The Kia Rio is a smart-looking, sturdily built and practical supermini that is also affordable to run. The Rio comes in a range of trim levels to suit all sorts of driving tastes and budgets – and comes with a generous seven-year warranty.
A 1.25-litre 83bhp petrol engine is installed as standard and manages up to 51.4mpg on the combined cycle, while producing CO2 emissions from 125g/km. For more pace, opt for the 1.0-litre petrol engine, which reaches a top speed of 116mph and a combined fuel consumption of 56.5mpg.
Entry-level ‘1’ Rio grades are adorned with colour-coded, power-operated and heated door mirrors that perfectly complement the car’s smooth gloss-paint finish. Thanks to a five-door body, the Rio is easy to access, too, making it especially handy for rear-row travellers to get in and out. Inside, there’s room for five occupants, as well as a 325-litre boot space that trumps those offered by the Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and Volkswagen Polo. And, with rear seats folded, luggage capacity rises to a not-inconsiderable 1,103 litres.
A four-speaker sound system is included as standard, as is Bluetooth connectivity, which enables audio streaming and hands-free telephone communication. With an optional Advanced Driving Assistance pack fitted, the Rio features a Euro NCAP five-star crash-test rating. All models are installed with an array of driver aids, such as Anti-lock Braking System and Electronic Traction Control, which minimise the risk of skidding on less-than-perfect road surfaces.
