The popular Kia Rio has undergone a facelift for 2015, with a fresh new look and plenty of new features giving this nifty supermini even greater appeal. Starting at very competitive price points, the new Kia Rio arrives with a number of trim levels available. The options include the range-topping and sporty Rio 4, which comes with 17-inch alloy wheels and leather upholstery.
All models benefit from reworked rear and front ends, with eye-catching lower air intakes and fog lights framed by chrome detailing to accentuate the Rio’s confident, modern style. The tail lights and headlights showcase an expressive restyling, and LED daytime running lights create both excellent visibility and a distinctive profile on the roads.
The revamped feel continues inside, demonstrated by the glossy black finish on the central console and the high quality materials used throughout. A DAB digital radio and electric windows – as well as Bluetooth® connectivity – will be fitted as standard, and the Rio 3 and Rio 4 models boast a seven-inch touchscreen complete with satellite navigation. An electric sunroof also features on the Rio 4, as well as a heated steering wheel and plush leather seats.
Two diesel and two petrol engines can be specified to power the latest Rio, with a cost-effective, efficient drive courtesy of the start/stop technology built into the vehicle. The entry-level Rio 1 remains one of the most eco-friendly superminis available, returning up to 88.3mpg combined and emitting as little as 86g/km of CO2.
