New Kia Rio Quotes

Performance

There are a good choice of engines, with four available in the range, including a 1.4-litre petrol with 107bhp output, mated with a six-speed gearbox which is perfect for nipping around town. It marks an impressive 0-60mph time of 10.9 seconds which stacks well above the 0-60mph performances of both the 1.4-litre Ford Fiesta at 11.3 seconds and the 1.2-litre Vauxhall Corsa at 13.0 seconds. The Rio also claims the top spot for speed with its top speed averaging at 114mph, which for a supermini is particularly impressive. To see how the Rio handles book a test drive at askaprice.com.

Running Costs

All of the engines available in the Rio range are built to run cost effectively, the 1.1-litre CRDi 1 model with EcoDynamics and stop-start will deliver 88mpg and industry-leading CO2 emissions of 85g/km. The models all come in at around the same price but the Rio is still cheaper starting at around £13,000. Cumulatively and with the seven-year warranty against any unexpected problems, the Rio is definitely the bargain choice.

Equipment

The Rio is available in four trim levels, starting with the entry level 1 trim, which features daytime running lights, body-coloured bumpers, speed-variable front wipers, headlight levelling, 15-inch steel wheels and split folding rear seats. Further up the trims the 3 specification includes added extras of 17-inch alloys with low-profile tyres, ultraviolet-reducing solar privacy glass, LED daytime running and rear combination lamps, air conditioning, rain sensing wipers and cruise control. There are an extensive amount of optional extras and specifications across all of the trim levels, to read them in full please see our brochure.
