Kia Rio Review

History of the model

Kia Rio

2012 Kia Rio

7/00 Presentation of the model with four or five doors. ABS and two airbags as standard. 1.3 and 1.5 liter petrol engines with 75 and 98 hp (1.5-liter engine only in 5-door version)

9/02 Improvements in the model. New front and side airbags series motor power changed respectively to 82 and 97 hp Rounded car offers a lot of space in his thick tail and that his talents are limited.

“Rio” – the name stirs thoughts of sunshine and sandy beaches, but who travels to Rio, not Rio, think more sand in the gearbox so hard to move the lever and engine accepts as fallowing command. The suspension settings are so soft that if shock absorbers are defective. It is felt in the corners where the Rio, although good faith export front too soon. Best car deals in town where charm with small round turn, there seems unable to keep a clean preset rate. Rear passengers prefer to go faster because of the uncomfortable seating position caused by the lack of freedom knee. Kia Rio car is extreme frugal which is important only the purchase price but not the joy of driving.

Pros: large trunk, strong heating bargains

You can not get much information about the car, because as I wrote, Kia cars are healthy and just is not much to write (nothing bad happens).

It, so our forum as “uninteresting and boring” – in other brands his colleagues still have a lot to deal, and we poor – just drive, drive, drive … Chore …

The only disadvantage that comes to mind is poor insulation body (mainly the floor and under the fender) … somewhat poor quality of the carpet, which in the latest models, Kia Sportage is removed. Otherwise Kia is healthy and affordable car.

Colleagues I’m proud owner of a 2005 Kia Rio (2006 model) hatchback, 1.4, 16c, 97 horses. Overall, I am pleased for this compartment in acceleration and ride. So far I own other brands and really broke straight kia, any negative thoughts in me, but a car feels like to drive (in a longer period). I’ll agree about the car and the presentation and as well as repairs in. For now I have problems with the front bialetka or pad the cushion.
