Motion meets emotion

The new Kia Rio is designed to turn heads – in every way. Stunning to look at, this dynamic hatchback has a lot to offer: A level of comfort and equipment beyond what you’d expect for its class, as well as advanced technology and safety features combined with low running costs.

The new Rio will stir your senses. From the signature grille to the muscular rear section, it’s a car that dazzles with exciting, dynamic detail. Discover the redesigned 17" alloy wheels and the latest LED technology in the daytime running lights, rear lamps and side mirrors.

It’s your Rio, so why not add your own personality? Pick your favourite interior design – in black, grey or brown, in fabric, leather or a combination of the two. Whatever you choose, you’re guaranteed outstanding quality. And a style that’s yours.

Comfort & Versality

Moulded around you

Get the luggage space you need to suit your lifestyle. Start with 288 litres and fold back the 60/40 split rear seat to create even more room. For smaller items, there's the sliding armrest console and a 1.5 litre cooling glove box that keeps drinks and snacks fresh, even on hot days.

Enjoy a premium level of quality, style and equipment. Ergonomically designed heated front seats, a soft-touch dashboard, the heated steering wheel, fully automatic air conditioning and a deceptively roomy interior all help to create a more comfortable drive.

When it comes to equipment, the Rio doesn't hold back. You only need to carry the smart key in your pocket or bag and it's recognised by the car as you approach it. To unlock the door, simply press the button on the door handle. To start the car, press the engine Start / Stop button.


Relaxed, yet in control

Are you prepared for difficult road situations? Smart and caring features keep you covered in poor weather with a rain sensor turning on the front wipers when first drops are detected, and as soon as it gets dark, the auto light feature switches your headlamps on to low beam.

The intuitive 7" full-map navigation system incorporates a camera image indicating how much space you have behind you when reversing. And once you're moving down the road, you can rely on accurate maps – thanks to Kia’s 7-year map update.

How connected are you? The state-of-the-art infotainment system lets you play your favourite music via the CD player, or on your MP3 player or iPod via the USB outlet. There’s also Bluetooth® for calling or streaming music hands-free, and AM/FM radio with RDS function or DAB (digital radio) to keep you in tune with the world.


Strong and caring

The Rio looks after you and your passengers. Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), six airbags, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), cornering lights, speed limiter, rear parking sensors and a high-tensile steel body cage all help to provide maximum protection and peace of mind.

Are you prepared for difficult road situations? The new Rio is, with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) and Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) – all standard features to help you steer clear of any potential danger.

When starting on a steep hill, HAC prevents you rolling backwards. Brake grip is maintained for two seconds until the accelerator is activated.


Same family. Different look.

Open your eyes to another level of driving excitement with the flowing lines of the new 3-door Rio. Punchy and powerful in its looks, the 3-door model comes with the same fuel-efficient engines and extremely low emissions as its 5-door brother.

Ready to take a seat? The head-turning experience continues on the inside. The 3-door Rio surprises with its impressively spacious interior, safety features and high-tech amenities – providing you with every comfort for a more enjoyable ride.
