The Kia Rio now enters its fourth generation and will build on the outgoing model’s key strengths – sporty design, low running costs and good practicality.
The Rio’s new exterior and interior design was led by Kia’s design centres in Germany and California, in close collaboration with the company’s domestic design base in Namyang, Korea.
For now, only one trim level is being offered, with power coming from a 1.4-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. Despite its similar capacity, this is not a carried over engine from its predecessor. The previous model's 1,396 cc engine was from the Gamma family, whilst the new model's 1,368 cc powerplant is from the Kappa family. The naturally-aspirated port-injected engine produces 100 PS and 133 Nm. Energy is sent to the front wheels via a 4-speed automatic transmission.
Priced from RM79,888, the new Kia Rio is backed by Naza Kia Malaysia’s 5 year unlimited mileage warranty programme.
Standard features in the new Rio include 17-inch wheels, moonroof, smart key, rain-sensing wipers, automatic air conditioning, 3.5-inch multi information display, 6 airbags and ESC.
