Rio

FEATURES

The new Kia Rio features an advanced mild hybrid powertrain, giving you low-emission everyday driving. By pairing the latest 1.0 T-GDi gasoline engine with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery, it can reduce fuel consumption levels. What’s more, the integrated ‘e-system’ recovers kinetic energy during deceleration phases to provide torque assistance when accelerating. (Available on the '3' and 'GT-Line S' grades)

Warns about potential hazards, protects if needed. Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)⁷ on the new Rio comprises a radar on the front bumper and camera on the windscreen to check for upcoming hazards such as pedestrians, cyclists or other cars. Should it detect something, it warns you and brakes automatically if necessary, to help avoid or mitigate an accident. (Standard on '2' upwards, optional on '1')

Always get the full picture when reversing into a parking spot. Whenever you reverse into a parking space, the camera will automatically display the rear view on your 8" LCD screen to give you better visibility behind your new Rio, along with dynamic guidelines to help guide you into place. ('2' grade upwards)

Keep an eye on the blind spots. When you want to change lane, the BCW system detects any vehicle in your blind spot and warns you. (Available on the 'GT-Line S' only)

It’s time to use your smartphone in the car in a smarter way. With Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™, everything on your phone goes directly to your car’s built-in display: maps, calls, texts, apps, you name it. ('2' upwards)

The UVO app⁵ revolutionises the level of control and peace of mind afforded to you: Check your car’s fuel level or current location, and should you find its doors are not locked, close them remotely right away. The UVO app on your smartphone also gives you access to a wide range of diagnostic data about your new Rio and can even guide you the way by foot to your final destination after you parked your car.
