Spike Ballantine
Compact Sophistication


On December 26, 2019

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption 6 L/100km

If you’re looking at a car in this class, the list of choices is quite long: besides the Kia Rio, there’s also the VW Polo, Ford Fiesta, Honda Jazz and Renault Clio. Parked next to those options, the Rio does look a little more sophisticated; with with LED running lights and 17” wheels, it definitely packs more character in its styling that almost all of its competition.

Powering the Rio is a 1.4 4-cylinder naturally aspirate motor, with 74kW and 135Nm, with a choice of either a six-speed manual or 4-speed automatic, driving the front wheels. The drive in the Rio is fairly relaxed, with light steering and an easy gearshift. The ride setup is very good, with a focus on comfort and good grip - although it’s arguably not the most involving drive in its class.

Like the styling, the interior has a sophisticated edge that delivers good design, a top class layout and decent spec. A touch screen (which includes Apple Car Play or Android Auto), climate control and leather are part of the TEC spec, which adds to the USB, aux connection, multi-function steering wheel and Bluetooth that’s across the range. Overall, there is a good sense of value, and there’s a good space all round - Kia claims that the Rio’s head- and shoulder room are near the top of its class.

Boot space is also good, and includes a full sized spare wheel.
