The KIA Rio is a product of the South Korean based auto manufacturer KIA.
The Rio first came into the market in August 2000 and has been in the market since then. The Rio, which is now in its third-generation, has evolved over the years. KIA has produced the Rio as a three-door hatchback, a five-door hatchback, and even a four-door sedan. An inline-four engine, available in both the gasoline and diesel option, powers the Rio. The vehicle is a front-wheel drive as well.
The KIA Rio is seen as a replacement of the KIA Pride. The third-generation Rio is well advanced technologically compared to its predecessors. It is also available with several engine options. 1.25l or 1.4l petrol engines are among the engine options available. A 1.1L CRDi Turbo Diesel Engine is also an option on offer. This particular engine has the lowest emissions yet the highest MPG recorded for any non-electric as well as hybrid car available.
