Kia Rio – let’s look at the engine

Rio is the first Kia to have the option of a petrol 48V mild-hybrid system. This MHEV (Mild-Hybrid Electric Vehicle) comes under the ‘EcoDynamics+’ banner. The 48V lithium-ion polymer battery joins with a newly developed petrol engine, the ‘Smartstream’ 1.0-litre T-GDi, available in 100PS or 120PS versions. Combined with a new ‘clutch-by-wire’ system and an upgraded Idle Stop & Go system, the Rio offers a host of advantages. These include:

  • CO2 emissions reduced by between 8.1% and 10.7%
  • 16% higher peak torque output at 200 Nm (for 120PS version)

In addition to the ‘EcoDynamics+’ versions, there will be petrol versions featuring the same 100PS ‘Smartstream’ engine with a seven-speed auto dual-clutch transmission. There will also be an 84PS version with a 1.2 naturally aspirated engine.


UVO Connect ‘Phase II’ telematics

Rio now features the sort of connectivity and technology only usually found on much larger and more expensive models. At its heart is a large 8” touchscreen with split-screen capability, giving access to the sat nav, audio and your smartphone. You can also have access to the system via online voice recognition, so you can find points of interest and addresses, listen to weather updates or send text messages – all hands-free. Phase ll features include using your smartphone to find your vehicle, checking diagnostics and vehicle reports, and sending your Rio directions before you start your trip.


Your safety

This new Rio model gives you access to a vast array of active safety and driver assistance systems. These include:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with pedestrian, vehicle and cyclist recognition
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
  • Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
  • Blind-spot Collision Warning (BCW).
  • Intelligent Speed Limit Warning (ISLW)
  • Smart Cruise Control (SCC)
  • Lane Following Assist (LFA).
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)
  • Rear Occupant Alert (ROA)
  • Leading Vehicle Departure Alert


Kia Rio Exterior

It looks even more Rio

Rio has a new look inside and out. Outside there’s more style and it’s definitely a lot sportier. Full LED headlamps with integral running lights combine with the redesign of the front end to make the Rio sit confidently on the road. There’s a choice of nine exterior colours to choose from. These include two new colours: Perennial Grey and Sporty Blue.

Inside, the Rio is all about quality and technology. The GT-Line offers a black interior and a carbon-fibre effect dashboard. The seats come with stunning white piping and stitching.

Like every Kia, the Rio offers the peace of mind of a seven-year, 100,000-mile warranty. For more information about Rio pricing and full details of the Rio specification, please register your interest today.
