Throughout the last couple of years there has been a shift towards smaller, light passenger vehicles. Initially these cars were barebones, simple machines designed to get you from A to B in an inner-city setting and not much else. The original Kia Rio was one of the early players to the market, and with a super low drive-away price coupled with super cheap replacement parts it was a force on Australian roads. With continued success the Rio has been able to exist long enough to warrant a rebirth and a new start in the ever changing car market.
Enter the all new Kia Rio Reborn. A sleek and stylish, compact, everyday car that gives you modern technology and fuel savings while still maintaining low drive-away prices and servicing and replacement part costs.
The Reborn Rio is offered in three variants – the base 'S' model, the mid 'Si' and the top range 'Sli'. All models offer a long list of standard safety features and a 5 star ANCAP safety rating. Some features include: anti-lock braking, electronic brake distribution, brake assist, electronic stability control, traction control, vehicle management, hill-starts assist control, seatbelt reminders for all seat positions, and 6 SRS airbags with front seatbelt pre-tensioners.
On the drive side of things the base 'S' model comes with a 1.4l MPi petrol engine and either 6 speed manual or 4 speed manumatic gearbox. The 'Si' and 'Sli' variants both come with a larger 1.6l GDi petrol engine and a 6 speed manual or 6 speed manumatic gearbox.
Despite being categorised as a small car, the Rio Reborn offers plenty of room for passengers as well as a deep boot with full spare wheel. Features include Bluetooth, steering wheel audio controls, a sporty grill with pointed head lamps and aggressive bumper. Jump on over to Suttons Kia Waitara Kia dealer and test drive one today.
