Review

The Kia Rio is a competent supermini, but it’s pricey, and it doesn’t excel in any particular area

Trim: 1

Opt for base ‘1’ trim and you get air-con, front electric windows, heated electric door mirrors, Bluetooth, auto lights and a multi-function steering wheel. Automatic emergency city braking and lane assist are part of a reasonably priced option package.,

Engine: 1.25

The entry-level engine is a 1.25-litre petrol engine coupled to a five-speed manual gearbox. We haven't tried it yet, but it should prove fine for urban use, but we suspect you’ll have to work it hard on the motorway.
