Introduction

What Car? says...

Look back at the history of the Kia Rio and you’ll find a car that always offered plenty of room at a very keen price, but one that never particularly stood out for its sparkle or desirability. For a car that competed in the packed, competitive small car class, it fell short on must-buy magic.

Fittingly, for the fourth generation of Rio, Kia took strides to sort that out. A new platform and turbocharged engines were employed in pursuit of improvements to both interior practicality driving appeal. In fact, so thorough was the Rio's redesign that you’re far more likely to remember the name than the design.
