Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Kia Rio hatchback?

As the Kia Rio is primarily used in towns and cities, you should be checking the bodywork carefully for parking damage and scrapes to the alloy wheels.

Many first owners will have purchased a Rio for the excellent claimed economy, especially for the 1.1 diesel. However, because this engine is equipped with a diesel particulate filter it’s worth checking that it has been taken on occasional longer journeys for the filter to regenerate.
