Reasons to love the Kia Rio

Fresh new look Plus Icon

Now that it’s had several updates and facelifts to bring it bang up to date, the Rio looks clean and slick whist maintaining its sturdy body. It’s much more of a good looking car.

Inside, the Rio has also been revamped with a trendier looking steering wheel, and some brand new kit. All models now have a DAB radio as standard. The infotainment system has a USB port so you charge up your phone, plus Bluetooth connectivity means you can easily stream music from your phone.

Inside there’s plenty of space upfront, although the back doesn’t compare quite so well - your mates may get a bit claustrophobic on longer road trips.

An enjoyable drive Plus Icon

The Rio is a comfortable car and handles equally well in town as it does out on the open road. The light steering allows you to nip around town and you can really start to enjoy the punchiness of the Kia Rio once you get going out on the motorway. There’s a choice of engines and they all offer a spritely drive.

Economical to run Plus Icon

The 1.2 litre models deliver good fuel efficiency at 67mpg which is good news for your pocket. Insurance wise you’ll be quids in too. The lower models fall into insurance group two and three whilst the top end versions are in group nine.

Safe and reliable Plus Icon

The Rio is ultra-reliable. Since this version was launched in 2011 there have been no major issues or mechanical problems reported - so hopefully nothing would go drastically wrong with this car.

There’s a big tick for safety too, scoring a maximum five stars for safety in the Euro NCAP crash tests. A decent amount of safety kit comes as standard - plus the 7-year warranty offered is market leading and unmatched by rivals. You’re covered for 100k miles or 7 years (whichever comes first) with unlimited mileage in the first three years.

Frequently asked questions

How does the insurance work? Plus Icon

We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Allianz, one of the largest insurers in the UK.

Will I need to have a black box in the car? Plus Icon

Your new car will be covered by our New Driver Insurance. This uses clever black box technology to help you develop your driving skills – and if you drive safely and remain claim free, you can earn an additional discount at renewal. The majority of applicants will receive free insurance, but where this is not available we will offer you discounted insurance or cashback.

What happens after the first year? Plus Icon

We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)

How long until I get my new car? Plus Icon

Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order. Whatever your circumstances, our friendly team can talk you through timescales for the different options – and we'll keep you posted on progress until it's delivered.
