Kia Rio voted ‘Car of the Year’

Car Dealer Magazine has named the Kia Rio as the ‘Car Dealer Power Car of the Year’

Car Dealer Magazine has named the Kia Rio as the ‘Car Dealer Power Car of the Year’. The super-mini was voted the most popular car by dealers across the country. Michael Cole, Managing Director, receiving the award, said “Car Dealer is essential reading for all of us at Kia and winning the Car Dealer Power Car of the Year Award is an honour as it has been voted for by other magazine readers and dealers. We have sold almost 8,000 Rio since the latest models release last autumn and with the recognition of this award I am sure sales will continue to increase at a pace.”

The Rio is offered with a choice of four engines, two petrol and two diesels. All petrol manual versions of the new Rio comfortably exceed 50mpg, with CO2 emissions below the EU’s 2012 corporate average target of 130g/km. Even the 1.4-litre automatic version of the Rio is capable of returning 44.1mpg. The Rio boasts clean and sophisticated design, standard features include daytime running lights, body-coloured bumpers, door handles and door mirrors, speed-variable front wipers, headlamp levelling, front electric windows, 15-inch steel wheels, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, two-way steering column adjustment on the petrol model, a tachometer and trip computer, split folding rear seats, a boot light, a 12-volt power socket and an MP3-compatible RDS radio and CD player with USB and AUX ports.
