New Kia Rio Honoured

Did you know... the Kia Rio has been honoured - again?

Did you know... the Kia Rio has been honoured - again? In fact, the super-efficient 1.1 CRDi EcoDynamics variant has claimed the ‘Best sub-100g/km business car’ in the Business Car Manager Best Business Car 2012 Awards. This complements its success at the Red Dot Design Competition, where the Rio earned a 'product design' category award.

Ralph Morton, Editor, Business Car Manager, revealed: 'Any Kia Rio is a good car – but the EcoDynamics version is a champion. It returns a staggering 88mpg and emits just 85g/ km of CO2thanks to a punchy and characterful 1.1-litre three-cylinder diesel engine.'

Did you know... the Kia Rio has other virtues to complement its environmental wizardry? It has composed handling, for starters, and the ride is reasonably comfortable. The pleasing equipment specification helps too. Even the basic model has: power steering, Bluetooth, MP3 playback, and an electronic stability programme. High-spec trims have cruise control, electric mirrors, and climate control too. The Rio is clearly a capable mainstream alternative - if you can live with the arguably unfashionable badge. Finally, did you know that prices range from only £9,995 - £14,895? No wonder the Kia Rio keeps claiming titles.
