The Kia Rio is a very impressive supermini which is great value for money offering a spacious stylish interior, there is plenty of shoulder and head room and also plenty of rear legroom even for adults. The boot is of a considerable size and the 60/40 split seat allows you to extend luggage space into the cabin if needed.
