NEW Kia Rio models were officially launched yesterday and shown to the public by Grand Motors Sdn Bhd at its showroom in Beribi.
The three, four and five-door models are aimed at all regardless of lifestyle.
Whether a client falls under the category of a daily commuter, a weekend warrior or a fashion trendsetter, there’s a Rio that is sure to bring out their best, and there is no longer a need to compromise on style when searching for that perfect combination of comfort, economy and functionality.
With an impressive level of safety and convenient features, the Rio turns journeys into memories that last a lifetime with its refined road abilities and comfort level befitting larger sedans, which make it the ideal excuse to take that long awaited road trip.
Under the bonnet of the Rio lies the next generation 1.2 or 1.4 petrol engines that provide optimum performance with enhanced fuel economy, high pressure die-cast aluminium to keep weight down and save on fuel as well as a rigid ladder frame construction that helps reduce vibrations.
Aside from the engine, high-tech refinements are at your fingertips as Kia designers have engineered a car with features that are cutting-edge yet simple to use.
Other features of the all new Kia models include Bluetooth that enables drivers to make and answer calls hands free, stream music through the car audio system, a steering wheel audio remote that is part of the telescopic steering wheel.
All three Rio models come in blue, red, white, silver, black, yellow, brown and platinum graphite.
