Even at rest, the all-new Kia Rio new exterior expresses motion from every angle. The bi-function headlamps and latest evolution of Kia’s front grille present a bold new look.

When developing the all-new Kia Rio, our designers and engineers gave top priority to delivering incredible safety standards. As well as being the first car in its class to feature Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) with pedestrian recognition, it is also fitted with a Lane Departure Warning System. And with 325 litres of cargo space and split-folding rear seats as standard, it is ready to accommodate even your biggest plans. The chassis has also been modified to ensure more agile and immediate handling, and improved ride comfort - for a more engaged and enjoyable driving experience.
