The Kia Rio has risen to popularity over the years as a small hatchback favoured by new drivers thanks to its cute looks, tech outlay and economical running costs.
While it's true that small hatchbacks are no longer as popular as they once were, the Kia Rio still manages to be one of the preferred options in the segment due to its sharp price point and level of standard equipment.
Pricing begins below the crucial $20,000 mark and rises only slightly above that for higher specification variants.
It's available with manual and automatic transmissions and with a single economical engine. Smartphone integration and a roomy cabin are on the menu for all variants.
The Kia Rio can comfortable fit two suitcases plus soft luggage as well. The specific boot size of the Kia Rio boot is 325 litres.
How long will a Kia Rio last?
The Kia Rio has a seven-year, unlimited kilometre factory warranty. You can be happy knowing that it'll at least last that long. That said, with regular maintenance and good care the Kia Rio will last long after that seven-year warranty has finished.
Where is the Kia Rio built?
The Kia Rio is built in Kia's South Korean factory.
