Kia Rio Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Rio here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Kia Rio 2019: Is it economical to run premium petrol?
The Kia Rio only requires 91RON unleaded. The engine is tuned for that octane rating, so you won’t gain anything, apart from more space in your wallet, by switching to 95 or 98RON fuel. Despite every premium petrol marketing campaign suggesting otherwise, running on more expensive fuel won’t gain you any performance or greater fuel economy, so stick with 91.
What car should I buy that is reliable and safe?
You’ve got a limited budget, which will determine the car you can buy. It will be a relatively old car, so buy one in the best condition you can find, with the lowest odometer reading, a good service history, and the best safety rating. Try a Mazda3, Toyota Corolla, Kia Rio, and Hyundai i30 from 2008/2009.
Kia Rio 2019: Problems with sports shift
You’re possibly trying to downshift at a speed that’s higher than it was designed to do. Try downshifting at a lower engine speed.
