Kia Rio 2016

The 2016 Kia Rio range of configurations is currently priced from $6,999. Our most recent review of the 2016 Kia Rio resulted in a score of 6 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: Wait. No seriously wait for the new generation Rio to arrive early next year. I'm not saying this because it'll be prettier, cooler or more fashionable. Car aren't like jeans, it's not about trends, see the new Rio will be safer and smarter. If you can't wait, then go for the Cerato S, it's larger but the value for money at $19,990 makes it the smartest buy on the market right now.

This is what Richard Berry liked most about this particular version of the Kia Rio: Great looks., Comfortable ride., Good handling.

The 2016 Kia Rio carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1050 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.
