Kia Rio 2020 - 2021 Overview
There are two variants of the Kia Rio hatchback available here in the Philippines: the Kia Rio Hatchback 1.4 LX AT and the Kia Rio Hatchback 1.4 EX AT. It comes in Silky Silver, Smoke Blue, Aurora Black, Clean White, Deep Sienna Brown, Platinum Graphite, Signal Red, and Urban Green.
The Kia Rio was introduced worldwide in 1999. The first generation was made to replace the Kia Pride and the Ford Festiva. The second generation was widely supported in the United Kingdom and North America. An acclaimed global version was released in its third generation. It was fitted with an engine that releases the lowest carbon dioxide emission during that time but produces the highest miles per gallon. The 2011 to 2017 model received many awards such as Carsguide’s Car of the year for 2011.
On its fourth generation, the all-new Kia Rio Hatchback was conceptualized in the company’s California and Germany design centers. It is offered in two different models: the global model and a specific model for China and Russia. In the Philippines, the Kia Rio Hatchback is offered either with manual or automatic transmissions.
The Kia Rio Hatchback measures 4,050mm long, 1,720mm wide, and 1,455mm tall. It's a well-proportioned hatchback with pleasing features such as its signature stretched radiator grille, Bi-projection headlamps with daytime running LED lights, modern-looking aero blade wipers, and integrated turn lights.
Its body bears smooth and subtle lines. The back of the Kia Rio Hatchback features nice details such as a rear spoiler garnish with a stoplight, an efficient antenna, and a pair of modern taillights.
Five fully grown adults can be accommodated in the Kia Rio Hatchback’s spacious cabin fitted with comfortable amenities such as 60:40 split-folding rear seats, adjustable anchored seatbelts, bottle holders in the front and rear door, rear USB charging port, and center console armrest. The second-row seats can be folded fully, giving way to its maximum trunk capacity of 288 liters.
