Kia Rio 2012 test drive and consumer car review
Today at Test and Review blog we are going to take a closer look at the 2012 Kia Rio.
First of all we should say the new redesigned Rio looks awesome. It now ha much more settled looks and sporty design and feels more upmarket in general. The 5-door Rio is a small car but the way the interior space is used it could easily fit four adults and a fair amount of luggage.
For the 2012 model Kia Rio is offered with 1.6 petrol engine producing 138-hp and 123-ft. of torque. This engine is shared with the new Hyundai Accent which is produced on the same platform as the 2012 Kia Rio. With this engine the Rio achieves great fuel economy with both the 6-speed automatic and the 6-speed manual gearboxes.

As I said luggage space is more than generous for a car of this size.

What we think of the 2012 Kia Rio - it is a good car and definitely an improvement over the previous generation. The variety of the offered models is also a big plus against the competition in this segment.
We definitely recommend the 2012 Kia Rio, you can hardly go wrong with this one - it is compact, it looks modern, it drives well and the build quality is also on a very good level.
