Kia Rio 3 door details released 0

Details of the upcoming Kia Rio have officially been released which include the prices and the specifications.

Only the doors are the main difference

For the first time ever the Kia Rio will have three doors. After being debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2011, the car created a lot of interest and brought on a lot of admirers. Compared to it’s five door counterpart, the three door version will save you £600. The only difference is the number of doors as both types will come with the same engine and trim variants.

Trim levels

All car’s come with Kia’s special 7 year warranty scheme. The base level models known as “1” will have electric windows along with a trip computer installed. The number “2” trims will get front fog lights to enhance safety and style along with alloy wheels. The number “3” trim comes with cruise control and air conditioning.

Standard features
Standard features are pretty generous coming with front electric windows, 15 inch steel wheels, two way steering column adjustments, two way steering column adjustment split folding rear seats, a CD player with USB ports to name just a few.

Different variants

Two petrols and two diesels are able to be chosen from. The 1.1 CRDi EcoDynamics is the greenest option in the range emitting just 99g/km of C02and achieving 74.3 MPG at the same time. Start stop technology, which turns off the engine whenever it is not being used only for it to start up again when needed comes with every diesel engine.  The 1.4 litre petrol variant is the most powerful whilst offering a respectable 70.6 MPG worth of economy.


The three door variants naturally look that bit extra sportier. Will it be as popular as the five door variant? Orders can be taken now on the car from main dealerships.
