  • Sport and SLi complete the updated Rio range
  • The Rio line-up is back to full strength with the arrival of the high-grade SLi and Sport models to complete the range.

    With Rio continuing its long-standing role as the entree to the Kia brand, the new Sport - which replaces the previous SLS model - and the high-spec SLi will only add further appeal to the Rio.

    Both cars come standard with the 103kW and 167Nm 1.6-litre GDi engine coupled to Kia’s lauded in-house 6-speed automatic gearbox.

    “While the sales profile for Kia is continuing to widen across the model range, Rio remains an integral part of the strategy for continued growth in Australia,” Kia Motors Australia Chief Operating Officer, Damien Meredith said.

    “With the Rio model range complete Rio is again ready to fulfil its role within the KMAu family.”

    The Sport, at $21,490*, is available as a three-door only with a suite of safety features including Anti-lock Brake System with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist; ESC and Traction Control; Vehicle Management System; Hill-start Assist Control; six airbags, seat belt reminders and three child restraint anchor points (two ISOFIX).

    For the interior there are leatherette trim seats with red highlight stitching, front seatbelt guides and alloy sports pedals. The Sport is also available with a bespoke exterior signature colour, Digital Yellow.

    In the five-door SLi ($22,990*) the safety suite is available along with the addition of reverse parking sensors and child-proof rear door locks.

    The seats are leather and cloth trim with height adjustable front seat belts. There is privacy glass for the rear windows and tailgate, rain-sensing front wipers and climate control air-conditioning.

    Premium paint is available at an additional $520* on both versions.

    All Kia models benefit from an industry-leading customer care package which includes 7-Year unlimited kilometre warranty, 7-Year Capped Price Servicing programme and 7-Year roadside assist.


    * Manufacturer's List Price (MLP) excludes dealer delivery fees and the numerous statutory charges (commonly known as on-road costs). Additionally, please note that all prices, fees and charges are subject to change without notice, as are the specifications.
