UPGRADED KIA RIO

Kia_Rio_frontSignificant upgrades have been announced for the ever popular Kia Rio that will go on sale in July.

There’s a strong emphasis on infotainment, with a larger 8-inch Audio-Visual Multimedia Unit with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connection, eliminating the previous need for cable connection.

Kia Rio Sport and GT-Line models have a new 4.2-inch colour cluster displaying all the important driver information in one central location.

The GT-Line models have a full Climate Control and Automatic Window Defogger which will operate whenever the climate control system is on.

On the all important safety front, Autonomous Emergency Braking (car, pedestrian and cyclist) has been added to the Sport models joining GT-Line.
Sport and GT-Line will also gain Forward Collision Warning; Lane Keeping Assist; Driver Attention Alert (where driver steering inputs and patterns are monitored using cameras and sensors with an audio/visual warning issued if careless driving is detected) and High Beam Assist.

The updated Rio has a refreshed front design that, of course, retains the car’s iconic ‘tiger-nose’ grille, it has a lower, wider front bumper and distinctive new foglight housings.
