From The Experts

KIA Forte

Great design

Comfortable cabin

Decently powerful engine

KIA Rio Hatchback

When it comes to premium hatchbacks, there are very few options available in the market, which offer the stance and levels of a premium feel-good factor as the Kia Rio does. The hatchback is fairly large and the dimensions along with the low slung stance give the Kia Rio a smart and authoritative road presence.

It’s not only the exteriors of the Kia Rio which make it a premium looking car, but the hatchback is also pretty impressive when you step in its cabin as well. The overall cabin layout not only feels wide and well-built, but also the presence of many premium bits like a touch screen infotainment system, keyless entry with push-button start and automatic climate control makes it feel like a car from one segment above.

While the large dimensions give the Kia Rio a good presence, they also play a major role in making the interior cabin vastly spacious as well. The Rio offers an impressive amount of legroom and knee room, which are comparable to an entry-level sedan positioned one price bracket above it.

Little expensive

KIA Rio Hatchback

The Kia Rio’s 1.4-litre engine is fairly decent when it comes to performance on tarmac, but the fuel efficiency in both manual, as well as automatic variants, are not too excellent to write about.

The Kia Rio feels upmarket and modern in each and every aspect, however, the instrument console design feels too plain and unattractive, which makes up for a boring looking driver’s cockpit.
