In its price segment the Kia Rio is one of the best-selling cars today. Recently the sedan has been updated now it is hatchback’s turn.

The front part is different now. Bumper, radiator grille and headlights have a new shape. More expensive versions have LED daytime running lights and lens headlights. The side part has a chrome lining along the lower part of windows: this element is barely visible but not elegant. The rear bumper is slightly changed, its lower part is made of black plastic. The rear headlights are equipped with LEDs which improves the visibility of stoplights.

The main change in the cabin is the steering wheel. It has a new design and it is adjustable. The steering-wheel ring is bigger and softer.

According to the engineers,the suspension has a slight improvement. However, you might not notice it. When you drive on good roads, the suspension remains rigid. Probably, on bad roads you will feel the improvements.

Talking about the car dynamics the car at normal speeds is quite predictable. It even has kind of sports potential. The Rio is not for fast driving but it is quite confident. The car has a 1.6-litre engine, 123 hp and 155 Nm.

The car is confident but less dynamic with a six-speed transmission. But with this transmission and active driving you will have to fuel the tank more often – it consumes about 10 litres of petrol per 100 km. the car with a 1.6-litre engine costs 700 000 roubles.

The hatchback is a little heavy at turns. There are no complaints about its brakes. It is stable due to the chassis. At higher speeds the Rio is excellent on the road and it is easier to change lanes.

In general, the car is confident and comfortable.

There are no major changes and it is for the best. After all not all changes are successful. Sometimes it is enough just to refresh a model slightly.
