Safety and style headline the 4th generation Kia Rio

By May 28, 2020 Manufacturers

The upgraded fourth-generation Kia Rio will be welcomed into the Kia Motors Australia garage as the latest iteration of a long-serving brand favourite.

The new version features a range of enhancements with improved safety a stand out feature. The Rio will support six airbags, five seatbelts, ABS and stability control with Autonomous Emergency Braking (car, pedestrian and cyclist) added to the Sport and GT-Line variants.

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.

“Over the best part of two decades the Rio has won a well-earned reputation for comfort, safety, reliability and outstanding value,” KMAu Chief Operating Officer Damien Meredith said.

“The improvements to the fourth generation will only enhance that reputation for not only the Rio, but the wider Kia family.”

The car features a handful of design updates for 2020. The refreshed design retains the car’s iconic ‘tiger-nose’ grille, plus the introduction of two new colours – Perennial Grey and Sporty Blue.

Like all KMAu products the Rio will enjoy the industry’s most comprehensive 7-Year Warranty, 7-Year Capped Price Servicing and 7-Year Roadside Assist package and localised ride and handling.
