With sharper contours giving the Rio a purposeful stance, its design is akin to that of a hot hatch, with an array of ten exterior hues and two aluminum alloy wheel designs working their way onto regional brochures. The spacious and modern cabin is accompanied by 325 liters of cargo space (the most of any offering in its segment) and a floating infotainment system with a 5.0-inch touch-screen and six speakers.
Mohammed Khader, President of Al Majid Motors Co. – KIA, commented: “The KIA Rio is an extremely popular vehicle – it accounts for 15% of KIA’s annual sales and is the company’s second best-selling model globally, representing an entry point to KIA ownership for hundreds of thousands of buyers around the world.”
