UK Range

Three trim levels plus a First Edition flagship model

The all-new Rio is available in four trim grades – badged ‘1’, ‘2’ and ‘3’ for simplicity, in familiar Kia style – with a limited-run ‘First Edition’ model at the pinnacle of the range. All are extensively equipped, rising to truly luxurious for the upper two levels.

Even grade ‘1’ is fitted as standard with air conditioning, front electric windows with an automatic function on the driver's side, remote locking, electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, a 3.8-inch display screen, Bluetooth, automatic light control, bi-function projection headlamps with cornering lights and LED daytime running lights. There are body-coloured bumpers, door mirror casings and door handles, steering wheel-mounted controls and 60:40 split rear seats. A four-speaker audio system is standard and safety provisions include ESC, VSM and Hill-start Assist Control to prevent the car from rolling backwards when setting off on steep inclines.

Grade ‘2’ supplements all this with 15-inch alloy wheels in place of similar-sized steel wheels, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gearshifter, electric windows at the rear as well as the front, electric folding mirrors with LED indicator lights, a DAB radio, a 5-inch colour display screen, a six-speaker audio system, a reversing camera and rear parking sensors, a 3.5-inch premium supervision cluster, rear as well as front USB charging ports, cruise control with a speed limiter and the Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Departure Warning systems. There is a chrome surround for the black radiator grille, premium black cloth upholstery and a centre storage box.

Additional features on grade ‘3’ include 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic air conditioning with an automatic defogging system, black faux leather upholstery, a 7-inch touchscreen satellite navigation, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, rain-sensing front wipers, privacy glass on the rear side windows and tailgate, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity and Bluetooth with voice recognition.

Finally, the ‘First Edition’ adds 17-inch alloys, a smart key entry system and engine start/stop button, stainless steel pedals, black and red faux leather upholstery and LED rear lights.
