1960 Kia Rio
Reviewed 17 Jan 2019

New 2019 Kia Rio diesel K1, only diesel variant available in Ireland. A serious drop in standards with this car the third Rio I have owned. Poor quality components are obvious from first sight of the car, even the carpets are of very poor grade. Window winders on the rear windows are of shockingly poor quality, all the other Rio's I have owned had electric windows in the rear. The plastic finishes in the front of the car are a throw back to the seventies even with the 7" touch screen thrown into the centre! The glove box is so small that even the manuals and service record folder don't fit into it! The boot is tiny, even smaller than the older models. More road noise too than the older variants, too soon to judge fuel and economy figures but look similar to the previous models. No air-con in this variant either despite the increase in price over previous versions. The upholstery looks quite good but the material is of poor quality and is unlikely to last the test of time. Looks like Kia are not designing the car to last any longer than the 7 year 150k km warranty. Already regretting the purchase of this car and I expect it will be my last Kia Rio!!!

In the 4 years I have had this car, I haven't had so much as a day's bother. It has full service history and remaing Kia Warranty is still on the car.
