The all new 2019 Kia Rio GT-Line

November 27, 2018 3:02 pm |

The 2019 Kia Rio GT-Line means business; you can tell by its compact size and solid build. It's not a car to be messed with, and we're loving the re-vamped look the marque is bringing to this vehicle. However, it has a lot more to offer than just its snazzy new appearance.

All the Kia Rio space with improved performance

One of the things that's loveable about the Kia Rio is how, despite its smaller size, it still makes such good use out of what's there. A high roof and low seats in the front increases the sensation of space, and passengers in the back will find that there's decent legroom there as well.

Ample storage provides room for all those knick-knacks that somehow become essential to have in your vehicle, and a separate shelf gives you a place for your phone and wallet. No one has to worry about giving up their coffees either, with holders big enough for extra large doses of energy. Or water bottles if you're trying to give up on caffeine. 

Bring fresh expectations when getting in behind the wheel of the Kia Rio GT-Line

Upgraded to a three-cylinder turbo engine, this new and improved Kia Rio GT-line holds a lot more kick than its older counterparts. Paired with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, the motor dishes out 88kW of power and 172 Nm of torque. 

Wide shoulders makes cornering a breeze, and the overall ride is well-controlled with the responsive steering and Kia Rio's locally-tuned suspension as excellent as its ever been. 

As for its economy, Kia has made some enhancements here too. At a tidy 5.8L/100km, you can't find much to fault. 

Upgrading on safety

As a standard, expect city-speed AEB and Forward Collision Warning from your new and improved Kia Rio GT-Line. These additions come along with a couple of others, such as:

  • Lane Keep Assist.
  • Lane Departure Warning.
  • Driver Attention Alert.

For the price, Kia has made sure they provide decent safety features for their Rio GT-Line, and it's a definite improvement on older models.
