Kia Rio 2020 — a new model with 2 engines and advanced equipment (owner reviews)
In 2020, Russian roads will be clogged with new models by all the beloved “populists”.

In addition to the updated Solaris and Rapida, the offer will replenish the Kia Rio in a new body. In our country, a car breaks all records and diverges at 50,000 or more copies annually, which is a serious result for our market.
What the Koreans will offer this time, we will consider below.


It is immediately worth noting that the new Kia Rio 2020 model does not carry any technical load. This is just a small restyling of the 4th generation, released in 2017.

With her, the same set of power units and transmissions on a non-removable front-wheel drive platform, on which the main competitor is also based, is Solaris.

The trolley will please two MacPhersons in front and a torsion beam at the rear, the brakes are always disc with ventilation on the drive axle and the “drums” on the rear wheels.
Also on board are an electric power steering, a 6-speed manual or automatic as a transmission, electronic assistants ABS and EBD.

Production for the Russian market will again take place at facilities near St. Petersburg and the offer will also be 7 complete sets — Classic, Classic Audio, Comfort, Lux, Edition Plus and Prestige, where would you go without it.
Powertrains are also unchanged:
1.4 liter base gasoline aspirated with exactly 100 hp. at 132 Hm. Acceleration dynamics 12.2 seconds to hundreds, consumption 5.7 liters of the 92nd;

«Premium» aspirated 1.6-liter with a return of 123 hp at 151 Hm. Then the acceleration will be 10.3 seconds, and the flow rate will increase to 6 liters.

By the way, these measurements were made with the version equipped with a manual gearbox. When choosing a machine, acceleration will add 0.7 seconds, and the flow rate to 0.7 liters. In general, there was no sense in expecting something about Rio’s sporting characteristics initially.

It remains only to mention the equipment. The basic version receives a 100-horsepower engine with mechanics, side mirrors with electrically adjustable and heated, halogen optics, height-adjustable driver’s seat and steering column, 2 airbags, power windows on each door:


While in the top configuration, costing a little more than a million rubles, Kia Rio installs:

123-powerful engine paired with automatic transmission,
light sensor, LED optics,
additional turn signals on the side mirrors,
trunk opening with a button,
multimedia with a 3.5-inch touchscreen,
heated front row of seats, keyless entry,
door lock when driving, heated windshield,
4 pillows, parking sensors and fog.


The updated body as a whole remained recognizable, however, it is impossible not to note the current similarity with the once popular 2005 Subaru Impreza. It happened by chance or the Koreans were really inspired by the legendary model, a mystery.

It is impossible to say that the previous model Kia Rio had a weak design, but the new product significantly exceeds its predecessor.
The front part received a new block of gratings and head optics, the body kit architecture became “angrier”, more impressive C-shaped cutouts for foglights were added.

On the side, the silhouette demonstrates excellent balancing of the geometry; there is simply nothing to complain about. The feed as a whole remained almost identical to the previous generation.

In terms of dimensions, the Rio 2020 has become a little larger:
Length, mm 4400
Width, mm 1740
Height, mm 1470
Wheelbase, mm 2600


Koreans even before that preferred to implement bold decisions in their national sedan and this year was no exception. The interior has become even more modern and vibrant. For the latter, a two-color version of the combination of black and red overlays is responsible.

Torpedo goes towards minimalism. In the center is a small touchscreen with blocks of physical buttons on the sides and vents of baffles. The tidy remained analogous, in rich trim levels in the middle a compact on-board computer is added.

The central tunnel is very modest. In addition to the wings, the cup holder and a small niche for small things, nothing is presented. Handbrake habitually peeks out from under the armrest.

Armchairs received a conservative form, without sports hints, but a barely noticeable white cage and two-tone tailoring give some style.
