Car Profiles - Kia Rio Hatchback

KIA RIO HATCHBACK

Unlike the previous generation hatchback which was less successful, the current one sells decently thanks to handsome looks and high end gadgetry. It has a versatile interior but the standard 1.4 has to be revved hard. A stylish hatchback out in the market that receives a facelift for this year.

The Good: Flexible interior
