First drive: Kia Rio

Martyn Collins



Not heard of the Rio? You're not alone as Kia's B segment contender has struggled to make its mark in the UK with just 1.6% market share of the segment.

Originally launched as a slightly odd-ball estate back in 2001, the outgoing hatchback car was revealed in 2005 and apart from a new family nose, it will soldier on until this car debuts at the beginning of next month, with prices starting at £10,595.
