New road tax changes will be introduced for all new cars registered after 1st April 2017, read our guide to find out what these changes will mean for you.

The Kia Rio is a supermini that has proved a popular choice from Kia since its introduction in 2011. The Rio combines impressive performance and practicality with reduced fuel consumption and environmental impact, making it an ecologically sound vehicle for inner-city travel. Looking to buy a Kia RIO? With the Kia Rio there is a choice of either a three-door hatchback or a five-door vehicle, which both combine stunning visual design, with a comfortable interior for pleasurable daily journeys.

The exterior of the Kia Rio has many customisable options, with paint schemes such as Blaze Red, Bright Silver, Electric Blue and Clear White available for the bodywork. The overall look of the Rio is sports-focused, with sculpted flanks and a curved roof line creating a streamlined profile. LED daytime running lights are available on selected models, as is the option for stylish 17" alloy wheels.

The interior of the Kia Rio has been built around the centre console, with all functions and technological features within easy reach of the driver's seat. The easily understandable three-dial instrument cluster displays vital drive information, as does the on-board trip computer.

The steering wheel features controls for the infotainment functions, and Bluetooth® connectivity allows for safe hands-free telephone calls whilst driving. The interior luggage space begins at an initial 288 litres, but has the potential to open up to 923 litres with the lowering of the rear seats.

Regarding engines, the 1.1 litre and 1.4 litre diesel units offer exceptionally low running costs. The smaller edition in particular is astoundingly efficient, returning combined fuel consumption of 78.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 94g/km (well below the minimum threshold for Vehicle Excise Duty). For greater acceleration and response, however, the 1.25 litre and 1.4 litre petrol models are the best option; when equipped with the 1.4 litre edition, the Rio can accelerate from a standing start to 62mph in 11 seconds. With a wide range of features to suit all preferences and a range of new Kia Rio deals, buying your perfect car has never been so easy.

It has been awarded the five-star Euro NCAP safety award, giving drivers peace of mind as to the vehicle's safety qualifications. Kia's Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) is installed as standard, as is the Emergency Stop Signalling system. Airbags are installed throughout the vehicle, and parking sensors ensure that every parking manoeuvre is a safe undertaking.
