The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Launch -

THE new 2017 Kia Rio boasts at­trac­tive fea­tures, and is priced at RM79,888 on-theroad with­out in­sur­ance. The 2017 fourth-gen­er­a­tion 1.4litre Rio is of­fered in four colours, namely Clear White, Sig­nal Red, Smoke Blue and Silky Sil­ver.

It has a 1.4-litre Kappa MPI DOHC D-CVVT petrol en­gine with 100PS at 6,000rpm and 133Nm of torque at 4,000rpm mated to a four-speed au­to­matic gear­box.

Its bold dy­namic de­sign fea­tures the trade­mark ‘Schreyer’ tiger-nose grille, while the tail­gate han­dle also dou­bles as the hous­ing for the rear-view cam­era.

It of­fers more head, shoul­der and legroom, and the tail­gate is now wider by 71mm and lower to the ground by 26mm – this al­lows own­ers to store wider, bulkier items.

There is a five-inch LCD touch­screen mated to a six-speaker au­dio sys­tem with MP3, Blue­tooth and USB fea­tures.

Other at­trac­tive fea­tures in­clude 60:40 folding rear seats, a sun­roof, au­to­matic air-con­di­tion­ing, key­less en­try, push start but­ton, pow­ered win­dows, au­to­matic head­lights with static bend­ing lights and LED day­time run­ning lights.

Safety fea­tures in­clude all­round disc brakes, six airbags, speed sens­ing au­to­matic door lock, im­pact sens­ing au­to­matic door un­lock, ISOFIX baby seat mounts, ESC (elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trol) and HAC (hill start as­sist con­trol). – THOMAS HUONG
