Product Overview

Kia Rio Mk4 (chassis code YB) facelift is a subcompact hatchback in production from 2020. It is available with a range of inline-3 and inline-4 engines that displaced 1.0 to 1.2 liters.
Compared to the Rio sedan, the hatchback has a more complete design, though it uses similarly low-grade materials. The car also lacks independent rear suspensions.
Another plus is the small 10.2m (33.5ft) turning circle.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
This is the updated version of the Rio that arrived in 2017. The range opens at around £14,000, but that's with a 1.25-litre naturally aspirated engine. At £21,000 in GT-Line S trim, the Fiesta comparison is surprisingly valid. The Rio’s handling is still about as exciting as a day in lockdown, mind you (but at least equally safe)

Pros
  • Fantastic infotainment system
  • Decent fuel economy
Cons
  • Awkward steering-wheel tugging
  • No automatic gearbox

The Rio range comprises straightforward 1, 2 and 3 specifications. Prices range from £14,000 to around £20,000. All cars come with at least air-conditioning, electric heated door mirrors, Bluetooth, auto lights and LED daytime running lights. Range-topping GT-Line S adds 17-inch alloy wheels, various sportier-looking trims.

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The facelifted Kia Rio supermini features a new mild-hybrid 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine. The engine is supported by a small lithium-ion battery that feeds a belt-starter generator. This can add a short boost of torque when pulling away or accelerating at low speed to help take the load off the petrol engine. Along with the new engine, the Rio receives Kia's new six-speed intelligent manual transmission. It's a manual, but not as we know it, because you still move the lever yourself.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Excellent infotainment tech

  • Lack of kit
  • No digital dashboard
