A New Year, A New Look for Kia Rio

A new year, a new look – this is exactly what is happening to the favourite compact yet sporty car, the Kia Rio.

Exclusively distributed by Grand Motors Sdn Bhd in Brunei Darussalam, a brand new facelift of the Kia Rio was unveiled on 6 February 2015 at the Kia Showroom at the E-Government Road in Beribi.

More sleek and improved in design, the newer model comes with an upgraded efficiency that boasts a lower carbon emission compared to its predecessor thus a good investment for environmentally friendly people.

Made from high pressure die-cast aluminum and rigid ladder frame construction that reduces vibration, either the Gamma 1.4 or Kappa 1.2 Gasoline engines are sure to provide an optimum performance in durability, quietness, smooth-running as well as fuel saving.

Customers can choose either to buy the car with a Kappa 1.2 Gasoline Engine with 1,248 cc which has a maximum power of 84 ps (61.8 kW) @ 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 12.3 kg.m (120.66 Nm) @ 4,000 rpm or a Gamma 1.4 Gasoline Engine with 1,396 cc powering the car to 107 ps (78.5 kW) @ 6,300 rpm and a max torque of 13.8 kg.m (135.4 Nm) @ 4,200 rpm.

For selection, there is a choice between a 3 or 5 door hatchback and a 4 door sedan both stylish in design. Small differences between the designs are that the 1.4 version have fork lights and a 17-inch Alloy Wheel while the 1.2 cars have 15-inch Steel Wheel.

The new design promotes driving safety with the availability of hands-free Bluetooth connection that makes driving more convenient. The car is even more attractive as it is now equipped with a rear sensor making driving more secure and convenient.

Be amazed by the variety of colours the car offers- 9 to choose from according to customers liking.
