Customer Expeirence

The Kia Rio Sli hatch is an exciting new concept for all new small car owners. It has super exceeded the boundary of satisfaction for all small families and first car buyers. This vehicle has produced quality, safety, style, comfort and affordability, where other Brands and models have failed. The Rio has many important features and attributes, however what standards out the most over its competitors, is the massive 5 Year Unlimited Klm Warranty.

Kia has turned a basic 5 door Rio hatch, into a stunning spacious, well designed, award winning motor vehicle. It has an impressive new piece of technology, which creates, a fantastic fuel economy rate and a powerful 1.6 litre GDI engine. The new GDI engine has taken the performance to a new level, without exceeding the price barrier. Kia has also introduced an amazing 5 Star ANCAP rating, into the new Rio, which has helped the current model win over customers with small young families. Safety is a key element for anyone purchasing a new motor vehicle, as we can not control what is on the road.

The Rio has impressed everyone with its amazing new design from front to the back. It has also been fitted with features that take it up in class, such as daylight running lights, HID headlamps, 17 Inch alloy wheels, Full size alloy spare wheel and many more modern attributes. As you can see the Rio Sli hatch has clearly stepped up in the market and will now compete with the best of the small cars.

Peter Schraror has put a stamp on the Kia Brand in general, however especially the Rio, as the newly designed shape has certainly turned heads here in Australia. With comfort being a priority in his mind, it seems he has done the impossible, by creating the comfort level at a high standard. Not only has Peter Schraror put Kia on the map, but he has turned around a brand that could become the next biggest thing in the car industry.

2012 KIA Rio Reborn

I purchased
my Rio S 6 speed manual back in October of 2012 and am absolutely blown away by
the whole package that this car has. I love the styling and haven’t seen
another hatchback that looks as good as the Rio. The performance on the road is
insane, it hugs the road like a sports car, it’s so quiet and extremely fuel


The previous
car I had was a V6 and I found myself filling that up every week, but for the
Rio I can go 10 to 12 days without a refill. I can measure exactly how many
Km’s I am getting to a tank thanks to the trip computer with the trip metre,
distance to empty, avg. fuel usage, avg. speed etc. and the power is great, I
have no troubles at all getting around Brisbane. Even it powered up Mount
Tamborine with the family. It’s just a smooth drive.


The gear box
is unbelievable. It is crazy how smooth and responsive the gear changes are. My
Rio is an absolute pleasure to drive. You can plug your iphone in and choose
your playlist, albums, and artist and even put your contacts and recent calls
into the audio unit for quick access. I can call whoever I need to when I am
driving without worrying about the police and the Bluetooth is so clear. The
support that you get from KIA is second to none with the 5 year warranty this
is one of the cheapest and best performed cars out there.
