We haven't tested this product in the Which? test lab, but here is a product overview based on our experiences of other models from this brand.

Very cheap to buy now, the Rio is user-friendly and spacious. It's a budget car at best, but it does now feel like a hangover from an earlier age of Korean cars; the new-generation Rio, and Kia's larger Cee'd are both more desirable in every way. Read on for our full review to find out whether it's worth spending a bit more on something more modern, or if it'll do as a bargain banger.
