Replacing the Pride and Avella lines in the late 1990s, the Kia Rio has remained in production ever since.
It's now in its fourth-generation and although not as successful in sales as it once was it still acts as an important model in the Kia lineup.
In different regions of the world, you can find the Rio sold under other names such as the Pride, Tonic and K2.
You can buy the car as a standard hatchback or opt for a longer sedan version with a boot sticking out of the back or even a station wagon version (1999 - 2005).

Test results for the standard car scored just 3 out of 5 stars with Euro NCAP but if you purchased the safety pack as an extra it raised it to 5 out of 5 stars.
