Available for the first time from early 2012, the new KIA Rio three-door is designed primarily for the European market. The KIA Rio 3-door has the same key dimensions as the 5-door model with the length of 4,045 mm, width of 1,720 mm, height of 1,455 mm and wheelbase of 2,570 mm.
The KIA Rio three-door will be available with the same range of powertrains, equipment and option as the five-door. The new Rio three-door will offer a choice of four efficient three- and four-cylinder engines with a 75-109 ps power range. The fastest KIA Rio three-door will accelerate to 62 mph in 11.5 seconds and be able to reach a top speed of 114 mph. Fuel consumption will be as low as 88.2 mpg for the newly-introduced EcoDynamics diesel model, which will also deliver an industry-leading CO2 rating of just 85 g/km.
