Diamond review   KIA's RIO to the power of 3
Car review of KIA Rio 1.4 CVVT (since 2012) by RICHADA

Advantages: Equipment. Style. Guarantee.
Disadvantages: Costs Driving Position. Road Noise. Visibility

WHAT IS IT? The Rio is Kia’s alternative to the Ford Fiesta – the archetypal supermini. Available in two and three door variants, the Rio competes for sales in one of the largest selling vehicle segments world wide currently. Looking rather differen ... Read review

Interesting review. On the question of dealerships, I can confirm I've been impressed with my (fairly) local Kia dealer over the last 4 years. Still, I've had few complaints with Skoda or Hyundai dealers also used in the same period. I can also confirm generally good (fm) reception of Radio 2 in my Picanto, though the preset does occasionally revert to another national BBC station occasionally, which can be irritating.

Great used buy!
Car review of Kia Rio 1.3 by jayarrscott

Advantages: roomy boot, easy to drive , fast enough, cheap to maintain, very reliable (since I bought 2 yrs ago)
Disadvantages: hard seats & suspension & a bit noisy at speed.

Bought mine over 2 years ago with 32k miles on clock for £2k less £400 trade-in for old banger. One of the best bargains I've ever had. I use mine for local drives (up to 30 miles) & never had a hiccup.Boot is cavernous (esp with back folded flat - ... Read review

Advantages: Value. Equipment. Economy. Build. Drivability. Performance. Ride.
Disadvantages: Traction. Tiny Boot.

...IS IT? The Kia Picanto is one of the cheapest cars that you can currently purchase new. The lead-in model to the ever expanding Korean manufacturers’ range, described by some as a city car; the Picanto has proven a pop ... Read review

Car review of KIA Optima 2.4 MPI (2011) by cheddasee

Advantages: touch screen, back up camera, heated and ac seats, eco seating, steering wheel controls
Disadvantages: small engine

Absolutely wonderful, I never thought I'd switch from Ford, but after having a negative experience at the local dealership, I went to Kia. Wow, was I surprised. From the EX to the LX to the SX, absolutely amazing. Lots of options, and has a very sleek loo ... Read review

Driving In My Rio
Car review of Kia Rio 1.4 Domino by rosebud2001

Advantages: Relatively inexpensive new, 7 year warranty, good build quality, full automatic gearbox available
Disadvantages: Cheap looking dashboard, have to use Kia garages to maintain warranty

My beloved Toyota Corolla's slow demise began in 2009 and with hindsight I should have bought a new car long before I finally realised the Corolla had given up the ghost. It had become a money pit for me over the final year I owned it with exhaust issues, ... Read review

Car review of Kia Rio 1.3 by emmad5689

Advantages: Reliable, cheap to run, looks good
Disadvantages: Back seat too slanted, boot cover

I once drove a Kia Rio as a courtesy car and really liked the car so when it came to buying a new car we decided to have a look to see if there was one out there within our price range. We found our car at a local second hand garage and paid £1400 for it ... Read review

Lovely big family car
Car review of Kia Sedona by Nikkidavid77

Advantages: Very big family car
Disadvantages: Hard to park and parts expensive

We bought our Kia Sedona in April 2010, it was 55 plate but had only done 17 k miles. When we first looked at it we were a little worried about the size as seemed so much bigger than the average MPV but we then realised this was an advantage. It has so mu ... Read review

Kia Sedona 2.2 CRDI 1 MAN- Loadlugger par excellence - great car
Car review of Kia Sedona 1 2.2 CRDi by colley1275

Advantages: good MPG for size of vehicle, excellent load lugger, great towcar, great for kids and dogs

I bought my 2010 car as an ex demo model, with just 2500 miles on the clock in July 2010. I have since put 12500 miles on in 6 months and the only time this car has paused for breath was its service at 10k miles !! MPG - I get 520 miles out of a tank wh ... Read review

New to Kia but converted
Car review of Kia Picanto 1.0 by Pickle_99_uk

Advantages: Reliable, good fuel consumption
Disadvantages: But cramped in the back and little boot space.

The Kia was the first new car I bought, previously I;d always bought second hand. But my husband persuaded me and the prince was £6000 and seemed like a good deal. That was in 2006 and I still have the car and its running well. In terms of reliability ... Read review

Ah, the penny has just dropped - yours is the bigger engined 1.1........unlike my 999cc version - or indeed the Megane shown at the top of this review! R. by RICHADA
I like your white one and especially the hub caps! The Orange one that I was driving and reviewed was the original, just out of warranty and having covered 60,000 miles it was still in fine fettle. If that one was anything to go by you can expect better economy from yours once the engine has fully run in - I got very close to 60mpg out of "mine". R. by RICHADA

good review - is your fuel consumption for town driving as I would expect well over 200 miles for £20 in my 1108 Fiat - which is simialr size car. Pity Ciao have mixed it up and put the photo of a Renault Megane ? ? maybe you could take a photo of your car and add it to the review, or ask ciao to change the main picture. by exup35
