Kia Rio achieves Diesel Car “Best Small Car” of 2012

Award winning dealDiesel Car magazine has named the Kia Rio “Best Small Car” in its annual Car of the Year issue – the third award won by Kia’s B-segment car in less than a year.

Praised for its style and practicality, Diesel Car admired the roomy, well equipped interior, as well as the seven year warranty, and commented that Rio “proves you don’t have to compromise if you downsize”.

Launched in August 2011, the all new Kia Rio also picked up Business Car Manager’s “Best sub 100g/km business car” award, as well as scooping the WhatCar? “Ultra-low carbon” award earlier this year.

Diesel Car magazine’s editor, Ian Robertson comments Small size, big talent, the Kia Rio shows how good a modestly sized car can be. It’s a downsizer’s dream.” “It looks good, drives with panache, and proves unarguably that a low price does not have to mean bargain basement.” He added.

Michael Cole, Managing Director, Kia Motors UK Limited said: “It’s a great honour to win yet another Diesel Car award, and I am particularly pleased that our all-new Rio has been recognised for its excellent value and great advantage in the all-important B-segment.  Rio is winning lots of new friends, particularly in the retail market, and this award will strengthen its appeal amongst diesel fans.”
