  • Kia Rio wins Best Value New Car and Best Car for New Drivers
  • Awards are voted for by 43,000 real car owners
  • Kia Rio launched last year with more size, space and equipment

The Kia Rio has won not one, but two awards at this year’s Auto Trader New Car Awards - as voted for by 43,000 real car owners.

The Rio was awarded Best Value New Car and was commended for its low running costs and equipment available at affordable prices.  With new and highly efficient T-GDi turbocharged direct-injection petrol engines and improved multi-point injection (MPi) and turbodiesel (CRDi) power units, the Rio keeps fuel bills and taxation costs low for owners.

Commenting on the Best Value New Car award, Ivan Aistrop, Auto Trader’s Road Test Editor, said: “It’s important to stress that ‘value’ doesn’t mean ‘cheap’, and there are plenty of similar cars out there that cost less than the Rio. What the Rio gives you, though, is a vast amount of ability for a very affordable outlay, and most of the time, that’s far more appealing to buyers than a bargain pricetag. It’s good to drive, practical, nice inside, well equipped and comes with a fantastic warranty to make owning it even better value.”

The Kia Rio also won Best Car for New Drivers, making it the only car to be presented with two awards. Launched in 2017, the Rio is ideal for new drivers with its small and compact design and plethora of advanced active safety features available.

We, at John Grose Kia, are thrilled that the Kia Rio has scooped two awards, especially as they were chosen for by real car owners. The Rio has always been a popular choice from Kia’s range of stylish and efficient cars and to pick up two awards highlights Kia’s reliability and just how popular the brand is with consumers.

Come and test drive a New Rio today and see for yourself why its so good!
