KIA introduced cross-hatchback Rio X-Line for Russia


The company KIA Motors has published the first images of a new model for the Russian market - cross-hatchback KIA Rio X-Line. Sales of new items will begin in November of 2017, reports the press service of KIA Motors Rus.

The new cross-hatchback, developed on the basis of the most popular model in Russia KIA Rio, has spectacular decorative front and rear bumpers, which further protects wheel arch extensions and black side moldings from dirt and scratches. Adapted suspension settings provide a higher energy intensity, which, together with the increased ground clearance (170 mm), will increase the car's capabilities and driving comfort level both in urban conditions and on country roads. For the convenience of fixing the boot, skis or bicycles on the roof of the Rio X-Line there are installed rails.

For the Rio X-Line, a new design of 16 " light alloy wheels has been developed. The car will be produced at the Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Rus plant in St. Petersburg. The novelty will be offered with two variants of gasoline engines - 1.4 liters (100 hp) of the new Kappa family or 1.6 liters (123 hp) of the Gamma family in combination with 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions. For the new Rio X-Line it will be offered LED daytime running lights and taillights, a variant of the interior with a trim of seats made of eco-leather, there is provided a rear-view camera for a number of complete sets.

As noted, KIA Rio X-Line is the first model in the new line of popular models of KIA, offering customers more opportunities and spectacular design solutions. In September of 2017, at the Frankfurt Motor Show, KIA Motors introduced another representative of this line - Picanto X-Line, which will be released to the Russian market in the first half of 2018.
