Russian dealers named the competitors of the new cross-hatchback KIA Rio X-Line, which will go on sale today, November 14th. The novelty is available in eight variants of complete sets at the price from 774 thousand 900 rubles to 1 million 024 thousand 900 rubles - only 30 thousand rubles more expensive than a similar sedan Rio.

According to the consultant analyst Frost & Sullivan Ivan Kondratenko, the rivals of Rio X-Line will be, first of all, LADA XRAY, Renault Sandero Stepway and Hyundai Creta. "If you compare LADA XRAY and Renault Sandero Stepway with other representatives of the class, it can be noted that XRAY has good advantages in comparison with others. This model is quite modern, has an attractive price tag (especially in conjunction with state support programs), and it also has good equipment. But Sandero Stepway is already quite outdated, because the model is on the conveyor for almost ten years without significant changes. Creta stands out against the background of others, since it more suits the definition of a crossover, and it it also has a price tag more expensive, "- says the expert.

Analyst of GK "Autoworld" Alexei Kuzmich among the competitors of the new cross-hatchback from KIA also calls the estate car LADA Vesta SW, whose sales started in the end of October, both in the usual modification and cross-version of the cross. According to him, with respect to this model, consumers have high expectations, price positioning is also quite competitive, so LADA Vesta SW is able to compete with the emerging KIA Rio X-Line model. As an advantage of the novelty from KIA over LADA XRAY and Renault Sandero Stepway, the expert calls the availability of a more technological and economical "automatic" transmission.

In his turn, the general director of "PLT Avtotsentr Kupchino" Vladimir Lisaev believes that the main advantages of Rio X-Line over competitors will be the guarantee policy, the equipment of basic equipment, as well as the quality of assembly of the Korean brand.

KIA Rio X-Line, of course, will claim for the leadership in its segment, - confident KIA KLYUCHAVTO representative, Sergey Chalenko. "Firstly, this is a new model and interest in the car is a priori assured. New design, rich technical equipment - all these are the parameters that the buyer will pay attention to when choosing a model. Among potential owners there is a youth audience, couples who lead an active lifestyle and need a roomy car, as well as modern and attractive. Secondly, it is a small business that can combine car operation in working mode with integration into family life, "- says Sergey Chalenko.
