The South Korean based Kia carmaker recently announced the all-new 2017 Kia Rio prior to the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the model coming with a plethora of high-end features at the exterior as well as inside.

From the start, in Europe, the 2017 Kia Rio will be offered with a wide palette of eight colors, 15-, 16- and 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, adding new and outstanding styling bits like longer bonnet, wider front overhang, tiger-nose grille and much.

The cabin is also tweaked with advanced technology, including updated connectivity with Android and Apple smartphone, 7-inch tousch-screen infotainment, Kia Connected Services with live traffic, speed camera locations, weather forecast, USB ports, satellite navigation and much more.

Let`s not forget the safety systems which are another plus for the new Kia Rio. We are looking here at a five-start Euro NCAP car with the best gizmos like Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition, Lane Departure Warning, Advanced High Strength Steel body shell, ISOFIX child-seat tether, six airbags, and anchor points for all passengers.

All these high-tech features are complemented by the fine materials inside, such as black and grey cloth seat upholstery, as well as the optional black or grey artificial leather, optional black red artificial leather seats and much more.

In the engine department, the 2017 Kia Rio packs an interesting engine choice, like the fresh 1.0-liter T-GDI with 98 horsepower and 118 horsepower, respectively, followed by a 1.25-liter and a 1.4-liter MPI petrols, ranging from 82 horsepower to 90 horsepower. Later on, a 1.4-liter diesel engine will also join the club, with 69 horsepower and 88 horsepower.
