The Kia Rio will make its UK debut at the Eco-Velocity event next month at the Battersea Power Station.
Kia’s all-new small car will feature alongside the brand’s award-winning city-car, the Piccanto, in a showcase of the manufacturer’s environmentally conscious and fuel-efficient line-up.
The Rio is billed as the cleanest, conventionally fuelled car to hit the UK market, emitting 85 grams of CO2 per kilometre and producing 88.3 miles per gallon.
It should be a strong contender for this year’s What Car? Green Awards due to be announced on September 7th. The motoring magazine is due to attend the event alongside Kia, hosting a parade of its title winners during over the weekend.
What Car?’s publishing director Andrew Golby declared: “Our involvement in EcoVelocity comes at a time when efficient motoring has never been higher on the agenda of car buyers.”
He added that members of the What Car? team would be on hand when the cars are not on parade to offer expert advice for drivers seeking more information or wanting to have a closer look at the winners.
