The Mk4 Kia Rio supermini gains a sporty exterior and kit upgrades for flagship GT-Line spec

Kia Rio GT-Line - front

Kia has announced a sporty trim level for its latest Rio supermini, called GT-Line, which will be showcased at this year’s Geneva Motor Show ahead of a UK launch in the second half of 2018.

Having launched the Stinger sports saloon earlier in the year, Kia is keen to instill some of that car’s appeal into its lesser models. The Rio GT-Line is one such example, featuring a revised Stinger-esque front grille, 17-inch alloy wheels and a black boot spoiler.

Power comes from a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine producing 118bhp and 171Nm of torque through a six-speed manual gearbox. Fuel economy is quoted at 60.1mpg combined, with CO2 emissions of 107g/km. Kia will also offer 1.25 and 1.4-litre petrol engines with the Rio GT-Line trim when it launches, along with an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Kia has equipped autonomous safety features on the Rio GT-Line, such as forward collision avoidance with pedestrian recognition, lane departure warning and its new Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system, which detects drowsiness. Lane keep assist also will be available for customers.

The GT-Line Rio has also been fitted with synthetic black leather upholstery and metallic finishes dotted around the interior. A seven-inch infotainment screen is  standard, equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. A rear-view parking camera, heated steering wheel and heated seats can also be specified.

Kia says it will confirm UK prices for the Rio GT-Line when it debuts at the Geneva Motor Show on 8-18 March.
