Getting out on the road in your own car when you have mobility issues can be a difficult process, but with Wessex Garages we have a simple solution. We are proud to be supporters of the Motability Scheme and have a wide range of vehicles that we can adjustment to meet your requirements.
The new Kia Rio is one of those cars available on the scheme and it puts the fun back into driving. This carnival-style compact car is available in a range of eye-catching colours, and the smooth but firm bodylines give an indication of its equally thrilling performance. The ideal urban car, it's capable of fitting into the tightest of parking spaces, but there's enough room inside for the whole family.
Kia cars are known for their creative, exciting designs and the new Kia Rio is no exception. The long windscreen and sloping roof ensure great visibility, while the eagle-eye headlamps add a sporty element. You can choose from a range of chunky alloy wheels and practical features with remote central door and tailgate locking included as standard.
Plan out your route on the clever and convenient trip computer, then sink back into your comfortable, supportive driver's seat and take advantage of the steering wheel-mounted controls. The new Kia Rio is designed around the driver, but that doesn't mean it neglects your passengers; they can enjoy music from the RDS radio/CD player, which has Bluetooth® compatibility.
Petrol and CRDi diesel engines are both available and have been fine-tuned to offer a blend of power and economy. Choosing the 1.4-litre petrol model lets you race from 0-60mph in just 11.1 seconds, while the diesel alternatives offer a massive 170Nm of torque. The 1.1-litre CRDi is an amazingly economical unit too, offering 88.3mpg on the combined cycle, and CO2 emissions at a tax-busting 85g/km.
The new Kia Rio takes your welfare very seriously, and it's fitted with the latest safety technology to avoid any accidents. The active safety package, included as standard, features Electronic Stability Control, which works with Brake-Assist System and Vehicle Stability Management to ensure a smooth and steady drive. And, in the event of a collision, a number of airbags are also included.
