Type

Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of Kia Rio was introduced in Australia during 2005.

The left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.

Safety equipment, as tested, not standard on all variants.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment. Side airbags and head-protecting side curtains, as fitted to the tested vehicle, are standard on some variants but are not available on others. Antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) are also standard on some Australian variants and all New Zealand variants. Electronic stability control (ESC) is not available.

An intelligent seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver seat. The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.
