1.4 petrol or 1.5 diesel

Much nicer looking,much larger and faster than a Picanto for only £1000 more.

If you do high mileage the extra £1000 for the diesel might well pay for itself and the diesel really shifts! Also diesel is only £35 road tax.

I think it looks like the Vauxhall Astra, but without the price tag.

7yr warranty now.

Only £1000 extra, lmao, that makes it almost 20% dearer !!!

Also the residual value wont be any more either.
#2
Bloody hell! Are we going to have the entire range of Kia's on here with the scrappage price?

Voted cold as it is not a deal, merely using a voucher as people keep doing with Littlewoods and Very

Petrol or Diesel?!?!

That's about 900 litres of petrol for about 9000miles!

Probably worthwhile only if u do at least 100 miles a day or 35,000 miles per year on the diesel to be worth it. ;-)

Are all diesel car owners drive 35,000 miles a yr?!(private not commercial i mean)

Oh don't forget the higher the mileage the lower the value becomes!
Also diesel need more servicing than a petrol.

For this make of car, after 3 yrs it worth peanuts too!

The 7 yr warranty is just a selling gimmick!

Modern cars will last well over 7 yrs without major problems unless u neglect the services.

Don't forget the 7 yr warranty excludes service and wear and tear!

As this car starts off low price, there is actually less to lose in price. A 3yr old Kia Rio is worth about £2000-3000 in Autotrader, which is a fair price for 3yrs motoring. You would lose alot more from higher priced equivalents.

I worked out that the diesel would save me over £2000 in fuel over 6yrs doing a modest 11500 a year. You wouldn't need to do a ridiculous 35000 miles a year at all.

The service interval for the diesel is 12500, where as for the petrol (as most petrols) is 10000. So again completely wrong on the servicing.

5665 over 7 years makes this a snip at just £15 a week:thumbsup:

Yes a sales ploy, but doesn't mean it's not beneficial.

You really generalise that a car will last 7yrs without a single problem

The warranty is the same as any otrher warranty - they all exclude service and wear and tear

Lol!!!!:-D

Too many car snobs dissing this - it's a cheap new car with a long warranty. If you plant to keep it for the full 7 years (and why wouldn't you if it's still under warranty) then the diesel makes a lot of sense. Cheap motoring for people who just want to get from A to B. Hot!

But it looks nothing like an Astra (well maybe a Mk3 but they were terrible cars!)
#14
Well I LOVE my Rio, went to Glasgow from N Wales and down to Wembley on 1 tank of diesel with some to spare.....
#15
Good price for a terrible car. However its at least one step up from a bicycle

Yawn....... How long did you own yours?

Add £90 a year in Road Taxed saved as well - this can add another £500 or so over say 6yrs.

Parkers guide says 4yrs to break even at 12k miles a year, but doesn't include Road Tax saving, so guestimate 3.5-4yrs. But after that you've saved the £1000 paid and continue to make even more of a saving on the petrol. So if you kept it for the full 7yr warranty you would proberbly pay for the extra £1000 and then make another £1000 saving.

quite tempted by this but would rather a bigger/faster engine dont think i could downgrade that much and would imagine the deal is only on these models whuch is a shame

Don't know what else your looking at, but the 1.5 diesel shifted like the Golf 1.6 TDI I used to have - smoking!

It a powerful engine in a relatively small car

Just waiting for the Kia Sedona mega beast to join the scheme!

It isn't " Dear " it is very good value.;-)

Hey look it's the pretend millionaires who for some reason visit a deal website and are always trying way too hard.

Oh for the good old days of this site without the cretins and the morons.
#26
These Korean made cars are well-made and the warranty is well worth it - I drove Hyundai's for years - doing about 30,000 miles pa - and without a single day off the road. My last Accent lasted 3 years and almost 100,000 miles and never let me down - these Kia's are very similar and equally reliable - the only quibble I have with the new range is the plasticky interior - when I spend all day in my car I want a nice environment but I do find these a little bland and cheap inside - even the cee'd which is the next model up.
#29
Trust me diesels do cost more to look after, screw the service intervals, its the exhaust filters that cost loads. My Hdi is £700 for filter replacement and fluid top up, not to mention possible turbo issues. Still prefer mine to the petrol version though.
Btw before you all go on about seven year this and scrappage deals, just step back and look at it, Kia only make one reasonable looking car and thats the Pro'ceed.

id rather have the panda than the picanto....but i think this might be able to tempt me away from the panda.

That said if we start playing this game of...well the panda is only £500 quid more and the rio is only £500 more than that, we wind up looking at a mercedes S class under the scrappage scheme....
#31
got the basic rio before christmas at 5,495. wasn't too sure about it but cheap and a fair size for me and the wife! looks very nice in black. It'll do the job for a good few years. Ours is only 1.4 but feels very nippy through the gears!

Yawn....... How long did you own yours?


Well i got rid of mine when i qualified as an automotive technician and restored my first E type six years ago :-D

Needless to say as a mode of transport the rio is just above the bicycle. No frills motoring. You get what you pay for. The rio is well overdue for a replacement, at least something like the picanto has a modicum of refinement and 21st century engineering, although the panda is in the same category and is better top to bottom. You pay very little, you get a vehicle engineered and built on a shoestring. Some people are happy with a vehicle that just gets from A to B without exploding and expect nothing more from a car.

If thats you then this is a good car- fair do's. I mean thats all some people will want and honestly i accept that and they would be happy with this car. However If that isnt you, if you require the slightest bit more from a vehicle like quality, or refinement, or not watching the value plummet like a rock as soon as you drive off the forecourt, or God forbid fun, then look elsewhere. Like a three- four year old Focus. You pays ya money...you makes ya choice

Any one buying a Kia should be ashamed for not supporting British industry by buying a car made in the UK first or Europe second.
#34
Pretty big prerequisite for a deal having a no value scrap ready car lying around.

You obviously don't know what you are talking about, some Kia models are made in Europe.
#36
why either of you care about europe is beyond me.

I don't to be honest, I was just pointing out the facts.

Nor do I really care where a car is made, as long as it presents good value for money, which this Rio does, in my book.:thumbsup:

[QUOTE=mikeswrx02]Petrol or Diesel?!?!

How do you work out diesels need more servicing than a petrol? That is a lot of rubbish. My diesel car only needs to be serviced every 30000 miles where as the petrol version needs to be serviced every 20000 miles. So get your facts right.

guv
But with 30% better fuel economy and £35pa tax. The residual value because of that will more than take care of itself.



But guv he's pointing out the petrol rio is only 1k more than the picanto. Your quoting the diesel one is 2K more than the picanto and barely does any more mpg (62 vs 57.6) so with diesel being slightly more if you drove it until it died (or you did) you'd never make the money back!

But granted the rio is a bigger car.

Above all....its a Kia !! hahahaha
