Review: Rio is a More Complete Offering than Previous Years

Published: November 19, 2013

Car Advice has reviewed the Kia Rio, saying:

#8220;The Kia Rio tenaciously clings to a status as the Korean brand’s most popular vehicle despite a more expansive and more impressive line-up than in previous years.

The Rio no longer accounts for one in two Kias sold in Australia as it did in 2008, but it continues to outsell fresher models in the family such as the Cerato small car and Sportage compact SUV.

As with most new-generation Kias these days, the Kia Rio is a far more complete offering than its predecessors.#8221;

The Kia Rio has garnered a lot of praise recently from critics. Have you seen the Rio on the roads? It#8217;s a very attractive little car with a lot to offer.

The Kia Rio near Tinley Park is available in three trims: LX, EX and SX. It#8217;s also available with a 1.6-liter gasoline direct-injection (GDI) four-cylinder with your choice of a a six-speed manual transmission (LX only) or six-speed automatic.

The Kia Rio#8217;s fuel economy rating is 30/36mpg (city/highway) for the sedan and hatchback, and is also the first non-hybrid vehicle to offer the Idle Stop N Go technology. This system turns off the engine while the car is idling to save gas. The engine restarts when the driver releases the brake pedal.

The LX trim has body-color door handles and side mirrors, rear wiper and washer, multi-reflector headlamps and 15-inch steel wheels with 185/65R15 tires.

The Rio 5-door also comes with a standard rear spoiler to improve aerodynamics.

The EX trim adds power door locks with keyless entry and a chrome front grille surround.

The SX trim has standard 17-inch wheels with 205/45R17 tires, fog lamps, LED accent lights and rear combination lamps, dual chrome exhaust tips, power-folding outside heated mirrors with turn signal indicators and, unique for the Rio 5-door, projector headlamps.

Keep Your Chicago Kia Rio#8217;s Wheels Looking Great: Three Tips

Published: November 9, 2013

Have you cleaned your Chicago Kia Rio #8216;s wheels recently?

If the answer is no, we#8217;re not surprised. Many people don#8217;t give much thought to caring for the wheels on their car. However, if you have custom wheels, or you just want to maximize your car#8217;s value, you#8217;ll want to give your wheels a little TLC once in awhile.

It#8217;s not just a matter of keeping your car looking great, though. Over time, the elements can cause wear and tear to your wheels. That#8217;s because they are exposed to grime, bugs, tar, and chemicals used on the roads for controlling the ice on the roads.

They can also become baked with brake dust from friction, which can become hard to remove.

So, how can you keep your wheels looking great? Simple: start with a blast of pressurized water to remove any grime or other substances that are stuck on your tires. This is a good time to use the coin operated car wash, because they have those pressurized wands with water.

If there is a lot of stuck on grime, you may want to use a scrub brush and a little elbow grease. But don#8217;t go overboard and scratch up the finish on your wheels. You just want to remove the grime!

And while we#8217;re on the subject of cleaning your wheels, don#8217;t use household cleaning products or even tire cleaning products on your wheels. If you must use a detergent, use a very gentle one and a mitt to clean your wheels.

Rinse your wheels well to remove any remaining grime or soap, and let them dry. Use a cloth or a mitt to polish them. You may also want to apply a wax based sealant to protect the wheels.

Remember to apply periodically, because over time the sealant will break down.
