KIA Motors Mzansi has spiced up its current Rio offering with the introduction of a 6-speed auto transmission to the line-up.

KIA has dropped the archaic 4-speed auto transmission for a smoother and more modern 6-speed auto transmission on the 74kW/135Nm 1.4litre engine that now delivers a 0-100km/h sprint in 12.9sec (from 13.2sec) and an increased top speed of 175km/h (from 166km/h).

Besides the updated transmission, the KIA Rio range remains untouched, with the entry model being the LX, a mid-high spec EX and the high-spec being the TEC.
