KIA RIO 2018 hatchback has been displayed in KIA lucky motors showroom Pakistan as big three will watch in silence or not. KIA RIO estimated price range of 1.0l variant is 1.4 million and car is assembled in Korea. The price range of RIO indicates that it will give tough competition to Suzuki, Honda and Toyota.
Manufacturing of KIA RIO will start from the next year in Pakistan. KIA RIO 2018 is the 4th generation front engine, four wheel drive subcompact hatchback car. The update in 2018 model is its sprotier look and bigger exteriuor dimension then the 3rd generation.
KIA RIO will be available in three variants EX, S and LS. If we check its market value more than 4,00,000 units of KIA RIO was sold in 2015-2016 which shows that its a successful model. There are many rumors about this car price and its features but the expected price of this car will be 1.5 million and we are hoping that this price range will disturb the big three car companies operating in Pakistan.
Let us tell you some of its features what a buyer will get in this car.

As we mentioned the expected price of KIA RIO will definetly give some serious competition to Suzuki Swift, update model Suzuki Cultus and Suzuki’s Sedan the Ciaz, Corolla and HONDA City a run towards money. Design wise KIA RIO does’nt look like a compact car it really shows impression of a sedan.
Also KIA RIO will also afftect the market value of imported Japanese cars in Pakistan. As they are refurbished ones, so why don’t buy a brand new KIA RIO which has some great features. But we believe the big three will not allow the car to enter in the market with this price range and if KIA does come may be its some features will be removed when manufactured in Pakistan.
The KIA Lucky motors web is currently showing that the car will have PDW-R, ABS and 6-Airbags while there is also a disclaimer that “Actual Specifiactions may varyaccording to the region”.
