With their own start-stop technology called Idle Stop and Go (ISG), Kia Motors presents a lineup of vehicles that eco-minded consumers may take a second look at. With the ISG technology and fuel economy of up to 40 miles per gallon (mpg), the all-new Rio five-door hatchback and its sedan sibling deliver eye-catching design and the latest technologies, including navigation, push-button start and Kia’s UVO voice-activated infotainment system. The Rio also has a 1.6-liter GDI four-cylinder with the option of either a six-speed manual transmission (LX only) or efficient six-speed automatic.
As one of only two vehicles in the subcompact segment to offer a Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine, Rio provides an inviting combination of power and fuel efficiency. Also new for Rio for 2012 and emphasizing the Earth-friendly theme, 85 percent of the Rio’s materials are recyclable at the end of its life span. Additionally, the refreshed 2012 Soul offers more power and improved fuel economy, with up to 35 miles per gallon on the highway.
With these fuel-saving features, car buyers are expected not to idle or stop before going to check them out. For more information, visit www.kia.com.
