Nice...I've only ever seen 2 others on the road besides mine in the last 16K miles of driving.


Enjoy it!

Well thank the lord there all gone now

Hope you have a great time with it.







Don't you like the Graphite model? It's much better than the basic Rio.



Les-t, make sure it doesn't pull left when you get it and let us know your mpg!

I love them all. I was only being sarcastic. I am looking forward to this new model next year especially the diesel with 140 ponies.

I wonder if it'll still be in the C tax band with the CO2 per km?

I had wondered that.

£35 to £90.

What happened to a £60 bracket ?

So the government wants everyone to drive low emission cars, which is fine.
But where is the government going to get all of this lost tax revenue if we are all paying £30 and less a year ?

By sticking more tax on fuel...and with the 20% VAT coming in 1st Jan, we'll be paying yet more tax on tax, grrrr!

No joke. I think it was in autoexpress. New model of Rio out in 2011/2012 and then in 2012 a scorcher of a diesel one with 140hp. Hatchback and saloon models.

yes, 140bhp would be really nice..... if the weight stayed the same or the new Rio lost some weight.

Somehow I doubt it and the BHP per ton would hopefully be the same as the current Rio (90BHP per ton).

I`ve had 3 models,Rio, Ceed and now a Soul, imo the Rio diesel was the best drive of them all. I`ll certainly have a serious look at the new model when it appears.

With a remap you can get 140 BHP out of the 1.5 Rio.

I would not want to remap a Rio Diesel that high BHP.
I could be wrong but is the gearbox and transmission only rated to 135BHP ?

I did read on some Croatian Rio owners forum that the Rio Gearbo was rated to this.
