After looking at the Specifications of the 1.5L Diesel Rio I got me thinking - is this the most powerful diesel in the supermini segment.

So I looked on parkers web site and compared most of the well known supermini cars with diesel engines 1.5L and below.

To my surprise its only Renault that come close (106BHP) with their 1.5DCI engines in cars like the Megane.

Vauxhall only beat it with their 1.7L engines in the Corsa (the 1.3L is 80Bhp)
Ford do not come close even on their 1.6L Diesel engines.

So why don't Kia pick up on this and market this ?

If anyone knows of a supermini that develops more BHP than the RIO then please advise.
