i have to say i'd be interested in a rio if one of two things would happen.

1: aftermarket support.

2: an upgraded engine option, 96hp is fine if your driving a honda insight.

I test drove a new Rio Cinco. It didn't have enough get up and go for me. I moved up pricewise to the Spectra, and am happy with that.

Did see a new Rio with Enkei wheels a few days ago that looked pretty nice.

What do we know about the development of the Rio 1.5 liter engine? I know that the 1.8 liter engine in the Spectra is a Mazda deriative, and I would think that you would want to tune it in ways that have been proven to be successful in Mazda 1.8 liters.

Where does the 1.5 liter come from? Did Kia develop it on its own, or did it buy it from Mazda, Ford or Hyundai?
