Premier Rio Lx Description
A few years back, Premier made an entry into the Light Commercial Vehicle segment with its mini pick-up Roadstar and Sigma, a van that can be used for commercial purposes. The Rio Lx is the addition from Premier. The impressive featuresthatcomplement the Premier Rio Lx Diesel elicit admiration from every automobile enthusiast. The Rio Lx Diesel is undoubtedly one of the best in its segment.
Premier Rio Lx ExteriorThe Rio looks very similar to the Daihatsu Terios. The immaculate paint finish and the alloy wheels on the Rio Lx complement the rugged yet elegant looks of the SUV. The 215/70415 tyres further enhance the robustness of the vehicle. The headlights of the Rio Lx are also powerful enough to make night driving a pleasure. The swept back design of the headlamps augments the refined looks of the Rio.
Premier Rio Lx InteriorThe boot space is sufficient in the Rio but legroom is an issue which Premier has to take care of. Premier has used hard plastic inside the Rio which appears to be very flimsy. It definitely could have been better. Additionally, the seat cushioning is not impressive. The 4 speaker CD player is a welcome addition though, very ideal for that long drive. Another excellent feature that the Rio sports is the electrically adjustable mirror which is sleek and stylish.
Premier Rio Lx Engine & TransmissionThe 1489cc engine which the Premier Rio uses is extremely powerful and does not compromise on fuel economy. The Peugeot TUD5 engine technology powers the Rio. It should be noted that an earlier version of the same engine used to power Maruti Esteem and Zen. The cylinder and engine block are shipped straight from France. The 1.5 litre 4 cylinder engine generates a peak power of 64.8ps @ 4000rpm along with a maximum torque of 152Nm @ 2250 to 3000rpm. The transmission type is manual and uses a 5 speed gearbox. The SUV uses a Zotye gearbox.
Premier Rio Lx MileageDepending on road conditions, the Premier Rio Lx gives a mileage of 16kmpl on highways and 13.5 when driven within the city.
Premier Rio Lx Braking and SafetyThe anti-lock braking system in the Premier Rio is very efficient and ensures safe driving even on slippery roads. Central locking is an additional safety feature in the Rio Lx. However, the absence is airbags is a huge safety concern. Furthermore, the Premier Rio lacks a parking sensor as well which is definitely a drawback of the SUV.
Premier Rio Lx Performance and HandlingThe Rio Lx performs extremely well and displays a remarkable element of stability and control. The high ground clearance of the SUV also makes it ideal for Indian roads.
Premier Rio Lx VerdictThe Premier Rio Lx is undoubtedly a high value for money SUV, offers everything that a customer aspires for. However, Premier should revamp the interiors of the Rio Lx where there is adequate scope of improvement.
