Quick overview about Premier Rio
Premier is one of the oldest brands present in Indian automobile industry and throughout the time it has reinvented itself. And this time it has came up with new affordable urban compact SUV named RIO
Rio was refreshed in 2012 with minor tweaks in styling. It is a compact SUV which measures under sub 4 meter category, from front it looks very much narrow with only 1570mm width because it was designed to comply with Japanese Kei car requirement
As you open the doors to step inside you will feel that you have to crawl inside as Kei car’s point of view, but actually you will walk inside as doors open wide. The interiors have got two tone arrangement of gray and beige
Engine & Transmission:
Rio has got 3 engine option- 1st Mpfi 1.2lts petrol producing 76.6 bhp @ 5800rpm and 103 NM of Torque @ 3500-4250 rpm, 2nd is 1.5lts direct injection Diesel engine with turbocharger producing 65 bhp @ 4000rpm and 152 NM of Torque @ 2250-3000 rpm, and the 3rd one is Multijet 1.3lts Crdi diesel sourced from FIAT with turbocharger and intercooler producing 72 bhp @ 4000rpm and 183 NM of Torque @ 1800-2400 rpm. Out of all these option the 1.3lts CRDI engine is the most efficient and powerful, The transmission is standard 5-speed manual in all 3
The mileage figure claimed provided by ARAI- CRDi4 engine is-23.75 KMPL, Di engine- 20kmpl and the petrol engine gives -15kmpl
Braking and Safety:
Rio is Equipped with Antilock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake force assistance (EBD) as standard in all variants. The braking system is equipped with ventilated disc brakes in the front and Drum brakes at the rear, which offers adequate braking force with help from ABS
Performance and Handling:
Rio uses Independent McPherson Strut type shock absorber front suspension with anti-roll bar and 5-Link type suspension with anti-roll bars at rear. The suspension are tweaked to softer settings which offers a stable ride at low speeds but as the speed increases on Indian roads it gives a feeling of being thrown away
What do we think about:
Rio with Fiat’s Multijet diesel engine is only the best RiO to buy. However there are quite a few drawbacks, which can’t be ignored
Mahindra Quanto- have got proven Mahindra Quality and Service, less priced, more powerful 1.5 lts -100bhp CRDi diesel engine. Mahindra Bolero- proven Mahindra Quality and Service, less priced, more powerful 2.5 lts -72bhp MDI turbocharged Diesel Engine
