Like most of our awards, this category was decided by feedback collated from a survey of more than 40,000 car owners, all of whom rated their car in 16 key areas. That means an Auto Trader New Car Award is a real stamp of approval from people that live with the car day-in, day-out, and it makes each winner a true consumer champion.
Here are just a few of the comments owners made about the Rio…
- “It is cheap and easy to run.”
- “Steering is light and positive, with reasonable road feedback (for electric power steering). Easy to hold the line at speed.”
- “I like the design and reliability of the car.”
