2017 Kia Rio Sedan NO Airbags Crash Test – Video
The Kia Rio Sedan, manufactured in Korea, also disappointed with zero stars in adult occupant protection and one star for child occupant protection. However, the car offers a stable structure in the frontal crash and good structural development for side impact. The manufacturer offers the Rio Sedan without airbags and no ABS in the basic version. The lack of airbags and lack of good performing seatbelts explain the poor results in both frontal occupants’ heads and chests.Kia recently announced to Latin NCAP that the new Picanto and new Rio will offer at least a driver airbag in all new Latin American versions. Kia has committed to sponsor the New Kia Rio Sedan to be tested by Latin NCAP to show the safety progress in the new model, though without a passenger airbag it is still likely to do badly if the new car performs like the one recently tested by Latin NCAP.The Kia scored only one star for child occupant protection as it did not offer ISOFIX anchorages or 3 point belts in all rear seating positions.
