A survey of dealers conducted by the Quto.ru resource showed that Kia Rio is now cheaper than Lada Vesta. For a Korean sedan performed by Prestige with a 1.6-liter engine with a capacity of 123 horsepower and an “automatic”, sellers ask for an average of 2,300,000 rubles – a lot, given that the recommended retail price of this version is 1,700,000 rubles. However, some sellers are ready to “give away” such a car for 2,050,000 rubles.
You can buy Rio for 1.7 million if you forgo a complete set. For example, for 1.7-1.8 million rubles, cars are offered in Luxe and Comfort versions.
But even such an “expensive” Rio is cheaper than Vesta. In mid-August, the cost of Vesta NG from a limited batch of 800 cars reached 3 million rubles. Now prices have dropped, but not enough to make Vesta cheaper than Rio. So, a sedan performed by Luxe Enjoy can really be purchased for 2,000,000, and station wagons (including the Cross version) will cost 400-600 thousand more.
