I just order my Kia Rio SX Navigation 2013. I choose red with beige interior. Nothing in stock so 2-3 month for delivery. I'll keep you inform.

For other canadian, do you have "Kia Protect" warranty? Do you think the base warranty is OK?

Congrats. You're gonna love it!

I did not get Kia Protect. I chose to get extended warranty with the dealer. Gave me an extra 3 years and 100K km. So, I am now covered bumper to bumper for 8 years or 200K km. That worked out for me since I do a lot more mileage so the 8 years is not really a concern. The price was substantially less than Kia Protect.

Flem félicitations. Super bel achat. Rouge et beige. You'll love the car. The "+" really outweigh the "-". And you'll have the top model. Best choice. I would have gone this way but I was told the SX had a rougher ride. You'll tell me. For now, My EX UVO fills the bill in that department. The Rio red is Wow. Now be patient. I have not been...
Salut et à +

Hmm, I was told the excatly same thing. I ordered a Caramel yellow with beige interior back in april, and last month the dealer rang me up and told me it wasnt possible. I could only choose between; black, brown and grey. Needless to say I was rather disappointed, but agreed to go for the regular black interior. Did they ran out of white cows or what?

My dealer inform me some time ago that there is no more beige interior with the red color. The kia.ca site is now update for 2013 model and it's only black interior for the red.

I'm still waiting for my car and the dealer do not have any date.
there was a revision of the complete KIA lineup from dealer feedback and sales trends, they reduced overall trim and colour configuration complexity. This all went into effect with the July production.

I receive a call from the dealer today... bad news, my order was "refuse" by Kia. So there is no red 4-doors SX-Navi available... They offer me a deep blue, I will go tomorrow to see that.

I was in the same boat. I wanted Red but my dealer told me it might take 3 or 4 months to get it. So, I choose white, got it in 3 weeks from a dealer trade and couldn't be happier. Have received many compliments more so with the addition of tinted windows.

I went to the dealership yesterday.

He had ordered a red with beige interior. As I already said, some days later, the system rejected the beige interior (new color chart 2013) and it was black.

Upon receipt of his orders, he called me because my vehicle was not there, Kia had refused this production, the dealer has, in turn, lost its allocation. Production of the SX model with navigation is limited. The only SX with navigation available were deep blue & chestnut brown in the 4-door and white in 5 door. The next orders are for the 2014 model only (no date).

From the beginning I was not sure of the color and it is my daughter who made me choose red. I looked at the deep blue model (with beige interior) and I liked it. I will take possession of my Navi Rio SX 2013 next Tuesday.

For your information the production date was June 2012 and I have the "paddle shifter".

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I've ordered a Red 2013 KIA Rio5 SX with a beige interior in June, but I have not heard from the dealership since. Before I contact them, I would like to ask you: When you say that you will take possession of a "deep blue model (with beige interior)" does it mean that there are some 2013 Kias with beige interiors available, but not with a red exterior? If you could please clarify it would be very much appreciated. (BTW, congrats for the new car!)

Flem, I'm currently waiting for a 2013 SX hatch. Can you confirm to me whether or not the sedan (and possibly the hatch as well) with paddle shifters still have the heated steering? Given our Quebec winters, I would get much more use from that instead of the paddles. It would be a shame to have to lose that. 2013 SX config page at Kia.ca still lists the heating steering, but i've been hearing conflicting reports.

I'm not for sure, but have heard that paddles replace heated wheel....

Hello, there is still beige interior but not for the red color. Kia.ca is now update for the colors.
