I totally disagree. I know that if a 2.0 turbo was available for the Rio I, for one, would have been all over it.a 2 liter turbo in our cars would be stupid. maybe you could do it in your garage but Kia wouldn't sell very many units. the Rio is a good economy car and that's it.
I think KIA needs to work on a more european suspension and steering system before trying to fit the Rio with a turbo. Right now 138HP is borderline high for the current Rio suspension.Wondering since they have a decent engine like this if it will ever make it into one of their lighter more aerodynamic cars instead of just the larger Optima or their SUVs?
