Premier Rio Multi-Jet reviewed - Change of heart

They say markets are not created, but identified, and the Premier Rio seems like it intends to live up to that formula.

The Rio is placed bang in the centre of the transition from car to SUV. It’s got the compactness of a hatch and the ground clearance of something more substantial. Although comparing it to something like the Renault Duster is akin to pitting chalk against crayon, it would be apt to say that the Rio resides in a realm that hasn’t been entered into by any other manufacturer as yet. Possibly India’s first compact SUV, the Rio now gets a contemporary diesel engine.

There isn’t much differentiating this Rio from its siblings, apart from the fact that it is now powered by the 1.3 litre, 71 bhp Multijet diesel motor sourced from Fiat (more on that later), as compared to the version propelled by the Peugeot TUD5 diesel. That little fact, however, brings about stark changes in the Rio’s enthusiasm for getting things done.
