Kia reduces emissions on Picanto, Rio and Cee'd (UK)

Kia’s engineers have been fiddling around with the Picanto, Rio, Cee'd and Pro_Cee'd in an attempt to reduce emissions and lower CO2 taxes. The models are now in VED Band B and pollute under 120g/km, meaning a saving of up to £85 a year on tax.

In the Picanto this was achieved by deleting the 5-seat option as all models are now 4-seat versions, reducing the overall weight of the car and in turn reducing CO2 emissions to as low as 117g/km.

The Rio supermini has also had some attention, reducing emissions on the 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine to 119g/km.

Finally, Kia’s engineers adjusted the standard output of the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine available in the new Cee’d and Pro_Cee’d models that now emits 119g/km, thus taking it into Band B meaning drivers will pay just £35 VED, a tax saving of £85 from the previous £120 a year.
