Pros : Fuel efficient, affordable price.

Cons : Not yet found.

Look and Style Last Sunday, took the test drive of new Premier Rio SUV. I was so much impressed by the design and handling of this compact SUV that I have booked it. There is a waiting period of seven days. The petrol variant of Premier Rio has the similar features as of its diesel variant. Comfort The interior of new Premier Rio petrol is impressive and flexible that offer enough head and leg space. The headroom and leg-room gives a comfortable riding experience. The Premier Rio have well proportionate fabric upholstery seat and center console which looks sober and elegant. Pickup Premier Rio accelerates to 100 km/h from nil in a short time span. The new Rio Petrol has a potential to reach top speed of 147 km/h. Mileage I hope the Premier Motors will keep their words. As per ARAI the new Rio petrol has a fuel economy of 16 kmpl which made it the most fuel efficient SUV in the segment. Best Features Although the new Premier Rio has been launched in petrol variant but I am very much impressed by the fuel efficiency of the SUV. It is one of the most fuel efficient SUV in the segment. Along with the mileage, the SUV has comfortable and spacious interiors. The most eye catching feature of Premier Rio petrol SUV is its price, I think its quite difficult to get a SUV at such low cost. Needs to improve Its too early to figure out the areas of improvement in Premier Rio SUV. Overall Experience Call this a bad timing, Premier Rio has launched on the day when there is a hike in petrol price. I am very skeptical that petrol price should not increase any more since I have booked the SUV. Leaving behind the petrol price, the overall performance and handling of the SUV is brilliant and I suggest that one should go for it. In my opinion it is a nice SUV at an affordable price.
