2010 Kia Picanto Domino & Rio Domino


It seems like Kia is really into unveiling special editions these days. The second one unveiled today is a new Domino special edition, available for both the Picanto and the Rio .

The new Domino edition is available, you guessed it, in white or optional black metallic. Depending on the color you chose for the exterior, the body-colored bumpers, mirrors, and door handles can be offset with an optional contrasting black or white domino effect stripe.

Next to this the new edition gets 14-inch alloy wheels (Rio) and 14-inch wheel trims (Picanto), air-conditioning, iPod connectivity, remote central locking, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear-knob. The Rio Domino also gets rear electric windows added to the list of standard equipment.

The new edition is available with either a 1.4-liter petrol or 1.5-liter CRDi diesel engine and is priced at £7,995 for Picanto and from £9,295 for the Rio version.

Press release after the jump.

Awesome! It doesn’t have lots of style and design, but it still looks very stunning and cool for me. Moreover, I have to agree that it is already looks great on its body paint. I’m just only curious on its interior.

Wow! A very appealing car, it was so nice to see a simple but very appealing car, Picanto Domino and Rio Domino is really awesome car but I bet this one is a bit too pricey. Nice car.

hmm. So, you’re not convince that this car brand is already established? KIA Soul would be their best performing car. And I think it would be better choose the latter compare to this one.

I’m not really into Korean cars for I think they are not reliable for they are still starting to build their name in this industry. I want to see a more unique features from them.

Kia has a lot of improvements today. I admired their patience and hard work. Keep it up! Let us encourage other car manufacturer to produce such kind of great innovation on their units.

I think Kia’s model range here in the UK is really strong - OK they’re not the most exciting cars but the Cee’d is a very strong Focus competitor, the Soul is really funky and the Sorento is a very capable 4X4 for a great price. The warranty is excellent as well.

I totally forgot to mention that I wanted more power and the 5-speed auto might bump up the MPG’s, and I did not know they changed a few things. I love the houndstooth fabric I hope they don’t change that.

both of them looks great, but to be honest i like the Kia Ceed more..
