    Default Spotted: Kia Rio Sport-Pac

    Ok, first I'll apologize for making a spotted thread with no pics, but has anyone seen this?

    On crowchild this evening just south of the turnoff to university drive, this thing goes by in the opposite lane:



    I didnt know they actually went into production, they arent on the Kia web site that I can find, but I saw it with my own eyes

    Kia STi!?! Looks just like an STi with new front design... scoop and wing and stuff.

    The only thing in common is the Kia runs 13's in the 0-60 and STi does 1/4 mile.

    saw one of those up near coral springs as well... the driver was looking at me/my car as he was turning. Kind of a dirty look

    I think they figure they'll sell a ton of them - and for KIA that's what they need right now because nothing in their lineup is really special.

    The car is a regular rio with a few add ons. It costs a thousand dollars more than a regular rio and you get a tach, mp3 player, the hood scoop, fog lights, the spoiler, and the wheels and tires. You also get the factory tires and rims for winter.

    I saw one today, this guy was parked outside Wal-Mart waiting for his girl or something, didn't have the gold rims though. And IMO it's easy to tell the difference between it and the STi ( I mean it's obvious by looking).
