    True, it’s because of the very low numbers of the previous Rio. Kia had sold 3 Rio’s in the first 7 months of this year, thus the publishers decided to exclude the Rio. They will likely fix that soon.

    The Opel Agila, Suzuki Splash and Nissan Micra (1.2 DIG-S) are gaining because of the addition of road tax-free versions. By the way, the Ford Ka is the only A-segment city car in the Top 100 without a road tax-free version.
    The only B-segment hatchbacks in the Top 100 without tax-free versions are the Suzuki Swift, Peugeot 207, Mini, Mitsubishi Colt, Hyundai i20 and Chevrolet Aveo (however, a tax-free 1.3 diesel version have already been announced and will be available from January next year).

  2. @ Matt: you forgot the Kia Rio in the list (which performs outstanding!):
    KIA OVERIGE 755 (YTD 1.164)
    Overige = other, those are all Rio’s

    1. Hey Rutger thanks! I was wondering about that, it’s weird that RAI Vereniging doesn’t specify it’s the Rio… Will change my article shortly.
      cheers
      Matt
