Kia Rio 2019 review: GT-Line – CarsGuide

But, when it came to the experience behind the wheel, the car was hampered by a less-than impressive engine and lacklustre transmission options.’

So, has Kia finally explored the Rio’s potential? Is the GT-Line as hot as it looks? Read on to find out.

Fittingly, the Rio GT-Line looks like an angry little car with a lot to prove. In this ‘Mighty Yellow’ (love it) shade, it looks like it’s ready to hunt down cars in the segment that own the whole ‘fun’ thing.’

Specifically, it looks ready to take on the Suzuki Swift Sport with its flared side-skirts, black highlights adorning the front and rear bumpers. And the little gloss-black highlight spoiler round the back which looks like a nod to its distant cousin, the i30N. There’s even a gloss-black highlight diffuser and a peppy-looking dual-exhaust.

Concussion researchers put spotlight on rodeo riders

Rodeo riders would benefit from a’return-to-play (RTP) protocol such as those being introduced into other high-contact sports, US concussion researchers say.

After reviewing literature on concussion in rodeo,’US researchers Alissa Wicklund, Shayla Foster and Ashley Roy found that, despite a high incidence of injury in their sport, rodeo athletes were underrepresented in research. No standard post-concussion protocols are available across rodeo organizations for evaluating fitness to return to competition.

They also pointed out the ‘unique barriers’ that complicated the management and treatment of rodeo athletes with concussion, such as ‘the solo nature of the sport, lack of consistent access to health care professionals, and athletic conditioning that often occurs outside of a traditional gym-based exercise regimen’.
