Having won numerous international awards, including several Car of the Year titles, the successful Kia Rio concept was originally launched in 2000. Kia Rio DC and JB models remained in production 2000-2005 and 2005-2011 respectively. But the lighting technology used in all of these cars is more than 15 years old today.
The factory-fitted halogen headlight features an H4 reflector that produces an average light beam even when new. In many cases, its light output has been further compromised as bulb heat and general ageing cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Kia Rio is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H4 halogen headlights, there are upgrade kits that will fit inside your existing headlights.
These complete retrofit kits not only provide you with superior brightness and durability; they are also more affordable than average Kia Rio xenon headlights with bulbs and ballasts, and since all components are brand new, they come with a 2-year warranty. Additional benefits over OEM headlights include Canbus-proof designs and effortless halogen-to-xenon conversions. What’s more, the levelling systems will work without any adjustments to the headlight connectors, and you can use any ballasts that you might already own to save further on xenon upgrades.
No matter which retrofit upgrade kit you pick, you will improve the light output considerably, making for safer and more enjoyable driving. And, of course, your Kia Rio will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
