Experience the Kia Rio via Interactive Apps January 31st, 2012
In today’s digital era, the traditional car brochure just doesn’t cut it anymore. Not only is paper so passé and static, it’s also not very green. Aside from encouraging an actual test drive, Kia has been pioneering new and stimulating ways to experience its vehicles from the convenience of your mobile or computing devices.
Today on Kia-Buzz we’re going to be spotlighting some informative and amusing apps for the All-new Kia Rio.
All-new Kia Rio iPad App:
This app’s CGI intro looks like a scene from Inception, and earns it some extra cool points in our book. In addition, it has absolutely everything you need to know about the Kia Rio. Not only can you find the most detailed technical specs such as size, weight and fuel consumption, but you can also look at all things Rio, including commercials and a detailed profile of its designer Peter Schreyer, Chief Design Officer at Kia. Feel free to spin it around for a 360-degree view, experiment with exterior styling options and tryout some interactive features.
There are too many features to list in this blog post, but don’t take our word for it. Download the app for yourself and take it for a test spin by simply searching for “Kia Rio” on the Apple App Store.
Rio Beat Star Facebook App:
Rio Beat Star– Don’t get us started on how addictive this game has become at Kia’s Global Headquarters. Our boss had to tell us to chill out one day, but we later busted him playing it himself.
Rio Beat Star is a rhythm game that you control through your keyboard and quick hand-eye coordination. If you want to score big points, we recommend playing different game modes available in the options menu. Be sure to tryout the “hidden” mode. It’s by far the hardest mode that requires extraordinary timing and fast fingers.
Be sure to look out for our furry friends from the 20th Century Fox animation Rio: The Movie who occasionally pop out to say hello. To encourage the spirit of competition, the game keeps track of your score allowing you to see how you stack up against other players from across the globe. Try it out and see how you rank!
