Top Gear Philippines

Attention Thomasians, or well, at least those with valid driver's licenses: The Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC)--Kia's official Philippine distributor--is bringing the all-new Kia Rio to the University of Santo Tomas, giving you guys the opportunity to be the first to try it.

The Korean carmaker's recently launched subcompact hatchback will be on campus tomorrow, May 27, as part of its Kia On Tour roadshow. Also tagging along will be the company's best-selling Picanto mini city hatchback. If anything, it's a chance for people in the area to check out two of the best products Kia has to offer.

CAC says that the all-new Rio and the Picanto should feel right at home at the event, on account of their unique tiger-nose front grille designs. So, tiger-nose grille and the home of the UST Growling Tigers--connect the dots and voila!

You can catch the two cars at the UST grandstand. We have seen the latest Rio in the metal, and we have to say it's quite the eye-catcher. Again, the event lasts only for a day, so drop by if you have the time.
