Welcome to the third feature in our newest reporting series*. Our Hands-On Tech, or HOT, Reports take you through the top-spec connectivity features offered by manufacturers in detail and look to benchmark the connectivity functionality based on various test criteria. This month we take a closer look at the Kia Rio, with a grade 3 trim spec. It's the first car in our series to feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so we've also included an in-depth review of these applications.
