The Kia Rio Scavenger Hunt is an interesting event involving 2 stars: Christina Milan and the Kia Rio. Two pairs of best friends are sent on a scavenger hunt through L.A. to find Christina Milan. Each pair is equipped with their very own Kia Rio, giving them the power of navigation and bluetooth to find their target.
The Kia Rio Scavenger hunt was pretty cool to watch. The competitors were able to use the various techy features built into the Kia Rio to solve the clues and eventually reach Christina herself. They took advantage of features like the USB jack to load up an audio clip with Holoplot immersive sound and the rear camera display to get a shot of one of the clues.The Kia Rio also features navigation and Bluetooth, two of the coolest features in my opinion. Definitley a plus for safe and hands-free calling while driving.
They first had to use a cube to answer trivia question about LA. The next challeng was to find a hidden Christina CD at Amoeba Records. Using the USB jack, they were directed to find the exact number of palm trees near Rodeo Drive. Next, probably the hardest challeng, was basically a hotdog eating contest at one of the most popular hotdog stands in LA, where they were directed to their next clue tucked into the roomy trunk of the Kia. This final clue led the teams directly to Christina in her hotel.
Overall, I'd say the UVO Technology is the coolest feature of the Kia Rio. This allows you to basically control the car with your voice and keep your eyes on the road. For more info on the Kia Rio, check out the Rio Explorer Page.
