2018 Kia Rio Ad Shows Small Rides Loom Large

2018 Kia Rio Commercial by Julian Smith “Small Can Do Big” Campaign

The NBA is filled with athletes who are literally larger than life, with many stars measuring well over six feet tall, and some taller than seven feet. It’s an action-packed league with players who have personalities as effervescent as their games, like LeBron James and Stephen Curry, to name a few stars, and the NBA began regular-season play on October 17, 2017. 

You might think that the 2018 Kia Rio, a redesigned subcompact, wouldn’t be able to measure up to all of this excitement, but Kia knows better, as a commercial with the 2018 Rio debuted right along with the NBA season and its LeBron-themed action. The ad, “2018 Kia Rio: The Small Car That Can Do Big Things,” showcases how even something small in size can produce epic results in a hurry. For additional evidence, check out the game of Isaiah Thomas, the five-foot-nine dynamo who averaged 28.9 points per game last season for the Boston Celtics, and who will team up with LeBron in a Cleveland Cavaliers jersey in the 2017-18 season.
