Maximal torque RPM
Such a big difference stems from the fact that both vehicles have different engines.

The engine capacity of the Volkswagen Golf VI Variant is by 351 cc greater than the Kia. For this reason the Kia Rio III Hatchback 3d will consume less fuel, but, the engine of the Volkswagen will be of better performance, working more smoothly and more durable.
Maximum load capacity
The Volkswagen Golf VI is 490 mm longer than the Kia Rio III Hatchback 3d 1.2 DOHC CVVT 85HP manual. The length of the car is important when it comes to travelling comfort and space in the boot. The Volkswagen Golf VI probably will be offering to it's passangers more space for legs.

Number of doors
It is beyond the question that the five-door Volkswagen Golf VI is more usable and if you frequently drive with more than one people then you should not have any doubts which one to choose. The strongest point of a five-door car is that it’s not only easier for passengers to climb into the rear seats but it’s also easier to put luggage and cargo into the car when the rear seats are folded down. However, three-door cars like the Kia Rio III very often look more dynamic and sporty and for young drivers who don’t often have passengers in the back seat the Kia Rio III might be better one, the more so for being a little bit cheaper than the same model with more doors.
The higher a car is, the the more convenient is a boarding it and greater possibility of carrying massive amount of thinks to it. The difference between these two cars at the level of 4 percent to the advantage of the Volkswagen Golf VI is small and should not be really noticeable.
