General Introduction

Before we dive into the Rio’ details such as pricing, specs and reviews, let’s take a look at a general introduction of this highly-popular sub-compact car.

The entry-level car offered by Kia in the US is the Rio. It comes in a pair of different body styles: the Rio 4-door sedan and the Rio 5-door hatchback.

No matter which of the two you opt for, you can be sure to receive a ton of standard features with your purchase. With a great looking design and a slew of technology on board, the Rio offers excellent value for your money.

The latest version of the Rio comes with a number of enhancements, including changes to the engine and body designed to improve aerodynamics.

There is also now a smart key that has a stylish folding key as part of the package. Inside, you will find a new leather-wrapped steering wheel and a new water temperature gauge.

In the US, the Rio comes equipped with a 1-6-liter GDI 4-cylinder with the option of a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission.

The engine delivers a peppy 138 horses and comes with a fuel economy rating of 27/37 mpg city/highway for both the sedan and hatchback models. If you go with the optional ECO package, those numbers then become 28/37 mpg city/highway.

NOTE: the mpg figures reffer to the 2014 model year Rio!
