Design

Made you look.

Rio 5-door’s aggressive redesigned front and rear-end styling, coupe-like roofline and muscular rear flanks express a sense of urgency, command and movement. Available projection headlights, fog lights and LED taillights enhance both visibility and styling dynamics.

Design

Standout design.

The Rio 5-door features available 17-inch alloy wheels with a sporty, performance-inspired look. Standout luxury features such as power-folding sideview mirrors with signal repeaters, LED daytime running lights and LED taillights are also available.

Comfort

Very hands-on.

You take a hands-on approach to everything you do. Kia's designers took that to heart when they laid out Rio's sporty cockpit. The controls are engineered for ergonomic efficiency – in other words, they're easy to use. And an available premium soft-touch dash adds to the tactile experience. No wonder you can't wait to get your hands on a 2016 Rio 5-door – build yours now.

Comfort

Ideal comfort and convenience.

There’s no need to fumble for your keys when you have the luxury of the available Smart Key and push-button start. The available heated steering wheel and heated front seats provide ultimate comfort for cold Canadian winters, while the available power sunroof lets you enjoy the pleasure of open-air driving, adding to the sense of roominess.

ECO efficiency.

Rio 5-door also has available Idle Stop & Go technology that automatically shuts off the engine when the vehicle is stopped. When you lift your foot off the brake pedal, the engine restarts automatically. This also helps enhance fuel economy.

Safety

Safety all-around.

In engineering Rio 5-door, Kia placed as high a priority on safety as you do. The list of standard safety features is extensive – from a structural framework that absorbs impact forces in both frontal and side-on collisions to a range of active and passive safety measures, including advanced technologies such as a brake assist system, electronic stability control and a vehicle stability management system helping to enhance driver control. For an all-round approach to safety1.

Safety

The pleasure of safety.

Every Rio comes standard with 6 airbags and special onboard sensors that measure the severity of a crash impact and determine whether the front seat occupants are wearing their seat belts. Within milliseconds, this information is used to determine and trigger an optimal level of airbag inflation.

Safety

Eyes behind you.

Rio’s available rearview camera system makes parking safer and easier by showing you a wide-angle view of the area behind you. It activates automatically whenever you shift into reverse1.
