Explore Rio

  • Made for SHINING BRIGHT

    Available LED positioning lights and LED taillights make sure you’ll look great and be noticed, even in the dark, while available fog lights make sure you see as much possible.

    Close
  • Made for VISIBILITY

    Every Rio comes prepared for the winter with standard heated and powered sideview mirrors. For your convenience, power folding sideview mirrors with integrated LED turn signal repeaters are also available.

    Close
  • Made for LIVING LARGE

    The Rio 5-door offers a convenient and versatile storage solution with over 36L of extra cargo space in its sporty hatchback design. It also comes with a standard cargo cover, so you can keep valuable items out of sight.

    Close
  • Made for FORWARD THINKING

    Aggressive front and rear-end styling is accentuated by a sweeping, coupe-like roofline that comes in two distinct styles – the versatile Rio 5-door and the sleek Rio sedan. Both have an equally powerful stance, especially when equipped with available 17” alloy wheels.

  • Made for FEELING AT HOME

    With a driver centric, sporty cockpit and conveniently placed controls, the Rio instantly feels like a perfect fit. With available leather seats, soft touch accents and available automatic climate control, you’ll never want to take it off.

    Close
  • Made for FRESH AIR

    The spacious Rio feels even roomier with an available power sunroof. Who’d have thought you could enjoy the pleasure of open-air driving in such a compact car?

    Close
  • Made for SIMPLICITY

    With an available Smart key, you’ll enjoy the luxury of having a push-button start ignition, which means you’ll never have to fumble for your keys again.

    Close
  • Made for MORE

    Thanks to a deceptively roomy cabin, you and your passengers will always enjoy a comfortable ride in the Rio. Standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats add even more cargo flexibility in both the sedan and 5-door versions.

    Close
  • Made for CONNECTING

    The available UVO entertainment system provides hands-free, voice-activated control of your music sources and cell phone. Stream wirelessly via available Bluetooth®1 or connect a USB drive, iPod®5 or other digital music player directly to the audio system via standard AUX and USB audio ports.

    Close

Made for EFFICIENT POWER

Power is there whenever you need it with Kia’s fuel efficient, 137-hp, 1.6-litre gasoline direct injection (GDI) 4-cylinder engine. The Rio combines quick acceleration, smoothness and economy with an available 6-speed automatic transmission and steering wheel mounted paddle shifters.

Made for PRECISION HANDLING

The Rio features an available sport-tuned suspension that, with its quick-ratio electric power steering, gives you great ride quality and ultra-responsive handling.

Made for REASSURANCE

Drive with peace of mind knowing that standard dual advanced front, side impact and side curtain airbags are there to protect you.

Made for CONTROL

Maintain the course and stay safe behind the wheel with advanced technologies like Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management, Hill Assist Control, and more.
