Get More Power: See why Kia is introducing a performance-oriented lineup
For the newest generation Rio, Kia has played up the subcompact car’s strengths. This includes making the vehicle’s already stylish design even more so, creating a more enjoyable driving experience, and adding some of the most advanced safety features in its class.
Kia’s design centers in Germany and California worked together to create an exterior that has a beautiful balance of sculpted lines and rounded curves, making the car more distinctive and athletic. Inside the Rio’s cabin, this sophisticated design continues, offering a driver-oriented set up that is considered the most spacious in its class. It even has a larger cargo capacity than last year’s model, which makes this subcompact more practical, too.
