2014 Kia Rio 5-Door Exterior

For the 2014 model year, the Kia Rio 5-Door comes out swinging. With a low stance and curvy exterior, the hatchback has a particularly quirky character that is appealing without being too over the top. A prominent, honeycomb grille and edgy headlights create a unique front façade, while the simple, yet sporty rear gives off a noticeable energy that makes you want to drive this subcompact fast.

2014 Kia Rio 5-Door Performance

A 1.6-liter inline four powers all models of the Rio hatchback, churching out a decent 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque. A standard six-speed automatic is the transmission of choice with front-wheel-drive, though the LX model does come with an optional six-speed manual. Combined, this drivetrain makes for a peppy ride and a great drive.

With quality material and pleasant trims, the Rio provides passengers with a refined cabin that takes the quirkiness from the exterior and brings it into the interior. The available UVO infotainment system keeps the driver connected while on the road, while the touchscreen is crisp and clean.
