Kia Rio Guide
Get the best online car shopping experience with expert reviews of the Kia Rio. Read more to learn about the most important features and important factors to consider when researching the Kia Rio.
The latest Rio is another leap forward thanks to its evocative styling, peppy engine and an abundance of interior space. The Rio is offered in both sedan and four-door hatchback body styles, and while they have identical mechanicals and interior components, the hatchback offers significantly more utility. In general, the newer the Rio you're looking at, the better it will be. Discover the ins and outs on used Kia Rios, available now in Carvana's inventory.
Stylish Interior DesignThough the materials used inside the Rio's cabin aren't of the highest quality, the interior is stylishly designed for a vehicle with such an affordable price tag. In particular, the soft-touch dash and metal-paint trim is a nice touch that appears on the Rio's EX and SX models.
Plenty Of Room For PassengersThe Rio comes with quality space and comfort for passengers of all shapes and sizes. Up front, taller drivers will enjoy the adjustability of the steering wheel in the EX and SX models, while the backseat does well to provide ample room for occupants.
Strong AccelerationThe standard 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine the Rio is outfit with may not seem like much, but for the subcompact class, it's a standout. Behind the wheel, the Rio feels powerful and responsive on the accelerator, which is evidenced by its 9.4 second split when sprinting from 0 to 60 mph.
Ride ComfortThe Rio has a sporty-ish feel, but it lacks the overall engagement and refinement found in amongst competing brands. Specifically, the Rio lacks responsive handling compared to class leaders and can offer up a harsh ride traveling over rough pavement.
Telescoping Steering WheelWhile the steering wheel on the Rio's base-level LX does have an element of adjustability, it does not come with the full telescoping function found on higher trims such as the EX and SX. This could be a hangup for passengers who prefer the additional functionality.
Safety ScoresThe Rio earned four out of five stars for overall crash protection in government testing, while also receiving the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) top rating of Good for moderate-overlap frontal-offset crash test, roof-strength test, head restraint and seat protection tests. However, the Rio only earned an Acceptable rating for side-impact testing and was given the second-worst rating of Marginal in the small-overlap frontal offset test.
