2018 Kia Rio

Kia's subcompact sedan and hatchback are all-new for 2018, riding on a new, larger platform with a new body. The redesigned interior is more upscale, and the Rio also has an expanded suite of safety features.

2017 Kia Rio

The 2017 Kia Rio and Rio 5-door receive few changes this year. Last year’s revised front and rear styling can now be sprayed in some zazzy new colors, including Red and Black on the LX trim. Digital Yellow is off the palette and the 4-door SX trim level has been discontinued.

2016 Kia Rio

The 2016 Kia Rio and Rio 5-door subcompacts receive revised front and rear styling, minor interior enhancements and an upgraded UVO eServices package. The 6-speed manual transmission is no longer offered on the Rio 5-door, while the SX trim gains the contents of last year’s Premium package.

About Kia Rio

The value-packed 2018 Kia Rio, available as a sedan or 5-door hatchback, boasts a larger interior than its diminutive size would suggest, a generous serving of tech-savvy features and the best warranty in the segment. The Rio is a more substantial car than its sub-$15,000 base price would suggest, and its options list includes items that you'd normally find on cars costing significantly more. All-new for 2018, the Rio is bolstered by an attractive, quiet interior, a comfortable ride, and an expansive array of safety features. An underappreciated car in the subcompact group, the Rio is poised to take on segment standouts like the Honda Fit, Nissan Versa (and Note), Ford Fiesta and Toyota Yaris.
