Summary

Cars.com National
Vehicle Overview
The Rio sedan is Kia's entry in the competitive small-car segment. Trim levels include a bare-bones Base model, an LX and a sporty SX. The Rio competes with the Chevrolet Aveo and Toyota Yaris.

Kia's Rio5 hatchback is covered separately in the Cars.com Research section.


New for 2010
Rio gets a minor facelift with a revised grille and front and rear bumpers, and the LX and SX also get turn-signal indicators integrated into the side mirrors. Inside, there is an optional voice-activated Bluetooth capability and a second front power outlet (replacing the cigarette lighter). All models now have a tire pressure monitoring system and red-orange interior lighting, and those with automatic transmission add an EcoMinder indicator that glows green to denote efficient driving.

The Rio features a black mesh grille and swept-back headlights.
  • Available 14-, 15- or 16-inch wheels
  • Standard auto-off headlamps
  • Optional heated power mirrors

Interior
The interior design is fairly conservative, though it's well-put-together. SX models include chrome dashboard accents, unique sport seat fabric and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob with red stitching.

  • Optional power windows and locks
