The Rio front-wheel drive sub compact is offered in two bodystyles – hatchback and sedan. Kia refreshed the Rio extensively and was also redesigned to keep its international popularity strong. Penned at Kia’s European and U.S. design studios in collaboration with Kia’s design base in Namyang, Korea,Kia claims the new platform reflects a 30 per cent increase in tensile strength over the previous Rio.
It has grown in dimensions moderately so interior room has marginally gone up as well. The interior is more spacious, modern and upscale with an improved instrument panel, more ergonomic layout and upgraded interior materials. The cabin has also been redesigned to better accommodate the Rio’s new range of technologies.

Standard features on the Rio include power steering, power windows, central locking, halogen lamps, manual A/C, fabric seats, USB port and 15-inch steel wheels. Higher models get a 5.0-inch touchscreen audio system, 3.5-inch LCD screen on the instrument cluster, automatic A/C, leather seats, fog lamps and 15-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels.
