Kia Rio Performance

To get you where you need to go without any hiccups, the 1.6-liter I-4 engine is included under the hood of this compact car. This generates 130 HP and 119 lb-ft of torque, the perfect amount of power for hitting the city streets.

Also included is the re-engineered 6-speed Gasoline Direct Injection transmission. While working alongside the engine, you’re able to receive an impressive estimated fuel economy of 28 city/37 highway/32 combined MPG.* Additionally, with the 11.9-gallon fuel tank, you won’t have to hit the gas station quite as much!

2019 Rio Innovative Technology

This vehicle makes it easy to stay connected while on the road with Apple CarPlay™. This allows you to verbally text, receive inbound calls, and access apps without you ever needing to take your eyes off the road.

Android Auto™ is also available, which gives you contact to your phone to make calls and send texts, as well as access the voice-activated navigation. Best of all, both features are easily accessible with the available 7-inch touchscreen on your dashboard, equipped with a rear camera display. Backing out of your driveway or parking spot has never been so easy.


Whenever you need help on or off the road, the groundbreaking UVO eServices has your back. Have you ever forgotten where you’ve parked in a busy lot or an area you’re not familiar with? We all have, but with UVO, this system connects with your smartphone, so you can always keep track of where it’s parked.

UVO also reminds you when it’s time to schedule maintenance. It’ll even tell you when your vehicle has a diagnostic issue and tracks your service history. Additionally, roadside assistance is only a press of a button away. When you find yourself in need of help, simply open the app, input what’s going on, then help will be on the way!
