2016 Kia Rio Pros

The Kia Rio gets a few styling tweaks for 2016 along with an updated interior and a couple of new colors. The front end of the Rio gets the most obvious changes, with a new grill, slightly repositioned headlights and new fog light surrounds. Inside, Kia has added a few higher end looking trim pieces as well as improving their UVO infotainment system.

2016 Kia Rio Model Highlights

The 2016 Kia Rio comes in sedan or 5-door hatchback body styles and is offered in three different trim levels: LX, EX and SX. Regardless of the model, all Rios are powered by a 138-hp 1.6L 4-cylinder engine. LX models come with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, while the other two trims only get the automatic.

The Rio's direct-injected engine is among the more efficient engines of its size, returning fuel economy ratings of 29 mpg city and 37 highway with the manual transmission. Also of note is the Rio's optional fuel-saving Idle Stop and Go Technology -- that automatically shuts the engine off at stoplights and restart it when the brake is released.

The Rio's lightweight structure uses more high-strength steel, while the suspension -- MacPherson struts in front, with a stabilizer bar and a torsion-beam setup in back -- is configured for a good combination of nimble around-town handling and good passenger comfort. SX models get a somewhat stiffer, sportier calibration.

Overall, there's no significant difference in passenger room between the Rio sedan and hatchback models. However, the sedan is about a foot longer, bringing an especially roomy trunk. The hatchback's split-folding rear seatback frees up a vast cargo hold when down, making it arguably more versatile.

All 2016 Rio models come with six standard airbags, including front seat-mounted bags plus full-length side-curtain bags. Electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard on the Rio, as is a Hill Start Assist Control system to avoid rolling back on uphill starts.

Rio LX models include steering-wheel audio controls, a trip computer, split-folding rear seatbacks and a driver's seat that's height-adjustable. EX models add a host of popular features including a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, Bluetooth connectivity with voice commands, power windows and upgraded trims. A Power Package is available on the LX, adding power windows and keyless entry, while a Convenience Package for the EX adds alloy wheels and the UVO voice-activated, touch-screen infotainment system.

At the top of the model line, the Rio SX comes with power-folding outside mirrors, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, a rear camera system and Kia's UVO voice-activated infotainment system. Additionally, the SX is dressed up with metal pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, an upgraded instrument cluster, LED front running lights and LED taillights. An SX Premium Package adds navigation with SiriusXM Traffic and rear camera display, which replaces the UVO system. Push-button start is also included, as are heated leather seating and a power sunroof.

2016 Kia Rio Model News

Good fuel economy and decent power are two of the main points that will ring relevant to those cross-shopping the Rio against any of the competition. In addition to being one of the lowest-priced cars in the U.S. market, the 2016 Rio is unique for being one of the few non-hybrid cars in its class to feature fuel-saving engine start/stop technology, which momentarily shuts the engine off at stoplights. Kia notes that 85 percent of the Rio's materials are recyclable at the end of the vehicle's lifespan and that seat foams are 100-percent biodegradable.

The Rio's great design, inside and out, its strong body structure and enhanced safety and its smooth direct-injection engine and 6-speed transmissions are all other very good reasons to consider the Rio in a crowded class that includes the Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Sonic, Mazda2, Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris among others.
