2019 Kia Rio Pros

After being re-designed in 2018 the new 2019 Kia Rio drops the EX trim level and bumps up the previously mid-level S trim to top of the pack. The Rio boasts Apply CarPlay or Android Auto as newly standard equipment and is now only offered with an automatic transmission.

2019 Kia Rio Model Highlights

The Kia Rio is powered by a 1.6L direct injection 4-cylinder engine making 130 hp. Power is sent to the front wheels via a newly standard 6-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy is excellent for a non-hybrid car like this with a claimed combined city and highway mileage of 32 mpg with 37 mpg supposedly attainable on the highway.

Standard features on subcompacts like the Rio tend to be pretty sparse, but base LX-trimmed Rios come standard with power door locks, air conditioning, a 5-inch touchscreen controlling a stereo with MP3 and SiriusXM capabilities, a USB input jack, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and automatic headlights.

Top of the line S trim includes an optional 7-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities along with 15-inch alloy wheels, nicer seat trimming, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, fog lights, one-touch windows, a forward collision warning system and an autonomous emergency braking system.

Optional features include a Supervision Meter 3.5 inch gauge display and Forward Collision Assist with automatic avoidance,

Standard safety features on the Rio include dual front mounted and side mounted airbags, full length side curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes and stability management systems, a hill start system and a tire pressure monitoring system.

2019 Kia Rio Model News

The Rio is Kia's least-expensive entry in their lineup. Prices start at just above $15,000 for the sedan, while the 5-door adds about $300 to that price. Styling for this generation is clean and sophisticated with Kia neatly incorporating its family grill into the car's front fascia. Competitors include other subcompacts such as the Honda Fit, the Ford Fiesta and the Toyota Yaris. While those cars tend to remind buyers that they're dealing with simple, bare-bones transportation, the Rio offers enough comfort, convenience and sophistication to feel a little bit classier, all while undercutting those rivals on price.
