The 2017 Kia Rio offers the choice of playful hatchback versatility or the cool formality of a sedan silhouette, and you'll likely know which feels right for you. However, both subcompact models offer stylish design elements, including sculpted side fascias for the Rio sedan and a rear spoiler for the Rio hatchback. Practicality is standard on both models too, including four-door access for easy passenger entry and exit and heated power mirrors for convenient adjustment in all weathers.
Traveling with friends and family, or commuting with colleagues is a cinch with the 2017 Rio. If you're planning to share driving duties on a road trip, the standard height-adjustable driver's seat and tilt-adjustable steering wheel make swapping easy. The Rio EX trim adds extra comfort for your co-pilot, including padded armrests and convenient storage options. Taking your crew out to dinner? Both Rio models can handle five adult passengers thanks to some generous second-row dimensions, including 31.1 inches of rear legroom, and 37.6 inches of rear headroom.
All 2017 Rio models are powered by a 1.6L four-cylinder engine, good for 138 hp and 123 lb-ft of torque. If you like to drive instinctively, you may prefer the 2017 Rio LX Sedan, which comes with a manual transmission. All others are automatic, an admittedly enjoyable feature on the big journeys where the miles stack up. In fact, the 2017 Rio's highway driving figures are pretty impressive for a subcompact, achieving an EPA-estimated 36 mpg, with urban jaunts faring well too, at an EPA-estimated 27 mpg.
The 2017 Rio has great cargo capability with plenty of flexibility built in, serving up space for your crew's school bags, sporting equipment, and groceries on the go. The sedan is no slouch, offering up to 13.7 cu-ft of fixed cargo storage, with the ability to expand for longer items via a 60/40 split-folding rear row. If you need it, the hatchback has a roomier opening with 15.0 cu-ft of space as standard, plus the option to expand up to 49.8 cu-ft when the second row is folded down.
For driver convenience extras and upgraded comfort features, the Rio SX Hatchback could be the irresistible option you're looking for. A tinted power sunroof lets in the light on sunny morning commutes, while the leather upholstery and heated front seats take care of passenger comfort on frosty winter days. The SX trim's sports-tuned suspension, rearview camera, and steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters also ensure driver enjoyment in any situation or circumstance.
