2018 Kia Rio Trim Levels

Comparison image showing three trim levels of 2018 kia rio

Renowned for its urban-ready attitude, high fuel economy and incredible value, the Kia Rio is a stand out model in the subcompact class. Like Kia’s lineup, the Rio is a car that isn’t content to fall-in-line with the unwritten agreement among competing manufacturers that people who pay less deserve a stripped-down penalty box without any generosity or enjoyment behind its existence. The Rio’s 1.6L 4-cylinder engine offers a spirited 130 horsepower. Promising value in both its price tag and fuel efficiency, the 2018 Kia Rio gets a combined fuel economy rating of 32 miles per gallon.

Completely redesigned for 2018, the Rio enters a new phase of its existence – one that is mature and developed. Handling praised by publications like Car and Driver and a range of features and equipment packages that meet your needs and wants make the Rio a model that defies the expectations of its spartan classmates.
