We put the 2017 Rio’s 1.6-liter GDI engine through 300 hours of wide-open throttle testing before it ever reaches the road. It achieves up to 37 mpg on the highway and features an Active Eco System that helps optimize fuel economy. The Rio is the perfect balance of performance and efficiency.
Take control with Rio’s Sportmatic® automatic transmission. It lets you manually shift gears, without a clutch, for six speeds of sporty connection to the road.
The Halogen Multi-Reflector Lens Headlights offer substantial illumination of the road in front of you.
The available power‐folding outside mirrors are convenient for parking in tight spaces.
UVO is your co-pilot on the road. It’s advanced technology that responds to your voice, or the touch of a button, to offer driving directions, access your favorite apps, and more. And with Bluetooth® wireless technology, you can make or answer calls without taking your hands off the wheel so that you can stay connected wherever you go.
Effortlessly start or stop your Rio with the push of a button while your Smart Key remains in your pocket or purse.
Power windows, locks, and mirrors—all at your fingertips.
Power door locks and remote keyless entry make getting into your car hassle‐free. Even when your hands are full.
Available heated front seats: the driver and passenger can choose from three settings for the ideal level of warmth in the seat back and cushion.
The Rio is sophisticated design all the way down to the interior fabrics. Subtle black and gray seating gives the cabin a modern look, while accents of leather offer a luxury feel. Contrasting gray stitching is incorporated throughout the Rio’s trim—from steering wheel to seats to armrest—for standout style the moment you get in.
Your safety is our priority. That’s why every Kia is designed with trusted technologies to help protect you and your passengers. The 2017 Rio’s advanced airbags system includes dual front, front seat-mounted side, and full-length side curtain airbags.
The Rio comes equipped with the latest technology to make driving more convenient like the available Rear-Camera Display that shows you what’s behind your Rio as you back out of the driveway or reverse into a spot.
