Kia Rio Trim Levels

There are two trims for the Rio. These are listed below:

  • LX
  • S

Between these two, you can be certain you'll be able to choose the one that fits in the best with your lifestyle needs. For example, if you find yourself on the road a lot, the fact that the S trim is available with Driver Attention Warning might be of interest to you. This system lets you know if it senses that your attention level has dropped so you can pull over and get some rest in the event you're tired.

The Generous Amount of Space Inside the Kia Rio

From front to back, you and your passengers are in for one comfortable ride inside the Rio. See below for a few of the dimensions that bring this point out:

  • Front Legroom: 42.1 inches
  • Front Hip Room: 52.9 inches
  • Rear Shoulder Room: 53.3 inches
  • Rear Legroom: 33.5 inches

Whether you're taking your kids to the movies or taking part in the carpool to the office, measurements like these see to it that everyone on board has more than enough wiggle room at their disposal.


Exterior Dimensions and Engine Specs

The Kia Rio is 172.6 inches long, 67.9 inches wide, and 57.1 inches high. Put together, these numbers translate to the Rio providing you with stable cornering abilities whenever you're taking tight turns.

Another aspect of this Kia vehicle's performance that's likely to be of interest to you is what it is under the hood. The 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine that propels this set of wheels down the street does so to the tune of 120 horsepower. You can be confident that holding your own throughout any challenges that come your way won't be a problem.

Additionally, the Rio helps make sure you have plenty of fuel left in the tank when you get to your destination thanks to its EPA-estimated 33 city and 41 highway MPG.*
