Car New |2018 Kia Rio Preview
The Kia Rio is an entry-level subcompact car, available as a 4-door sedan or a 5-door hatchback. This new, fourth-generation version adds standard comfort features and is slightly longer, lower, and wider than the previous model, providing more cabin room and a more athletic profile. Kia stresses its advanced safety features, fuel efficiency, and value. Three trim levels—LX, S, and ES—are available.
According to Kia, the new Rio’s exterior offers crisper lines than previous generations, providing a more sophisticated and sporty look. The front end features the latest version of Kia’s “tiger-nose” grille and includes newly designed headlights that are swept back for a more aggressive appearance. The fog lamp surrounds have been moved outwards, giving the front fascia more visual width and creating a lower window line around the cabin for improved driver and passenger view.
