If you need an affordable vehicle that goes big on style and peppy performance, turn to the 2023 Kia Rio. Available as a four-door sedan and a five-door hatchback, this budget-friendly car is great for small families and young drivers.
The 2023 Kia Rio four-door sedan is available at two trim levels: LX and S. The 2023 Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback is available in a single trim: S.
No matter which body style or trim you choose, you’ll have the same powertrain under the hood of the new Kia Rio. The car’s 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine delivers a lively 120 horsepower and 112 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the Intelligent Variable Transmission that works with the engine, you can expect to get up to 32 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway, and 36 mpg combined — saving you even more money at the pump.
Stand out from other drivers with the strong stylings of the Kia Rio. The LX trim comes in three exterior colors: Clear White, Silky Silver, and Aurora Black. But when you opt for the S trim, you’ll have three more options to choose from: Steel Gray, Currant Red, and Sporty Blue. Outside of color choices, the new Rio adds various accents from front to back in black and chrome, depending on trim. Every new Rio, however, comes with useful exterior features like power heated side mirrors, heated rear glass, and auto headlight control.
Comfort and convenience come standard inside the 2023 Rio. Both body styles seat five people total, with 13.7 cubic feet of rear cargo room in the four-door sedan and 17.4 cubic feet of rear cargo room in the hatchback. The S trim has a rear 60/40 split-folding seat that adds a bit more flexibility for hauling various items. The seats in the Kia Rio are covered in soft woven cloth and are available in black or gray (S trim only). Between both of the trims, you’ll find useful amenities like an illuminated glove box, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat, an overhead sunglasses holder, a day/night rearview mirror, automatic climate control, Smart Key with a push-button start, and a sliding armrest with a storage bin.
You’ll always be connected in the Kia Rio. The standard 8-inch touch-screen display is where you’ll see all of your infotainment details like music and navigation. Every model comes with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, making it seamless to connect your smartphone and use your favorite compatible apps. You’ll also have the convenience of Bluetooth®, Siri® Eyes Free, and a USB input port. For even more connectivity, upgrade to the infotainment system with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and Kia Connect, which lets you remotely access the vehicle and do things like lock/unlock the doors and start the car.
Kia knows that keeping you and your family safe is important. That’s why the 2023 Rio can be equipped with all kinds of advanced Kia Drive Wise driver-assist features to help you drive confidently on every journey. This includes systems like Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Lane Following Assist — all great for highway driving. When you’re driving in the city or more suburban areas, systems like Driver Attention Warning and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection will come in handy. And even when you’re not driving, Rear Occupant Alert will remind you to check the back seat before leaving the vehicle to ensure maximum safety.
