2017 Kia Rio
Performance without compromise. With a Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine that produces powerful get up and go, the Rio is the state-of-the-art sub-compact that's as fun to look at as it is to drive.
From its sculpted, aerodynamic shape to its distinctive front grille, the 2017 Rio is sure to draw looks. Inspired by European design, we updated both the front and rear to be even sleeker. Because bold style is seen from all angles.
The 2017 Rio arrives with fresh styling, including available 15-inch alloy wheels.
Get in, stretch out.
The Rio’s bold, dynamic styling starts at the exterior and continues into the cabin. Loaded with driver-focused amenities, split-folding rear seats, and plenty of headroom and legroom for all passengers. It’s the small car with big comforts.
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.
Tech for the modern driver.
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.
Connection on command.
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.
Engineered to last.
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.
Advanced control with Sportmatic®.
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.
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.
Made for life’s curves.
The Rio’s advanced driver-assistive systems function automatically to give you enhanced control in various driving conditions. From the steering control of Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) to the braking support of Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), the Rio is intelligent safety technology when you need it.
