Berglund SUV and Imports Supercenter is happy to provide our Roanoke, Salem and Blacksburg customers with the Kia Rio, one of the most budget-friendly cars on the market.

Kia Rio Performance and Handling

The Kia Rio has seen only minor substitutions to its drivetrain. The original models sport a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 96 horsepower; however, Kia upped this number to 104 horsepower in 2003. For the second generation, the Rio got a 110-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. This base model was equipped with a five-speed manual transmission, while the higher trims received a four-speed automatic. As far as fuel efficiency goes, the Rio is a good choice. City drivers will prefer the automatic, which got up to 28 miles per gallon in the city and 34 on the highway in 2011, while the manual managed up to 27 miles per gallon in the city and 36 on the highway.


Kia Rio Features and Options

The Kia Rio is available in both sedan and hatchback body styles. Regardless of the number of doors, the vehicles have the same features and specs, but drivers looking for utility should go for the five-door while those looking for a sportier model should opt for the four. Throughout its lifetime, the hatchback has gone by various names, and drivers interested in a used five-door model should keep their eyes out for the Rio Cinco and Rio5. The Kia Rio can be found in base, LX and SX trim levels, and the following list represents features that are commonly included or optional:

  • Cloth seating
  • CD/MP3 stereo with auxiliary/USB audio input jacks
  • Air conditioning
  • Bluetooth
  • SiriusXM radio
  • 60/40-split-folding rear seatbacks
  • Power windows

Kia Rio Safety Features

The Kia Rio started out with fairly standard safety features; but with each redesign, Kia upgraded these components to stay competitive. The second generation Rio did well in 2010 government crash tests, and Edmunds.com notes that it received "four stars (out of a possible five) for driver protection and five stars for passenger protection in frontal impacts. For side impacts, the Rio earned four stars for front-seat occupants and three stars for rear-seat passengers." The most commonly found features in used models include:

  • Cruise control
  • Power Steering
  • Antilock brakes
  • Side-impact and full-length side curtain airbags
