With the release of the 2018 Rio, Kia has signaled a major upgrade to the standard subcompact car in the way of a stylish new exterior and upscale interior. Not only does the new Rio offer a roomier cabin for five than the model it replaces, but its interior boasts upgraded materials and new tech features. No matter if you go the route of the Rio 5-door hatch or the Rio 4-door sedan, a versatile 60/40 split-folding rear seat comes standard, with leather-trimmed seating available.
When you choose the 2018 Rio LX base model, expect to be wowed by its standard touchscreen display that puts all of the car's controls within reach. Upgrading to the 2018 Rio S trim gets you not only Bluetooth wireless connectivity, but also convenient steering-wheel-mounted buttons for the audio system, as well as the added cruise control. Technology features are further expanded in the top-of-the-line Rio EX, where a larger, 7-inch touchscreen display in the center stack features Kia's UVO infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
Kia has fitted the redesigned 2018 Rio with an impressive list of safety features to encourage safe travels. The range-topping Rio EX model gets Kia's Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB); the advanced system can automatically apply the brakes to prevent or lessen the impact of a frontal collision if the driver fails to respond to alerts. This advanced safety system is a rarity in the low-priced subcompact car class, but Kia continues to impress with its arsenal of high-tech features in its affordable cars!
