Interior Features of the 2017 Kia Rio

Even though the 2017 Rio is a subcompact car, it has a roomy cabin that seats five with a surprisingly upscale interior. In addition to well-padded cloth on both the driver and front passenger seats, the driver's side is 6-way power adjustable. The Rio sedan boasts 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear 60/40 split seats folded. The hatchback features 15 cubic feet with the rear seats unfolded and 49.8 cubic feet when folded. Adding to both convenience and comfort is a standard tilt steering wheel, or you can opt for one that telescopes. On the upper trim levels, leather-trimmed seats can be added. For the EX, standard features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, soft-touch dash pad, and knit-cloth seats. All of the audio and climate setting buttons are easy to reach. The 2017 Rio provides more than you would expect from an affordably priced subcompact car.

2017 Kia Rio Exterior Features

The four-door 2017 Kia Rio looks sharp with its sculpted and aerodynamic shape. Enhancing the exterior are a distinctive front grille and a sleeker front and rear design. You can jazz up the exterior with available features. While one body color was discontinued, two new colors were added, giving you eight color choices. The first new color on the 2017 Rio is Clear White, a reference to the Stormtroopers in the "Star Wars" movies. The second, Signal Red, reminds people of dedicated firefighters. You will also appreciate the 15-inch steel wheels on the LX and the 15-inch alloy wheels on the SX. On just the EX, a chrome grille and fog lights are standard, along with the Convenience package that boasts 17-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust tips, and LED running lights and taillights.

Performance of the 2017 Kia Rio

All of the 2017 Kia Rio trim levels come with front-wheel drive. In addition, they all have a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 138 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque, whether you go with the sedan or hatchback. If you go with the LX, you have a choice of a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission, whereas only the automatic is offered on the EX and SX. The EX is the only trim that comes standard with an automatic stop/start system that shuts the engine down when stopped to reduce fuel consumption. With the EX's standard Convenience package, the Rio has a sport-tuned suspension and paddle shifters.
