Trims and Powertrain
Rio buyers can choose from a pair of trim levels: LX and S. Both get a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 120 hp joined to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drivetrain. According to EPA estimates, both trims return 34 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway, making the 2021 Kia Rio one of the most fuel-efficient small cars available.
Comfort and Convenience
The LX comes standard with heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, a USB data port, a 12-volt power outlet, an overhead sunglasses holder, and a rearview camera system with dynamic parking guidance. The S adds USB charging ports, remote keyless entry and trunk opener, automatic climate control, and a 60/40 split-folding rear seatback. Buyers can add the S Technology Package to get automatic emergency braking, Smart Key with Push-Button Ignition (lets you start or stop and lock or unlock the car with the push of a button), UVO link Connected Services (provides several remote services for your vehicle that are accessible from your smartphone), LED headlights, and satellite radio.
Driver-Assistive Safety and Technology
The ’21 Rio’s body is reinforced with a high-strength steel structure for optimal safety on the road. In terms of active safety equipment, the S comes with the Kia Drive Wise Driver Assist Technology bundle (forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, lane departure warning, and driver attention warning). Rear-occupant alert is also included to provide an audible chime and a visual warning if unattended passengers (or pets) remain in the rear seating area after the driver exits. A push notification will also be sent to the registered account holder when the audible warning is triggered.
The LX has an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability, and Siri Eyes Free, which allows the driver to use Siri while in the car.
