2022 Kia Rio 5-Door for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Trims, Powertrain, and Efficiency
The strikingly styled 2022 Kia Rio 5-Door is offered in a single trim called the S. Under its hood is a 120 horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that’s linked to an intelligent variable transmission (IVT) and front-wheel drivetrain. The EPA has estimated that the ’22 Rio 5-Door will achieve up to 33 mpg in around-town driving and 41 mpg on the highway. This stellar fuel efficiency combined with the model’s affordability and Kia’s extensive warranty coverage makes the Rio 5-Door exceptionally inexpensive to own and operate.
Standard and Optional Features
Don’t let the low MSRP fool you: the 2022 Rio 5-Door has plenty of standard features. It gets automatic on/off headlights, heated exterior mirrors, keyless entry, an overhead console with a holder for sunglasses, a space-saving spare tire, one USB data port and two USB charging ports, a 12-volt power outlet, and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback for extra versatility in accommodating cargo.
For a truly loaded Rio 5-Door, you can add the Technology Package. It contains LED headlights and positioning lights, automatic high beams, Smart Key (lets you lock/unlock the car without taking the key fob out of your pocket), push-button start, automatic climate control, and a crisp 4.2-inch “Supervision” instrument cluster. Kia named it “Supervision” with dual meaning, in that it has a high-resolution digital display and also clearly conveys information to the driver. This package also issues the Kia Drive Wise safety suite and the Kia Connect infotainment system, both of which are explained in more detail below.
Also available is Kia Connect, a smartphone application that lets you start the car remotely and adjust its climate settings, lock/unlock the doors, and connect with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to enable voice commands for certain remote features. Not only that, but Kia Connect also has a 911 roadside assistance feature that automatically signals emergency personnel if the airbags are deployed. This feature works for non-emergencies as well if you simply require basic roadside assistance.
Active Safety and Multimedia Technologies
The ’22 Rio 5-Door is a remarkably safe hatchback. In addition to its reinforced, high-strength steel structure and medley of advanced airbags, it’s also eligible for Kia Drive Wise, the automaker’s confidence-inspiring suite of driver-assistive technologies that contains forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, lane departure warning, driver attention warning, automatic high beams, and rear occupant alert.
The Rio 5-Door keeps everyone connected and entertained with its standard infotainment system. Its features – Bluetooth wireless technology, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a six-speaker sound system, and Siri Eyes Free – are all controlled via an 8-inch touchscreen. The available Kia Connect suite will provide SiriusXM satellite radio in addition to other features mentioned at the end of the Standard and Available Features section above.
