The Rio5 no longer looks like a bargain basement economy car. Kia has redesigned the Rio5 with crisp, dynamic styling that looks European, not Korean. A practical 5-door hatchback body provides maximum passenger and cargo capacity. The standard 1.6L I-4 puts out 110-bhp, and can be mated to 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic. Comprehensive standard features such as air conditioning, side-curtain airbags, and 15-inch alloy wheels, make the Rio5 a great value in the compact segment.

What Changed:

All-new Rio5 replaces the Rio Cinco wagon. New model is longer, wider and has more horsepower than the model it replaces. The FWD Rio5 is powered by a 110hp 1.6L 4-cylinder coupled with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic.
