The 2018 Kia Rio Makes Drivers and Budgets Happy

Drivers who turn to cars in the subcompact class are typically looking for a lot of the same things: an affordable price, smooth handling, and strong fuel economy chief among them. But subcompacts suffer from the widely held belief that they’re pretty sparse when it comes to features and space. Fortunately, the 2018 Kia Rio effectively challenges that expectation.

As is the way with Kia cars, the Rio has much more to offer than its budget-friendly price would suggest. This value comes in the form of user-friendly infotainment features, available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, satellite radio, and a touchscreen interface as well as a stylish design, surprising roominess for a subcompact, and available safety features like forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking.

The 2018 Kia Rio lineup includes three trims:

  • The LX features a 5-inch touchscreen with AM/FM/MP3/SiriusXM audio system.
  • The S features Bluetooth wireless technology,* cruise control with steering wheel–mounted controls, and a 60/40-split folding rear seat.
  • The EX features autonomous emergency braking, UVO with a 7-inch color touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Atlanta West Kia invites drivers in and around the Duluth, Alpharetta, and Smyrna, GA, areas to come by our Lithia Springs dealership and see these models in person. Explore our wonderful selection of new Kias and pre-owned cars of all makes and models, and then get behind the wheel for a test drive of your favorites. We think you’ll be won over by the small price and big offerings of this subcompact star of the Kia lineup.

A Peek Inside the 2018 Kia Rio’s Interior

The 2018 Kia Rio has seating for five in a well-designed interior that makes the most of the available space. Standard but premium cloth upholstery can be upgraded to leather, and an available 60/40-split folding rear seat allows you to maximize the cargo space when you’re carrying more cargo than people.

The clean design inside the Rio gives it a modern and stylish appeal, and easy-to-use infotainment interfaces put the available features like Bluetooth,* Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto right at your fingertips.

The Stylish 2018 Rio Exterior

It may be small in scale, but the Kia Rio has a solid build and a sleek, modern design that is appealing and attractive. Optional exterior accessories like sport visors, front and rear splash guards, and a hood deflector add functional exterior elements. Exterior paint colors depend on the trim you choose, but the available options on the top-of-the-lineup EX model are: Clear White, Silky Silver, Deep Sea Blue, Currant Red, Smoke Blue, and Phantom Gray.

Engine / Performance Aspects of the 2018 Kia Rio

All three 2018 Kia Rio trims are powered by a 1.6L Inline-4 engine with 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque. The base model’s engine is paired to a standard 6-speed manual transmission, but a 6-speed automatic with Sportmatic is available. The S and EX models come standard with the 6-speed automatic transmission.
