2019 Kia Rio: Versatility Is The Name Of The Game

For far too long, the compact car has suffered from a lack of personality. Sure, some automakers have gone so far as to offer “tuner” versions of their compact cars, but these models don’t appeal to the broader market. They typically feature hyper-powered engines and garish exterior styling that can be a turn off to some shoppers. That’s what makes the 2019 Kia Rio such a special vehicle. It’s got just enough flair and personality to break out of the hum-drum that most compact cars offer for drivers in the Lithia Springs and Johns Creek, GA areas.

You’ve got a choice of two body styles when it comes to the 2019 Kia Rio: sedan and hatchback. One of the big changes for the 2019 model year is that Kia has reduced the availability of trim levels down to two in the Rio lineup:

  • LX (sedan)
  • S

Don’t think for one second that the reduction in trim levels means you are getting shorted one bit on features and amenities. Every trim in the 2019 Rio lineup comes with a wealth of features. That shouldn’t come as really any surprise since Kia has been known for quite some time for stocking all its vehicles with tons of premium features on all trim levels.

But don’t take our word for it…

Come down to Atlanta West Kia today and schedule a test of the new Kia model you want. You’ll find the Rio along with tons of other new Kia models when you shop at our dealership.

A Look Inside the 2019 Kia Rio

Last year’s redesign of the Rio left it with a more spacious interior than before and that’s good news for compact car shoppers in the greater Atlanta metro area. It’s also chock full of the kind of tech features that everyone wants and expects these days from a new vehicle.

That includes a seven-inch touchscreen with the highly popular Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features. These two functions allow for seamless integration of your favorite apps onto the touchscreen inside the cabin. Kia also made sure to include advanced safety tech options like hill start assist control, vehicle stability management system, electronic stability control, and autonomous emergency braking, as well.

Exterior Paint Color Options on the 2019 Kia Rio

Based on last year’s model, we expect the 2019 Kia Rio to continue to be offered in six different exterior paint color options:

  • Currant Red
  • Clear White
  • Silky Silver
  • Deep Sea Blue
  • Smoke Blue
  • Phantom Gray

In addition to the lack of change with paint color choices, we also don’t expect any exterior styling aspects to change given the complete redesign that the vehicle underwent last year.

Power & Performance of the 2019 Kia Rio

At this point, we expect the engine in the 2019 Kia Rio to remain the same as was found under the hood of last year’s model. It’s a 1.6L GDI engine that delivers 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft torque.
