Break all the rules. We started with an idea. To reinvent practical without compromising on style. The result is the convention-breaking 2018 Rio. Sleeker and longer, with a wider stance and geometric surfaces, the next-generation Rio is more than your everyday car. It's sophisticated style in subcompact form.
Available 15" alloy wheels create a subcompact with street-smart style. The Rio's small footprint leaves a big impression.
Enjoy the confidence of cruising without compromise. Cut through night with available projector beam fog lights.
Head on, the 2018 Rio is both approachable and athletic. Featuring multi-reflector halogen headlights, available fog lights, and Kia's iconic tiger-nose grille.
Bold strokes and strong lines give the Rio its aerodynamic silhouette. And available 15" split-spoke alloy wheels show off its sporty side.
Eye-catching tail lights and a unique bumper graphic emphasize the all-new Rio's wide and stable stance.
The scenic route, every time. Enjoy the view no matter the destination. The 2018 Rio features a clean, modern cabin with driver-focused innovations and a streamlined layout, plus flexible seating and storage for optimized versatility. It's the sleek interior designed to fit, and enhance, your lifestyle.
The Rio's redesigned center console has everything you need conveniently within reach. The innovative two-tier tray is useful for storing your cell phone or other small items, and the modern floating display allows for a bigger screen while staying true to the interior's clean, uncluttered look.
Be road-trip ready at a moment's notice. The 2018 Rio features a wider trunk opening for faster, more convenient packing. And the 60/40 split-folding rear seat offers plenty of ways to comfortably fit your cargo-even the extra-long items.
The expanded interior space extends to rear seating so your passengers enjoy a roomier ride. EX Launch edition includes eye-catching details like red stitching on partial leather seats.
Take a seat in the Rio's stylishly comfortable cabin, packaged with plush seating, an available leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 6-way adjustable driver's seat for personalized comfort. We've even lengthened the sliding center armrest to give you more support while you drive.

Drive in style with available cruise control and leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Engineered for fun. With a drive performance this big, the 2018 Rio goes beyond what's expected. From the responsive handling to the powerfully-efficient engine, the all-new Rio proves great things do come in small packages.
An enhanced engine and a re-engineered 6-speed automatic transmission are just two of the many refinements that make the all-new Rio fun to drive. Add the updated braking system and Motor Driven Power Steering (MDPS), and you've got increased control and responsiveness behind the wheel.
Manufactured with high-quality, insulating materials and 30% more Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS), the 2018 Rio delivers its smoothest and quietest ride yet.
Some advanced tech is made to be seen, like the available Apple Carplay™ and Android Auto™ for easy smartphone connectivity. Others are made to take action, like available Kia Drive Wise innovations that work automatically to help you stay alert. Find them both on the high-tech 2018 Rio.
Stay alert with Kia Drive Wise, Kia's suite of driver-assistive technologies designed to take action when you need it. The available Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) offers audible and visual alerts if it detects a potential hazard in your path. And the available Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system can automatically apply the brakes if the system anticipates a frontal collision.
The Rio sedan offers 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space inside the trunk.
Seamless shifting comes standard with a re-engineered 6-speed automatic transmission with Sportmatic®.
Keep devices plugged and playing with the standard auxiliary input USB and power outlet.
Prized protection. Every vehicle in Kia's lineup is engineered with your safety in mind. And the 2018 Rio, with its suite of passive and active safety systems, is no different. Reinforced with 30% more Advanced High-Strength Steel for increased rigidity, the next-generation Rio is built to be strong-and to help protect you and your passengers when it matters most.
Active and adaptive, just like you. The 2018 Rio is equipped with active safety systems designed to sense and react to your driving conditions. Like the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), which helps you maintain control when braking, and Electronic Stability Control (ESC), which helps you stay on course with improved stability. Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep your Rio in place as you move off an incline.
Heightened protection comes standard with the Rio's advanced airbag system. It features dual front, side, and side curtain airbags, as well as sensors that can detect the level of an impact and the presence of a front-seat passenger.
Keep track of your Rio even when you're not in it. My Car Zone™ lets you set speed limits, curfews, and boundaries of where you want it to go, and alerts you when they've been broken.
The Rio was designed to be smart and intuitive, and our interactive Augmented Reality (AR) Owner's Manual is no different. Just scan the dash or under the hood with your mobile device, and you'll see features of your new Rio pop up on your screen. Or simply sit back and take a tour from the comfort of your couch.
Eyes where you need them. The available Rear-Camera Display shows a live image of what's behind you while you are in reverse.
Available Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Forward Collision Warning (FCWS) not only to alert you of potential accidents, but also to help avoid some altogether.
Blind Spot Detection (BSD) System offers convenient visual and audible signals to help warn you of objects not in your field of view. Lane Change Assist (LCA) warns you when it detects a vehicle that's quickly approaching.
