Features and performance of the 2018 Kia Rio

The Kia Rio has three different trim levels for 2018. To start things off, the base model is the LX, which you may be familiar with from most of the other models in the 2018 Kia lineup. From there the Rio goes up with the S trim and the top EX trim.

While we are on the topic of trim levels, it is interesting to note that the Rio EX actually has a leather interior option. This is a rare occurrence at this class. There are also a wide range of exterior color options available, especially at the S and EX levels. The base model LX is the only model to come with a manual transmission standard, though it is also available with the same sporty 6-speed automatic that you can find at higher trim levels.

Performance isn’t typically a major topic of concern for compact cars, but it should be. You don’t just want a car that will get you from A to B. You want a car that will be fun, and that’s what the Kia Rio provides for 2018. Under the hood, you get a 1.6-liter engine equipped with dual continuously variable valve timing. This engine is capable of outputting 130 horsepower and 119 pound-feet of torque. This engine is also capable of providing 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway, and it comes standard at all trim levels.

When it comes to technology, the all-new Rio doesn’t disappoint. Not only does a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system come standard, but a 7-inch one is also available on the EX. Rear camera display, Bluetooth connectivity, and remote keyless entry all come at the S trim level and above.

If you are looking for the perfect compact car, then you may have found it with the 2018 Kia Rio. Archer Kia can help you find the perfect Kia model and trim level right here in Houston, TX. We hope to work with you soon.
