2020 Kia Rio: Specs, Features & Trim Comparison

2020 kia rio specs features trims

The perfect vehicle is available in multiple sizes and flavors and for the city commuter, perfection usually is available in spirited, money-saving compact or subcompact that feels like home among the bursting city highways and suburban roadways. The 2020 Kia Rio absolutely meets those needs with its fuel-sipping 4-cylinder engine and phenomenal driving attributes that has the potential to transform rush hour into your personal happy hour.

Kia’s remarkable subcompact sedan/hatchback rolls into the new model year with a new engine/transmission combo along with some renovations to its infotainment capabilities. Last year’s 130 hp 1.6-liter 4-cylinder has been bumped for a much more fuel friendly 120 hp 1.6-liter four-cylinder that will most definitely make a positive difference on your pocketbook. Kia’s cutting edge continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) replaces the Rio’s six-speed automatic. For the infotainment upgrade you’ll find a brand-new 7.0-inch touchscreen along with standard connectivity upgrades which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.


Performance

If you’re searching for a burly, road-chewing hoss then the subcompact automotive category isn’t where you need to be looking for your next vehicle. However, since you’re reading this, we’re going to assume “dependable” and “economic” are pretty high on your automotive priority list. If that presumption is correct, welcome to your 120-hp, 1.6-liter, 4-cylinder CVT powered home-away-from-home. If the estimated 33 city and 44 highway gas mileage numbers do not thrill you, the 2020 Kia Rio’s dynamic performance will.


Design Highlights

It’s easy to think all subcompact cars are the same when taking into consideration the cookie-cutter styles most manufacturers seem to be stuck in. Kia has chosen the road-less-traveled strategy to the Rio’s exterior style by successfully mixing “sophisticated” with “sporty”. As soon as you take your place behind the wheel, you’ll most likely be wondering what engineering wizardry is at work when you see the spacious cabin full of all the modern conveniences in such an allegedly “compact” space.


Top Technology Highlights

Speaking of ‘modern amenities’, you’ll be thrilled to see Kia’s designers have the very same safety and infotainment priorities that you do. With the Rio’s infotainment packages, all of the technical conveniences either comes standard or is readily offered with trim upgrades including, but not limited to, a 7.0-inch touchscreen screen, USB and bluetooth connectivity, Apple and Android’s proprietary application capabilities, and SiriusXM Satellite radio. On the automotive safety front, you’ll be pleased to discover peace of mind is standard equipment in the Rio with it’s IIHS Top Safety Pick rating and Kia’s complete selection of sophisticated safety tech like auto-emergency braking and forward-collision warning.
