2016 Kia Rio Review

The 2016 Kia Rio takes a step up with an all new design on the outside. Inside they've built the Rio to be the quietest one ever. With plenty of different configurations to fit your lifestyle, everyone will have a reason to fall in love with the all-new Rio.
Updated Design
The 2016 Kia Rio continues the brand's philosophy of updated design. It's more of a refresh than a redesign, but it looks much better up front. Instead of that overly slopped front end with a huge grille, Kia opted for a more sophisticated look that includes a thin front grille and long arched front headlights.  There is also a new fog light and low front end display, and in general the Rio is now more consistent to the rest of the Kia lineup.
In the back Kia has pushed the taillights farther to the corners for a more dynamic look.
If you've previously driven a Rio, one thing you notice about this model is its quieter ride. Using high-density foam in the A and B pillars, Kia has reduced the noise levels in the new Kia, making it a more comfortable commute.
The Rio also has two new exterior colors -- Urban Blue and Digital Yellow.
A Great Body
There is a four-door Rio and a five-door Rio hatchback model that gives you more cargo space that's easy to access. With a number of seating and storage options, you always have the right mix of cargo and people storage. Five can fit comfortably, but it's easy to fold down the 60-40 rear folding seats for more cargo space than ever. Plus there is also a hidden secret concealed storage cargo cover that is perfect for storing your most important cargo safely out of sight. A covered console up front with a sliding arm rest is another place to easily hide things like wallets, cell phones or personal belongings, safely and out of sight.

Loaded with Tech
The 2016 Kia Rio has every option available to turn your car into a Smartphone on wheels. Plus all the available comfort features make it the best morning commute of all time.
The Rio comes with UVO voice activation technology. This keeps you safe on the road because it lets you make hands-free calls, it reads your text messages and you can even send a text message from your voice. So for instance if you are running late, you don't need to risk texting while driving, just simply let UVO tell your spouse that you are running late, and it will send a text on your behalf.
The UVO system will also control your streaming music, podcasts and other media controls. The Rio also offers a navigation system option, backup camera and USB and Auxiliary Plugs.
Even use UVO from your phone with the UVO eService App with roadside assistance, vehicle diagnostics, and even a parking minder feature that remembers where you are parked, even if you forget.
Comfort Features
While you are using that great technology, you are also going to stay comfortable behind the wheel of the Rio. It's loaded with the great comfort options like heated front leather seats, leather steering wheel and a sunroof.
Plus it looks great as well with options like alloy wheels, side mirror turn signal indicators, fog lights and even a rear spoiler.
The Rio is offered in nine exterior color choices and six different interior color or fabric choices.
Fuel Savings
The 2016 Kia Rio has an EPA estimated 37 MPG on the highway. So when you upgrade to a new Rio, you will notice the fuel savings from your first fill-up. Under the hood it has 1.6L GI I4 engine that produces 138 horsepower. With an upgraded Eco Package on the EX trim, you'll get even more fuel savings from the idle stop and go system. That means when the car is stopped in traffic or stopped at a red light; the engine will shut off so you're not burning unnecessary fuel. The Rio is also one of the few remaining vehicles to offer a six-speed manual transmission option.
