2023 Kia Rio 5-Door | Now in Barrie

The Kia Rio has always been popular in the subcompact car segment and is known for its affordability, reliability, and fuel efficiency. With the 2023 version, Kia has made some exciting updates and improvements, making it an even more attractive option for car buyers.

Notable Changes From the Previous Year

The 2023 Kia Rio 5-Door is the final iteration of the popular subcompact car before the new K3 sedan replaces it. While it may be the end of an era for Rio, the final model year does come with some notable changes. One such addition is an oil-level sensor that alerts the driver when the oil needs replenishment. This ensures that the Rio remains in optimal working condition throughout its final year of production.

Infotainment and Technology Features

Regarding infotainment and technology features, the Rio offers a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen display. This system has smartphone mirroring options for both Apple and Android devices, making it convenient for drivers to access their favourite apps and media on the go. An upgraded infotainment system is available on the S trim level for those who desire even more advanced features. This enhanced system includes Kia's UVO telematics system and SiriusXM satellite radio for a more comprehensive multimedia experience.

Exterior Design

On the exterior, the Kia Rio 5-Door boasts several features that enhance functionality and aesthetics. Daytime running lights and automatic headlights ensure optimal visibility, while power and heated mirrors add convenience and safety. Variable speed intermittent wipers improve the driver's visibility in varying weather conditions.

Interior Comfort and Cargo Space

Inside, the Rio offers a comfortable and well-designed interior. The dashboard is clean and user-friendly, with easily accessible climate and audio controls. While some hard plastic is present, it is nicely textured and does not detract from the overall mature and sophisticated cabin appearance. Additionally, it offers a respectable cargo volume of 929 litres with the rear seat folded down, allowing for versatile storage options.

Performance Features

The 2023 Rio 5-Door has a 1.6-litre I4 engine. This engine delivers a horsepower of 120 and a torque of 113 lb-ft, providing sufficient power for city commuting and highway driving. The Rio operates on a front-wheel-drive system paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Safety and Driver Assistance Features

Safety is a priority for Kia, and the Rio has various safety and driver-assistance features. While it may not offer as much advanced technology as some of its rivals, the Rio is available with forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking. These features provide an added layer of protection for the driver and passengers, enhancing overall safety on the road.
