2016 Kia Rio

New 2016 Kia Rio at Tyler Automotive Kia for Niles, MI

The 2016 Kia Rio is one of a handful of cars that has helped guide the brand to a legitimate alternative to the Japanese brands. The Rio is about midway through its second generation, so Kia saw it fit to give the sedan a light refresh to better match its hatchback counterpart. The 2016 model shows off revised fascias in front and back, and also has a mesh-patterned grilled that is similar to that found on the Optima and Soul.

Under the Rio's Hood

Power for both the sedan and the hatchback comes from the same naturally aspirated 138 horsepower 1.6 liter 4-cylinder as before. In the sedan, its 123 pound-feet of twist are funneled to the front wheels via either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic.

Design of Kia Rio

The new Rio has a more sophisticated look with a restyled, narrow grille that brings it in line with the Soul and Optima, more angular headlights and additional satin-finish trim. In back, there's redesigned taillights pushed farther to the corners for a more dynamic look. Two new colors, Urban Blue and Digital Yellow, join the color palette for 2016. The refresh is led by revised front and rear fascias, the Rio adopting the corporate geometric grille mesh pattern seen on the Optima and the Soul. The headlamps get moved slightly inward imparting a more contemporary vibe, and new fog-light surrounds with satin bezels encircle projector lenses.
