2019 Kia Rio Introduction

The subcompact Kia Rio sedan and hatchback began its fourth generation in 2018 with a stylish new body and modest new engine, and for 2019 there are few changes.

Automatic emergency braking and LED headlights are available on the top S model, although not the base LX sedan. The former 6-speed transmission has been dropped.

The well-made Rio boasts a composed ride and relatively roomy back seat. It’s also more stylish than the average economy car.

The Rio’s fuel economy is good, with an EPA-rated 28 mpg city, 37 highway, 32 combined.

The IIHS gives its Top Safety Pick rating to a Rio with the optional automatic emergency braking and LED headlights. The NHTSA hasn’t crash-tested it yet.
