2018 Kia Rio Portland Oregon

The Kia Rio has historically been known for its commitment to frugality. Whereas other models continuously push for ways to advance, thereby pushing their price tags upward, the Rio has always enthusiastically occupied its zone as “the affordable car” without any semblance embarrassment.

Does that trend continue with the 2018 Kia Rio? The answer is a resounding ‘yes’. However, despite continuing to occupy the zone of affordability, there are some interesting advancements to the 2018 Rio that are worth noting. Let’s take a look at them:

Exterior Styling

According to the suits at Kia headquarters, 90% of the 2018 Rio is new. The 2018 Rio certainly sports a more athletic and aerodynamic body than previous models, and the car is said to be lighter as well. Though nobody will confuse the Rio with a runway supermodel, this is a nice looking vehicle that you can proudly bring home to mom.

Interior Comfort

The 2018 Rio delivers an even more comfortable ride than previous Rio models. With increases cargo capacity, roomier shoulder spacing, and extended leg room, you will definitely notice the Rio has hit a growth spurt in 2018. Its average overall length of 172.6 inches and a width of 67.9 inches – both roughly one inch longer and wider than last year. That may not sound like much, but when sitting in the cockpit, an extra inch in each direction makes a significant different.


The Rio may be inexpensive, but it doesn’t cut corners on technology and safety. Standard safety features include hill-start assist control, electronic stability control, and vehicle stability management. Technology has also improved with available autonomous emergency braking, Android auto capability, and Apple CarPlay.


The Rio is consistent – and we like it that way. Rio drivers always know they’re buying a quality car for a price that makes their wallet happy. The 2018 Rio is a decisive improvement over previous models, both inside and outside, and we expect it make it to make a splash.

Cheap and cheerful is the Rio’s ambition and it does so with a style all its own. In both the sedan and the hatchback, a 130-hp 1.6-liter inline-four engine drives the front wheels through either a six-speed manual or automatic...
