Rio Update from Phoenix Kia Research

Affordable, capable and fuel efficient, the 2014 Kia Rio contains everything a buyer could want in a subcompact car. Its aerodynamic design and athletic stance appeal to the masses, attracting an array of curious car enthusiasts from around the globe. Combined with an interior that is comfortable, spacious and equipped with a collection of high-end technological functions, the Rio is a quality vehicle for first-time buyers who want a little more for their buck. Read on for a brief overview of the 2014 Kia Rio in Phoenix, then continue below for more information on its unique specifications.


Offered in a sedan and 5-door hatchback variant, the Kio Rio aims to satisfy its diverse fanbase and open itself up to new buyers. Both leg- and headroom are generous in each model, but for frequent travelers, the hatchback is the way to go. While cargo space is sufficient in the sedan with 13.7 cubic feet, the hatchback provides additional room for belongings, delivering 15.0 cubic feet. Aside from its spacious cabin, the 2014 Rio comes with an abundance of available amenities, including steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, a UVO infotainment system, rear camera, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.


Building on fuel economy, the Rio is the first non-hybrid car to offer ISG technology. The state-of-the-art enhancement improves fuel efficiency by turning off the engine when the car has come to a complete stop, and then starting back up when the driver steps off the brake and accelerates. Powering the subcompact car is an eco-friendly 1.6L gasoline direct-injection four-cylinder engine, exerting 138 horsepower. The powertrain can be paired with either a six-speed automatic or manual transmission and provides impressive EPA ratings praised by many 2014 Kia Rio reviews.
