Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 Kia Rio

The Kia Rio has long been a popular choice for drivers looking for a reliable and affordable compact car, and the 2023 model promises to be the best one yet. With a sleek new design, advanced technology features, and improved performance, the 2023 Kia Rio is sure to turn heads and exceed expectations.

Join us as we explore all the exciting features and upgrades of this impressive new vehicle. Read on to learn more!

2023 Kia Rio Trims

You have three models to choose from if you are looking at the Rio sedan. You can choose from the LX, S, and S hatchback. The base model (Kia Rio LX) starts at $17,875 and $18,815 for the S hatchback. The several hundred-dollar difference between the trim levels is for the upgrades in the 2023 Kia Rio S models. Buyers will pay more for the Rio S to enjoy the following convenient features:

  • Adjustable headrests
  • A rear USB outlet
  • Keyless entry
  • Split-folding rear seats
  • Center armrest
  • Cruise control
  • SiriusXM satellite radio

Kia Rio Interior

The 2023 Kia Rio maintains a simple but exquisite interior. There is plenty of nicely textured plastic, making it an easy-to-clean vehicle. The overall interior appearance is designed with class-leading passenger comfort. You can buy the Hatchback if you want a Kia Rio with a bigger passenger space or cargo room.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The vehicle uses a 1.6-liter-four engine. Unfortunately, if you are looking for a car with more than one transmission, you are not in luck. Like other models, the 2023 Kia Rio model is automatic with a 120-horsepower engine that gets to 60 mph within about 8.6 seconds. However, you should never worry about fuel efficiency.

According to the EPA estimates, the 2023 Kia Rio sedan and Hatchback can achieve 32 and 41 mpg on streets and highways, respectively. However, this efficiency depends on factors such as vehicle maintenance. The vehicle’s well-tuned suspension and solid structure offer improved comfort and safety. You can travel in this subcompact car without detecting the bumps on the road.

Safety and Driver Assist Technology

2023 Kia Rio maintains its high rating on the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) top safety picks. Although an economical choice, Rio does not compromise safety for affordability.

As the roads keep getting more dangerous and accidents rise every day, it was important for the 2023 Kia Rio S model to come with in-built safety features. While Kia vehicles remain among the safest choices, getting the 2023 Kia Rio S model with automated emergency braking and forward-collision warning can elevate your driving experience on highways and busy streets. This model also includes features such as high beam assist, lane keeping assist technology, lane following assist technology, and automatic climate control LED headlights. If you opt for the LX model, your new car still has the following basic safety features, which are available in all Kia Rio models:

  • Stability and traction control
  • electronic brake-force distributed ABS
  • Standard airbags (curtain, side, and front)
  • Tire pressure monitors
  • Hill-start assist
  • LATCH systems

Infotainment and Connectivity

Kia Rio vehicles include an easy-to-use dashboard, an 8-inch touchscreen display and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. Its touch screen offers you the latest smartphone-mirroring options. In addition, the 2023 Kia Rio improves your connectivity with your favorite devices in the car. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to utilize your devices on the vehicle display screen. You can move to hands-free voice controls by choosing the 2023 Kia Rio S models. The Kia Connect app elevates your driving experience by providing you with another level of connectivity to your smartphone to control an array of remote features — all from the touch of your fingertips.
