2021 Kia Rio
Find your next Kia Rio at Covina Kia
The new Kia Rio is an outstanding compact car that does everything well and has an appealing list of features. It makes a great family vehicle for Pomona and surrounding areas. It gets quite good gas mileage and its performance feels excellent with the upgraded engine. There’s a nice mix of trims and packages to let you customize the Rio to align with what you need. It is a jack-of-all-trades car because while some other models might have a sportier feel or more space, nothing succeeds in as many different categories as the Rio. It manages all that at a reasonable price.
Get up and go.
The convention-breaking Rio continues to evolve, packing new technology and smart style into a practical subcompact sedan.

Kia Rio Model Lineup
Just two trims are offered for the 2021 Rio. The cheaper of those is the $17,045 LX, which includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, power windows and locks, and cloth upholstery.
For a few hundred dollars more, the $17,685 S sedan adds split-folding rear seats, keyless entry, cruise control, and a front armrest. It also opens up access to options like SiriusXM radio and active-safety tech. The hatchback is only offered with the S trim and starts at $17,980.
Kia Rio Exterior
The Rio is a rather plain sedan or hatchback, but Kia has given its simple styling good proportions that are easy on the eyes.
This year’s minor refresh gives the Rio slightly bigger air dams on the front bumper and a bolder lower front grille. None of this impacts the Rio’s pleasant but innocuous overall design.
Kia Rio Interior
You can’t expect glitz and glamour in a car as cheap as the Rio. Pop into the cabin and what you see and touch is simple, honest, down-to-earth. The main focus here is functionality and decent build quality, and it delivers on both quite admirably.
The seats on the Rio are manually adjusted on both trims, but they are amply cushioned and feature attractive ribbed cloth upholstery. The front-center armrest is a luxury only limited to the S trim, however.
The back seat carves out 33.5 inches of legroom, acceptable given Rio’s 101-inch wheelbase and 160-inch overall length. It is best for seating two.
The sedan holds 13.5 cubic feet of cargo, and only the LX trim features split-folding rear seats. The hatchback gets 17.4 cubic feet of space that expands to 32.8 cubes with the second row folded.
