2023 Kia Rio 5-Door | Now in Cambridge

The 2023 Kia Rio 5-Door is set to mark this popular subcompact car's final year of production. While other models are set to replace it, this iconic vehicle will be missed. Here's all you need to know about this fantastic vehicle.

Notable Changes From the Previous Year

While there are no significant changes from the previous year, the 2023 Rio has one notable addition - a new oil-level sensor that will alert the driver when it's time to replenish the oil. This small but helpful feature demonstrates Kia's commitment to enhancing the driving experience.

Infotainment and Technology Features

The 2023 Rio comes well-equipped with a range of infotainment and technology features to keep drivers connected and entertained on the road. The standard 8.0-inch touchscreen offers seamless integration with Apple and Android smartphones, allowing wireless mirroring options. For those looking for a step up in features, the S trim level offers an optional upgraded infotainment system with Kia's UVO telematics system and SiriusXM satellite radio.

Exterior Design

The 2023 Kia Rio boasts a sleek and stylish exterior design that is both modern and eye-catching. Features such as daytime running lights and automatic headlights enhance visibility and safety on the road. Variable-speed intermittent wipers provide optimal control in varying weather conditions.

Interior Comfort and Cargo Space

The 2023 Kia Rio inside the cabin offers a comfortable, well-designed space for drivers and passengers. The dashboard presents a clean, easy-to-use layout, with climate and audio controls easily accessible. While there is some hard plastic, it is nicely textured, and the overall interior appearance gives a mature and sophisticated impression for a subcompact car. Additionally, the Rio offers a generous cargo volume of 929 litres with the rear seats folded down, allowing for versatile storage options to suit various needs.

Engine and Performance Features

A 1.6-litre I4 engine powers the 2023 Rio. This engine delivers a horsepower of 120 and torque of 113 lb-ft. The Rio has front-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual transmission that offers smooth and responsive shifting. With its nimble handling and efficient performance, the Rio is a reliable companion in city driving and on the open road.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

While the 2023 Kia Rio may not have as many driver-assistance technologies as some of its rivals, it still offers a range of safety features to ensure the well-being of its occupants. Available forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking systems help prevent accidents by alerting the driver and applying the brakes when necessary. Lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist systems are also available, providing additional assistance to drivers on long journeys or during moments of distraction.
