Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE features a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be concerned about a stiff ride, though the SE remains relatively comfortable on the road. The SE is also a good bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you receive for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide selection of options, to help you pick and choose those that are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs may be all the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the Top Kia Rio Style. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the Top Kia Rio Style is just a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with a lot of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to choose from.
As has been the case for a time, you may get the Top Kia Rio Style with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a more powerful V6, or you may get the miserly Top Kia Rio Style Hybrid. On the highway, the Top Kia Rio Style is comfortable and compliant. Top Kia Rio Style also offers two sporty versions that infuse the Top Kia Rio Style with a little extra personality. Inside, the Top Kia Rio Style provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you go with one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to pick from across the way.
The Top Kia Rio Style is as competent as they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content makes it supremely simple to drive. If you’re trying to find something with a little more class and space than a small sedan, the Top Kia Rio Style might you need to be the sedan for you.
The Top Kia Rio Style is the base trim. It comes with a relatively light load of features that includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every Top Kia Rio Style Safety Sense, which really is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a vehicle alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a larger 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features located on the upper trim levels may be included with the low trim levels as options. Other notable options add a sunroof, a JBL sound system combined with an integral navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the Top Kia Rio Style stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the rear seat is simple to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make a lot of people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is ideal for concealing items but features a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is really a decent size, and you will find modest door pockets in leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The Top Kia Rio Style features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles allow it to be easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount an automobile seat, with obvious and easy to get at lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s enough space so that the front seat do not need to be scooted completely forward.
