2016 Kia Rio

Kia Rio is definitely one of the company’s most popular models. It is a subcompact car, available both as sedan and hatchback. Original model was launched in 2000 and so far, we have seen three generations of it. Current-generation model was released in 2011 and it is expected that it will be replaced in near future. However, that won’t be before 2017 for sure, so 2016 year model will carry on in the same style. It will have pretty much the same characteristics as current model but still, it is expected that company will make some modifications that will make this model competitive until fourth-generation Rio come.

2016 Kia Rio changes

The 2016 Kia Rio will come with pretty much same outside look as current model. Although basic styling will remain, it is expected that company will make some minor modifications, especially on the front end. Parts like grille and bumper will come with some tweaks, but not drastically changed. Beside this small tweaks, we don’t expect anything more. When it is about interior, 2016 Rio will come totally unchanged, except there is a possibility that we will see some new standard features. Same thing is with the trims – new Kia Rio will come in already known LX, EX and SX variants.

The first one is capable to output 138 horsepower and 123 lb-ft of torque, while the smaller engine is good enough for 108 horses and 101 lb-ft of twist.
