Eastside Kia is proud to introduce the 2019 Kia Rio in Calgary. The Rio has always stood for the proposition that entry-level driving can deliver fun, style, and excitement, and for 2019 the Rio boosts its game. With standard features like power windows and door locks, a touch-screen infotainment system, and one of the most powerful engines in the subcompact class, the 2019 Rio delivers comfort, efficiency, and driving fun, all starting at the amazingly low price. Plus, the Rio was totally redesigned last year on a foundation of quality, safety, and advanced engineering, and for this year it adds new features like a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for even greater value.
The Rio's European-inspired styling brings sophistication to the subcompact car class, proving that small can be both stylish and beautiful. Its dramatic exterior features handsome and balanced proportions that you would usually expect to find on larger and much more expensive sedans. In keeping with its upscale philosophy, this design includes standard features like body-coloured, heated side-view mirrors and high-end options like LED headlights.
Inside, the value-priced luxury theme continues with a roomy and stylish interior. The passenger cabin includes standard features like heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, along with options like an available power sunroof. Optional automatic climate control allows you and your passengers to ride in comfort during every season of the year. Step up to the available leather interior for a truly luxurious experience.
A standard touch-screen 5-inch LCD audio display incorporates an integrated rear-view camera. Other high-end features include standard Bluetooth hands-free connectivity for your cell phone and available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Upgrade to the 7-inch touch screen display and you can opt for built-in navigation. Auxiliary and USB audio ports allow you to connect a USB drive or any digital music player to the stereo system, so you can bring your full playlist with you wherever you go. And for truly advanced connectivity, the Rio offers Kia's UVO Intelligence system. UVO provides vehicle diagnostics, remote services, and vehicle locating via your cell phone--no more losing your car in a crowded parking lot! UVO even lets you remotely start your Rio and activate its climate control, so it's ready to go when you are.
The Rio's suite of standard and available safety features earned it the 2019 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's "Top Safety Pick" for Rio sedans equipped with the available Forward Collision Assist as well as LED headlights. Add six standard airbags for front and side protection, a rear-view camera, and available Autonomous Emergency Braking, and the Rio is as safe as it is stylish and fun to drive.
Speaking of driving fun, every 2019 Kia Rio is powered by a 1.6-litre, 130 horsepower I4 engine, one of the most powerful in the entire subcompact class. For 2019, the Rio's powerplant channels that power to the pavement through a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) to achieve a fuel efficiency rating of 8.3 L/100 km in the city and 6.4 L/100 km on the highway.
