2021 Kia Rio Performance And Price Calgary





For 2021, the Kia Rio is only going to be offered in the subcompact hatchback design in Calgary and other Canadian markets. The hatchback features elegant simplicity inside and out--the affordable price of the Rio does not mean that it lacks in features.

Drivers are treated to a refined ride and composed handling that make the Kia Rio an excellent choice as a daily driver, especially given its 6.6 L/100km combined fuel economy.

Rio for Sale





The 2021 Kia Rio received a slight style refresh with restyled front and rear ends on the exterior, as well as an enhanced infotainment system. It comes standard with SiriusXM, Bluetooth, charging ports, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

The Rio does not feature a suite of driver-assist technology, but it does come standard with a rearview backup camera and is available with blind spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, and automated emergency braking.

Advanced features include the available Smart Key with push-button ignition and UVO Intelligence that allows a smartphone to control several vehicle features, including remote start and climate control.



The interior of the 2021 Kia Rio is clean, simple, and easy-to-use. The intuitive layout allows drivers to use the climate and audio controls with ease. The overall appearance is mature and sophisticated, which is in contrast with the competition whose interiors are not as refined.

The 2021 Kia Rio offers a good amount of space for a subcompact vehicle with the front seat featuring more than adequate space. However, the rear seat is better suited to children than adults due to restricted legroom. The hatchback design offers more cargo space than standard subcompact sedans.





The 2021 Kia Rio is only available in the hatchback design for Canadian buyers. It features fun and flirty looks with a rounded hood, tiger-nose grille, and wrap-around headlights. The overall design includes bold, strong lines that offer modern styling while improving aerodynamics.

The 2021 Kia Rio, with its excellent styling and performance, was named the Best Subcompact Car by AutoTRADER Canada.
