What You Will Like

The Rio is Kia's least-expensive entry in their lineup. Prices start at just above $15,000 for the sedan, while the 5-door adds about $300 to that price. Styling for this generation is clean and sophisticated with Kia neatly incorporating its family grill into the car's front fascia. Competitors include other subcompacts such as the Honda Fit, the Ford Fiesta and the Toyota Yaris. While those cars tend to remind buyers that they're dealing with simple, bare-bones transportation, the Rio offers enough comfort, convenience and sophistication to feel a little bit classier, all while undercutting those rivals on price.

What's New For 2019

After being re-designed in 2018 the new 2019 Kia Rio drops the EX trim level and bumps up the previously mid-level S trim to top of the pack. The Rio boasts Apply CarPlay or Android Auto as newly standard equipment and is now only offered with an automatic transmission.

Warranty

  • Basic Warranty: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 10 Years / 100,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 5 Years / 60,000 Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Introduction

The subcompact Kia Rio sedan and hatchback began its fourth generation in 2018 with a stylish new body and modest new engine, and for 2019 there are few changes.

Automatic emergency braking and LED headlights are available on the top S model, although not the base LX sedan. The former 6-speed transmission has been dropped.

The well-made Rio boasts a composed ride and relatively roomy back seat. It’s also more stylish than the average economy car.

The Rio’s fuel economy is good, with an EPA-rated 28 mpg city, 37 highway, 32 combined.

The IIHS gives its Top Safety Pick rating to a Rio with the optional automatic emergency braking and LED headlights. The NHTSA hasn’t crash-tested it yet.

Lineup

The base Rio LX sedan costs about $16,200 and comes with cloth upholstery, power windows and locks, a 5.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment with Bluetooth and a USB port, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, and heated exterior mirrors. Its warranty is excellent: a 5-year, 60,000-mile warranty augmented by 10-year, 100,000-mile coverage for the engine and transmission.

The Rio S comes as either a $17,800 sedan or $18,100 hatchback, with a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, keyless entry, cruise control, and a split-folding rear seat. An available $800 package includes forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, LED headlights, and a 3.5-inch display in the instrument cluster.

Walkaround

Reflecting some style of its big brother the Kia Stinger, the Rio’s looks are a notch above other subcompacts. There is a purposeful face with wide grille and sweeping headlamps, and a simple, tasteful rear end. The profile of the sedan is conventional, while the longer roof of the hatchback looks more sporty.

Interior

The simple dashboard, wide and with three climate controls, is Audi-like. The touchscreen, like a tablet computer, is mounted high on the dash. The larger infotainment touchscreen is blessed with smartphone compatibility alone, while its software works well and includes smartphone app-based features such as remote start and diagnostics.

Despite the lack of soft-touch trim, the low-sheen look of the cabin is pleasant. There is good storage for small items, with deep door pockets and slots for phones near the USB port in the center console.

The rugged fabric upholstery is either black or gray with a busy design; leather and heating aren’t available, but the manual adjustment offers enough positions for different-sized bodies. The front seats are comfortable, while the room in the rear is better than average: very good for two people.

The trunk of the sedan holds 13 cubic feet, which is good for a subcompact. But the hatchback makes far more sense, with its cargo bay of 17.4 cubic feet that grows to nearly 33 cubic feet with the rear seat folded.

Driving Impressions

The 1.6-liter inline-4 makes 130 horsepower and 119 pound-feet of torque, which is enough to provide adequate acceleration for its light weight, especially on around-town spurts, and it doesn’t need to be revved a lot, except maybe on longer hills to keep the momentum from lagging. The 6-speed automatic transmission is a good partner, providing shifts that are fairly quick and sharp.

We like the way the Rio rides on its standard 15-inch steel wheels that take bumps in stride. It’s firm and composed, while still being soft enough for city driving.

The Rio’s thick three-spoked steering wheel, the same one used on sportier Kias like the Stinger, feels good. The steering is well-weighted and precise, though the road feel is minimal. On a twisty road at modest speeds, the Rio is composed and confident; its tires are narrow, designed to deliver fuel mileage, not aggressive grip. The brakes work well, even without rear discs.

Summary

A fully-loaded Kia Rio S hatchback, at about $19,000, is a more compelling value than a large majority of small cars. Its looks are stylish, the cabin is plain but comfortable, and the hatchback has excellent cargo space. Add in Kia’s excellent warranty coverage, and the 2019 Rio is a new-car bargain.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
