2014 Kia Rio Overview

New/Notable:
  • Available as a four-door (sedan) or five-door (hatchback)
  • Related to the Hyundai Accent
  • Starts at under $14,000
Subcompact car shoppers generally look for two things: a low price and good fuel economy. The 2014 Kia Rio delivers on both of those fronts, with plenty of standard features and a stylish exterior to boot.

The Rio is sold in two varieties, a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback for those who want some extra cargo room. From the outside, the Rio’s styling, which was updated two years ago, will look familiar to many due to Kia putting the same styling cues into many of its vehicles including that front grille which is becoming a brand signature.

The front-wheel drive Rio is powered by a 138-hp, 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine that features direct injection and is paired with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. On premium SX models, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters are included with the automatic transmission. The available Active Eco system modifies the throttle response and transmission shifting to maximize fuel economy. The Rio achieves 27/37 mpg city/highway with both transmission options.

Inside, the Rio offers plenty of standard features especially for a car in this price range. A USB/auxiliary audio input, satellite radio, cruise control, air conditioning, and a 60/40-split rear seat are standard. Higher trim levels offer plenty of tech options, including the Microsoft-powered UVO infotainment system and Bluetooth connectivity. A navigation system with live traffic updates is available, as is push button start with a smart key.

The 2014 Rio’s standard safety features include six airbags, antilock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, and electronic stability control. Hill start assist provides safety when starting on steep inclines and vehicle stability management provides steering direction control capability. Side impact door beams and front/rear crumple zones provide extra protection to the driver and passengers in the event of a collision.
