For 2019, Kia has decreased the Rio lineup to just two models (LX and S) and dropped the manual trans. The updates mean the highest point of-the-line EX variant is dead and the base cost has increased from $14,795 to $16,195. Although the base model cannot be had with any alternative packages, the more costly S adaptation incorporates the Technology package that adds LED headlights, forward-impact warning and automated crisis braking, an upgraded infotainment framework, and an improved gauge group. Rio’s spacious interior brushes away subcompact car blues with its comfortable front seats, enough room in the back for adults, and a well-made, quality feel. Standard infotainment on the Rio LX is decent. The 2019 Rio is available as either a sedan or a hatchback. The two share a deliberate front end, with their wide front grille and cleared back headlights. From the side, the Rio sedan is conventional, while the hatchback’s long roof gives it a sportier flair. Both tail closes are tasteful and straightforward and look a couple of bucks above their reasonable costs of passage.
