IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 22, 2014 – Kia Motors America's 2015 Rio continues to offer spirited road manners, tremendous value and cutting-edge features. The award-winning subcompact offers an abundance of standard amenities, safety features and outstanding interior space. A combination of world-class styling and advanced technologies make the Rio line-up an exceptional value.

The Rio's previous model included changes to the engine as well as the body and rear bumper, providing improved aerodynamics. In 2014, Rio also introduced a revised smart key remote that offers a folding design for convenience and interior features including a new water temperature gauge and an enhanced leather-wrapped steering wheel.


Available in three trims – LX, EX and SX – the 2015 Rio is offered with a 1.6-liter GDI four-cylinder engine with the option of either a six-speed manual transmission (LX only) or efficient six-speed automatic. Previously available on only EX and SX trims, the 2015 model now offers LX customers the option of a six-speed automatic transmission with an Active ECO system, which optimizes fuel economy when activated. The Rio sedan produces 138 horsepower with a fuel economy rating of 27/37 mpg (city/highway)1.
