First introduced in 1999––the same year Sherwood Kia opened––the Rio has been many things over the years but currently takes the form of a five-door hatchback. It is a subcompact model, which means it can easily fit into a wide range of lifestyles, even if you don't have the money or space for a large vehicle. One thing that has always set the Rio apart is how inexpensive it is, making it incredibly practicable and approachable for many drivers. Yet, despite its low price, the Rio has always been fun to drive, so you do not sacrifice enjoyment for your budget.
Since its introduction, the Rio has been through four generations. The first generation was released in Canada for 2001 and ran through 2005. A second generation ran from 2006 to 2011, while a third generation went from 2012 to 2017. The fourth generation of the Kia Rio launched for 2018 and has been a fantastic choice for a wide range of drivers––plus, a facelift for the 2021 model year made this great car even more stylish. If you are looking for a reliable and affordable hatchback that will treat you well for many years, then the Kia Rio is a great choice, particularly a model from the current generation.
When looking for a Kia Rio that will best meet your needs, deciding between a new or used model is essential. A brand-new Rio is a great choice that provides you with the latest features and options, plus the low starting price makes the Rio an excellent pick for a wide range of buyers. This is a subcompact car, so it might not be ideal if you have a large or growing family, but it is still a fantastic choice for many drivers. The engine in a new Rio has enough power to make it fun to drive, and its interior is surprisingly sophisticated.
Best of all, with a brand-new Rio, you can have tremendous confidence in your vehicle and know it is well cared for. Kia models come with fantastic factory warranty coverage, so if anything goes wrong, you can rest easy since your investment is protected. As long as you stick to the service schedule set by Kia, a new Rio will last you many years and provide you with a reliable ride day after day. Here at Sherwood Kia, our certified service center and comfortable lounge make it easy for you to keep your Rio running beautifully.
Not much changed for the 2023 Kia Rio, but not much needed to change since this was already one of the best starting vehicles on the market. You get a 1.6L four-cylinder engine in the Rio that delivers 120 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque, which comes paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). With the IVT, this engine gives the 2023 Rio an estimated fuel efficiency of 7.2 L/100 km in the city and 6.1 L/100 km on the highway. The Rio will save you money upfront and help keep your gas costs low for many years ahead.
Inside the Kia Rio, you will find an interior that is far more luxurious and comfortable than you might expect from its modest price. Every trim comes with heated front seats, folding rear seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Higher trims add some premium touches, like a heated steering wheel and leather-wrapped shift knob. A 20 cm infotainment display is standard on all trims, along with a six-speaker sound system and remote keyless entry. The 2023 Rio is also incredibly safe, with available driver-assist features that include a Blind-Spot Collision Warning, a Lane Keep Assist System, and Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist.
Even though the Kia Rio is one of the most affordable vehicles on the market, we know that a brand-new Rio is still not the right choice for everyone. Even if your budget allows for a new vehicle, you may prefer to skip out on initial depreciation by choosing a pre-owned model. A used Kia Rio is a fantastic option for many drivers because it makes the already incredibly affordable Rio even more budget-friendly while still providing excellent features and options. Plus, since Kia vehicles are so highly regarded for long-term performance and reliability, you know that a used Rio can still give you many kilometres and years of service.
When shopping for a used Kia Rio, it is very important that you choose a dealership you know you can trust to ensure you get a vehicle that is in excellent shape. You cannot always know what previous owners might have done to a vehicle, but here at Sherwood Kia, we thoroughly inspect every used model we offer to make sure it looks great. This means you can shop for a pre-owned Kia Rio with confidence and know that the model we sell you will last you for many years. However, it is important to keep in mind the changes from one model year and generation to the next, as this can impact the features and performance you get from your Rio.
Here at Sherwood Kia, we believe you deserve the best shopping experience possible, so you drive away completely happy in a fantastic car. Our approach is simple: we come to work every day with the goal of giving our customers the best experience we can. We strive to offer you a friendly, small-town atmosphere with a big-city inventory. For instance, you can enjoy complimentary Starbucks coffee and much more in our comfortable and spacious lounge. You deserve a better experience when shopping for your next vehicle––you deserve to have one of our knowledgeable and friendly salespeople work with you and get you just what you need.
