Great value never looked so good

There’s more than one new car you can buy today that makes a strong case over a used car in terms of affordability, but many look every bit as affordable as they are. The 2022 Kia Rio may have a similarly affordable starting MSRP as those rivals, but it also offers a comfortable ride, excellent fuel economy, a choice of sedan and hatch body styles, an excellent infotainment system, and outstanding value for money. On top of all that, the latest Rio can also boast a class-leading warranty for ultimate peace of mind when you need to rely on your car to get you around Bassett, Danville, Rocky Mount, and Greensboro.

Trim levels and styling

The 2022 Kia Rio lineup can probably be considered as compact as the car itself. If the sedan body style is your preferred option, you have two trim levels to choose between, but if the stylish and sporty hatch is what you prefer, there’s just one well-equipped version of the subcompact Kia. The 2022 Kia Rio sedan is available as an entry-level LX and a higher-specification S trim level while the hatchback version is only available in the S trim level.

It’s entirely up to you as to which body style you prefer, but it’s probably hard to disagree that the hatchback looks like the sportier of the two Kia Rio body styles. Either way, the Rio is always a very attractive, modern, and stylish little car that shows no obvious signs of compromise to deliver its affordable price.

Powertrain and fuel economy

2022 Kia Rio powertrain and fuel economy

Kia has provided the Rio with a powertrain that’s perfectly suited to the car and the kind of driving environments it’s most likely to operate in. The powerplant under the hood of all versions of the 2022 Kia Rio is a 1.6-liter inline-four that develops 120 horsepower and 112 lb.-ft. of torque, which then goes exclusively to the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

If you put hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric cars to one side for a moment, the 2022 Kia Rio can rightfully claim to be one of the most fuel-efficient new cars you can buy right now in America, and we can all appreciate how important fuel economy is right now. It doesn’t make a difference if you have the sedan or the hatch sedan body style, the EPA rates every version of the 2022 Rio at 33 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway, and 36 mpg combined.

Features and equipment

As long as you don’t consider the lack of automatic emergency braking, a folding rear seat and keyless entry as deal-breakers, the amazingly affordable Rio LX is a very tempting option that comes with a longer list of standard features and equipment than you might expect at this price point. The Rio LX comes complete with standard automatic on/off headlights, a rear-view camera, a USB port, 12-volt outlet, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, a six-speaker audio system, air conditioning, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The higher-specification S model that comes in both sedan and hatchback versions doesn’t cost a huge amount more than the LX, but it builds on the entry model with the likes of USB charging ports, cruise control, remote keyless entry, rear-seat headrests and a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. Another reason why you might want to consider the 2022 Kia Rio S over the base model is it presents you with the opportunity to raid the options list for features like alloy wheels, Kia Connect, Smart Key with push-button start, automatic temperature control, and several of today’s more advanced active safety features.
