The Kia Rio features an advanced mild hybrid powertrain, giving you low-emission everyday driving. By pairing the latest 1.0 T-GDi gasoline engine with a 48-volt lithium-ion battery, it can reduce fuel consumption levels. What’s more, the integrated ‘e-system’ recovers kinetic energy during deceleration phases to provide torque assistance when accelerating. (Available on the '3' and 'GT-Line S' grades)
It’s time to use your smartphone in the car in a smarter way. With Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™, everything on your phone goes directly to your car’s built-in display: maps, calls, texts, apps, you name it. ('2' upwards)
The Kia Connect (UVO) app⁵ revolutionises the level of control and peace of mind afforded to you: Check your car’s fuel level or current location, and should you find its doors are not locked, close them remotely right away. The Kia Connect (UVO) app on your smartphone also gives you access to a wide range of diagnostic data about your Rio and can even guide you the way by foot to your final destination after you parked your car.
