2016 Kia Rio 4-Door Sedan & 5-door Hatchback in Kamloops
The new 2016 Kia Rio is efficient, stylish and fun to drive everything you want in a small car. When it was first redesigned in 2012, it quickly won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award, and the Rio continues to refine its great looks and practicality for 2016. The new Rio is available as either a 4-door sedan or 5-door hatchback. Despite its small car appearance, the Rio has a “big-car” interior loaded with features and style.
Rio Vs The Competition

With a long list of standard features and the protection of Kia’s standard 5-year/100,000 km comprehensive warranty, the 2016 Rio has all the bases covered.

Kia Rio Exterior Design
The Kia Rio takes inspiration from the lines of the luxurious Kia Optima sedan and compresses them into a compact form that is as versatile as it is visually appealing. The new look was the idea of celebrated European auto designer Peter Schreyer who joined Kia in 2006. As a winner of the Red Dot Design Award, it’s clear that the Rio’s appearance is catching attention.
Kia Rio Safety
Take comfort in knowing that wherever you drive the Kia Rio, you will travel in complete safety. Standard safety features include six airbags, a reinforced body structure, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), while available features include a sophisticated rear-parking camera (Rio 4-door EX or SX), automatic headlights, and even an automatic defogging system to improve visibility.
