The New York International Auto Show is just around the corner and automakers everywhere are preparing for what they will be presenting at the show. The Kia brand is proud to say they will be at the show. They will be premiering the all-new 2018 Kia Rio sedan and 5-door models. Want to know more about what you can expect from these vehicles? Keep reading for additional information.

The 2018 Kia Rio will be available in three trim levels: LX, S, and EX. Powering this vehicle is an enhanced Gamma 1.6-liter GDI four-cylinder engine that uses technology like high-pressure fuel system and direct injection to improve fuel economy and low-speed driving dynamics. Convenience technology features include a rear-view camera system, Bluetooth hands-free functionality, UVO3 voice recognition infotainment system, a six-speaker stereo with satellite radio, a seven-inch floating touchscreen interface, and Android Auto or Apple CarPlay to help with smartphone connectivity.

“Value has always been a core tenet for the Kia brand and the all-new Rio sedan and 5-door continue to underscore our commitment to those buyers looking for an entry-level vehicle but desire more than what the subcompact segment currently offers,” said Orth Hedrick, vice president of product planning, KMA. “This fourth-generation Rio makes significant improvements over its predecessor in design, technology, and passenger comfort, resulting in an even better value proposition for our customers, while raising the bar in the small-car segment.”
