Vehicle Overview

If you want a subcompact vehicle that has an answer to everyday convenience problem, you’re going to appreciate the answers supplied by the 2019 KIA Rio. With brand new LED lighting and a more sculpted frame, this is the little car that can do just about anything you want it to. It’s packed with standard features that most vehicles on the more economical side wouldn’t dream of throwing in for practically nothing. And while we also think the 2019 Nissan Versa is a perfectly fine car, it just doesn’t have the “feel-good cabin” of the 2019 KIA Rio. It’s the interior where the Rio really shines, and we’re here serving Greensboro High Point Winston Salem drivers with the key points that make the Rio stand out from the crowd.

Greensboro NC - 2019 Kia Rio's Overview

Feel That Horsepower – 2019 Kia Rio

The word powertrain has “power” built right into the word, so many people often look for horsepower when comparing vehicles. You’re not wrong to look at this feature. Efficiently transferring power to the wheels gives you more control on the road, with greater ability to accelerate and the luxury of increased reaction time on the road. The new Rio has a 1.6-liter DOHC I-4 engine, just like the 2019 Nissan Versa, but it’s the Rio that manages to edge out the Versa in horsepower. You’ll get 130 horsepower out of your Rio, a fairly large number given the size of the vehicle. The Versa only provides 109 horsepower, and that’s a significant difference. If you want a subcompact vehicle with more oomph, the 2019 Kia Rio is your answer.

Safety Counts – 2019 Kia Rio in/near Greensboro NC

Many economy cars skimp on the safety features, leaving you and your family more vulernable to accidents that driver-assist features normally help you avoid. Don’t risk your family’s safety! KIA makes it possible to get advanced safety features like Forward Collision Warning and Avoidance assist systems available to you standard, without making you pay overly large sums of money to get these life-saving features. The airbag systems in the Rio are impressive as well, giving you a healthy dose of dual front advanced airbags, dual front seat mounted side airbags, and even full-length side curtain airbags. Side impact door beams keep you even more safely surrounded by some truly impressive advanced safety features you won’t find on other economy subcompact cars like this. The Rio is one of the safest subcompact cars on the road, while the Versa provides some nice features that just don’t quite measure up. Nissan tried, but KIA delivered.
