Every year we get excited to see the Kia lineup slowly fill with next year’s models. Although we already loved the Kia Rio, we’re proud to see that it survived the subcompact crossover purge. We believe this proves how great of a model the Kia Rio truly is. The 2021 Kia Rio received a mild refresh that is similar to the European model. The front and rear ends received a subtle style update, and both the sedan and hatchback versions got an enhanced infotainment system.
The 2021 Kia Rio is available in three models: LX sedan, S sedan, and S hatchback. Today, we will be focusing on the subcompact sedan version of the Kia Rio. Both trim levels of this sedan will provide you with a long list of standard and available features. The optional S Technology Package will let you enjoy even more features.
