2021 Kia Rio


2021 Kia Rio is the first Kia model to use light hybrid technology with gasoline-electric combination. In the system called EcoDynamics +, the brand’s new Smartstream 1.0 liter T-GDi three-cylinder engine is used. Having the same (100 or 120 horsepower) power outputs as the previous Kappa engine, the unit’s powerful version produces 200 Nm of torque. Vehicles equipped with the Drive Mode Select system have three different driving modes: Eco, Sport and Normal. These versions use the new Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT).

It is also possible to opt for the 2021 Kia Rio with petrol engines outside of the lightweight hybrid system. These include 1.0 horsepower 1.0 liter T-GDi and 84 horsepower 1.2 liter atmospheric engines. The unit with turbo support is combined with a 6-speed manual transmission as standard, while a 7-speed DCT is available as an option.

Kia Rio, which has renewed security technologies, also has advanced driver assistance systems. Features such as advanced collision avoidance assistant with pedestrian, vehicle and bicycle sensing feature, lane tracking assistant, driver attention warning and blind spot warning system. In addition, intelligent speed limit warning, intelligent cruise control, rear cross traffic assist and rear passenger alarm are among the security technologies of 2021 Kia Rio.
