2019 Kia Rio LX Specs

Kia Rio

The LX is the ideal budget-conscious choice for those looking to own a Rio, and despite its lack of fancy features, offers the most essential equipment as standard, including all the safety features its more expensive S trim has to offer, driver assists aside that is. With no access to Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, four speakers and manual air conditioning, it works hard to make up for it by being practical and not compromising on what matters most as a budget subcompact. But it’s crucially lacking a manual gearbox, which is somewhat of a disappointment, and while many may appreciate not having to shift gears, the LX performs poorly without the option.
