2022 Rio Exterior

The 2022 Kia Rio won't bowl you over with its exterior styling, but it still looks handsome in a budget-Stinger kind of way, and we certainly like it. For 2022, the Rio gets the re-styled Kia logo to complement last year's new bumper and black mesh grille. There's a set of halogen headlights up front and both the LX and S ride on 15-inch steel wheels with plastic covers. S models get the option of 15-inch alloy wheels and LED headlights.

Exterior Colors

The humble exterior of the 2022 Kia Rio Sedan is anything but shouty, and that is totally respectable, especially when you're a low to mid-range dealer that doesn't want to attract any attention from the cops and still want to save on fuel and insurance costs. The 2022 Rio is offered in your choice of six exterior paint colors. Starting from lightest to darkest, you get Clear White, Silky Silver, Steel Gray, and Aurora Black. Currant Red is possibly the most boring option, while Sporty Blue is the closest you're going to get if you want your Rio to look like a mini Stinger. However, your choice of trim dictates color availability; the base LX can only be had in Clear White, Silky Silver, and Aurora Black, with the remaining shades reserved for the S.
