With the 2019 Kia Rio hatchback only available in the top of the line S trim, standard features are quite comprehensive. Featuring a 1.6-liter inline-four-cylinder motor producing 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque, it’s combined with Kia’s own six-speed Sportmatic automatic transmission. With Kia’s decision to drop its manual offering, there aren’t any other configurations available this year around.
Standard features include a seven-inch touchscreen AM/FM radio, Bluetooth connectivity, rearview camera, manual air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry with alarm and dedicated trunk release, cruise control with steering wheel controls, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. All for the MSRP of $16,190.
