2016 Kia Rio: What’s Changed

Friday, July 24th, 2015


There wasn’t much fanfare when the 2016 Kia Rio was introduced during the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, and that lack of excitement seemed understandable. After all, the 2016 model was going to remain in the brand’s current third generation, and car enthusiasts didn’t expect many changes from last year’s car.

After taking a look at the initial specs for the 2016 Rio, it would initially appear that these enthusiasts were correct regarding the lack of change. The horsepower (138), torque (123 and engine size (1.6L/97 Regular Unleaded I-4) all remained the same. The one slight change was the slight increase in fuel economy, as highway miles per gallon increased from 37 to 38.

You’d be doing yourself a great disservice by solely focusing on the specs, however. The 2016 Kia Rio will feature a number of alterations, including changes to the interior and exterior.
