Why Choose the Kia Rio?

Wednesday, February 13th, 2019


After all the talk about Kia Motors turning into a GT automotive brand, there was a lot of speculation about which vehicles could benefit from a GT. They had to be real winners of the Kia Motors lineup. After all, it would seem that the already popular Kia Stinger sports car started the GT theme with its three “GT” trims. It didn’t take too much time for Kia to name a few winners – the 2020 Kia Soul GT, the 2019/20 Kia Forte GT, and the Kia Rio GT. We all know the Kia Soul will always be funky, and the Forte holds a bit of class. Although the Kia Rio has been around for a bit, it’s still one of those models that fly under the radar. Let’s take a look at what makes this sedan so great, and why Kia chose it for their first round of GT models.

When it comes to the U.S. market, small cars are all but dead. Big name Ford pulled all of their sedans from American shores, except for their beloved Mustang, practically giving up the game. Still, in the midst of what seems like a dying age for sedans, with a quickly saturating SUV and crossover market, Kia Motors is willing to back their Kia Rio.
