The 2018 Kia Rio Sedan is a subcompact sedan offered in 3 trims, starting off at a base MSRP of $13,900. For that price, it mainly competes with the Hyundai Accent Sedan, the Ford Fiesta Sedan, and the Nissan Versa Sedan. Between 3 trims, the Rio Sedan offers 2 powertrains. It is a 1.6L inline-4 engine making 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft of torque. However, there is a choice between a 6-speed manual transmission and a 6-speed automatic transmission. The Rio Sedan reaches 60 MPH from zero in 9.8 seconds with the automatic transmission, which gets pumped up to 9.2 seconds with the manual. The Rio Sedan manages a combined fuel economy of 32 MPG. While we’re on the topic of choices, the 8 striking colors the Rio Sedan comes in really pull you towards itself.
