Updates for the 2022 Kia Rio

The subcompact sedan and hatchback 2022 Kia Rio will likely receive many alluring updates for the newest model year. While there is not much information released yet, we want to give you an idea of what to expect when the 2022 Kia Rio gets to our showroom. We are excited to help you see if waiting for the 2022 Kia Rio is the best choice for your next vehicle.

The Kia Rio is currently available in the LX and S trims. We don't think there will be much change to the trim lineup for the upcoming model year.

Interior Features & Design

The Kia Rio recently had connectivity features added as standard, which makes it likely to carry over into the next model year. Wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are two of the new features, keeping you connected to everything you need for the road ahead. Media can be controlled through the eight-inch touchscreen that is centrally located on the dashboard. Full interior updates have not been released, but these are the most likely features to stay equipped.

The interior of the Kia Rio has never been known to be spacious, but subcompact models aren't a spacious class. The sleek and small model maximizes efficiency and helps get you through any busy roads along the route. We encourage you to visit our dealership to get inside the Kia Rio so that you can see what the interior offers. Cosmetic changes are expected, but we don't think the dimensions will be heavily altered.


Exterior Features & Design

It is expected that the 2022 Kia Rio will go in the direction of the new Kia K5, adding sharp lines and innovative angles. The new Kia emblem is meant to be more futuristic, which is leading the entire update process for the brand. You can expect the 2022 Kia Rio to have the distinct features we have come to enjoy, but with a modern twist.

The Kia Rio is the only Kia model available as a sedan and hatchback. We will work with you to decide which suits your lifestyle. We expect these choices to remain the same for the 2022 Kia Rio, giving drivers the versatility needed for any occasion.


Performance Options

It would make sense for the 2022 Kia Rio to maintain the currently equipped engine. The four-cylinder makes up to 120 horsepower and provides up to 36 MPG combined. Up to 41 MPG highway makes the Kia Rio a top choice for anyone who has a long commute.

There is a continuously variable automatic transmission currently equipped on the Kia Rio, and we suspect this will be the transmission that comes on the 2022 Kia Rio. This transmission provides a smooth and dependable performance for any road or highway.

Technology & Safety

The Kia Drive Wise Driver Assist Technology package came standard for the 2021 Kia Rio, leading us to believe that the same will be equipped for the 2022 Kia Rio. Having some of the most advanced safety features watching the road around you will instill confidence, no matter how busy your commute gets. We are excited to show you everything this package comes with, making sure you will see how innovative and advanced the 2022 Kia Rio will be.

The 2022 Kia Rio is designed with safety in mind. Front and rear crumple zones, Electronic Brake-Force Distribution, and more come on every model. No matter if you drive alone or with passengers, you will know every precaution is taken when you choose the Kia Rio.
