2020 Kia Rio: Specs, Features & Trim Comparison

2020 kia rio specs features trims

The ideal vehicle can be found in many sizes and flavors and for the city commuter, perfection normally can be found in a peppy, money-saving compact or subcompact that feels like home among the bursting city freeways and suburban roadways. The 2020 Kia Rio certainly fulfills those demands with its fuel-sipping 4-cylinder engine and remarkable driving attributes that has the potential to change rush hour into your personal happy hour.

Kia’s remarkable subcompact sedan/hatchback rolls into the new model year with a new engine/transmission combo along with some renovations to its infotainment capabilities. Last year’s 130 hp 1.6-liter 4-cylinder has been bumped for a much more fuel friendly 120 hp 1.6-liter 4-cylinder that will definitely make a positive difference on your pocketbook. Kia’s cutting edge continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) replaces the Rio’s six-speed automatic. For the infotainment upgrade you’ll find a brand-new 7.0-inch touchscreen along with standard connectivity upgrades which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.


If you’re looking for a burly, road-chewing hoss then the subcompact automotive genre isn’t where you need to be looking for your next ride. But, since you’re reading this, we’re going to assume “dependable” and “economic” are pretty high on your automotive priority list. If that assumption is right, welcome to your 120-hp, 1.6-liter, 4-cylinder CVT powered home-away-from-home. If the estimated 33 city and 44 highway gas mileage numbers do not excite you, the 2020 Kia Rio’s dynamic performance will.

Design Highlights

It’s easy to think all subcompact vehicles are created equal when you consider the cookie-cutter styles most manufacturers appear to be mired in. Kia has chosen the road-less-traveled method to the Rio’s exterior style by successfully blending “elegant” with “sporty”. Once you take your seat behind the wheel, you’ll undoubtedly be wondering what engineering sorcery is at work when you see the spacious cabin loaded with all the modern features in such an allegedly “compact” interior.


Speaking of ‘modern amenities’, you’ll be happy to see Kia’s engineers have the very same infotainment and safety priorities that you do. With the Rio’s infotainment packages, Kia’s impressive collection of technical conveniences either comes standard or is readily offered with trim upgrades including, but not limited to, a 7.0-inch touchscreen display, USB and bluetooth connectivity, Apple and Android’s proprietary application capabilities, and SiriusXM Satellite radio. On the automotive safety front, you’ll be happy to know peace of mind comes standard in the Rio with it’s IIHS Top Safety Pick score and Kia’s full selection of innovative safety technology like auto-emergency braking and forward-collision warning.

Bought a 2022 KIA SOUL on 8/08/2021 from KIA of South Austin. I dealt with Salesman Chris Flanc, who is by far the BEST Salesperson I have ever had the pleasure to meet and do business with. He was not pushy, aggressive, or rude in any way. He is the most friendly and professional person I have ever encountered, he stayed back and let us shop around and when we had a question he was there and was able to answer ALL our questions and concerns. If not for the way Chris handled himself and how he treated us, I guarantee we ...

Awesome experience. Whole process was quick and smooth. I knew what I want and Kia of South Austin team made it happen. Price was lower than others and no "surprises".
