Model News

Changes to the 2009 Kia Rio are few, and include a slightly revised instrument cluster and the addition of Sirius satellite radio and a digital input jack to the entire lineup.


Model Highlights

All 2009 Kia Rio models are powered by a 110-horsepower, 1.6L four-cylinder engine, matched with either a 5-speed manual of 4-speed automatic transmission, and all are front-wheel drive. With the 5-speed manual, the Rio returns 32 mpg city, 35 mpg highway in the EPA cycle.

The fun-to-drive aspects are emphasized in the Rio's economical design. The engine utilizes continuously variable valve timing for responsiveness, while the power steering is engine-speed-sensitive. The suspension is tuned for a smooth ride and crisp control, with MacPherson struts and a stabilizer bar in front, combined with a semi-independent setup in back.

The Rio has more interior space than most cars its size and also has a generous 11.9 cubic feet of cargo space in the sedan, 15.8 cubic feet for the Rio5. When the Rio5's split-folding back seat is in the forward flat position, cargo space is expanded to nearly 50 cubic feet. Inside, all models have an 8-way adjustable driver's seat with fold-down armrest, a versatile center-stack storage tray, and rear mesh seatback pockets.

A full set of side airbags--front seat-mounted side air bags and full-length side-curtain bags--are both standard. Electronic stability control is not available, and anti-lock brakes are optional on LX and SX models but not available on the base model.

The Rio is available in 3 different trims--a price-oriented base model, the LX, which includes many popular features, and the sportier SX, which adds a sporty appearance and feel along with some extra conveniences. All models come with a rear defroster and dual 12-volt power outlets, as well as Sirius satellite radio and a digital input jack. LX models add air conditioning, tilt steering, a CD sound system, plus adjustable rear headrests and split-folding rear seats. SX models add a dash of style with red-stitched gray sport seats and door trim, metal accents for the dash and doors, and a leather trimmed steering wheel and shift knob.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Kia Rio is one of the lowest-priced cars for sale in the U.S., and it is also one of the more fuel-efficient, with a city EPA rating of 32 mpg. It also stands out for its nicely tuned suspension, which offers a less choppy ride than many other small cars, and for its generous interior space. According to Kia, the Rio sedan's 92.2 cubic feet of passenger volume is larger than either the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla.

The Rio is also especially attractive for its warranty coverage--Kia offers a 5-year or 60,000-mile limited warranty, 10 years or 100,000 miles on powertrain, and 5 years or 60,000 miles of roadside assistance.

Low base price; outstanding fuel efficiency; spacious interior; assured ride; maneuverability; long warranty.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
