    08/07/15, via Daily Commercial

    Both body styles were redesigned for 2006 with the wagon name changing to Rio5. Common to both was a 110-horsepower four-cylinder powerplant that was available with a five-speed automatic transmission or optional four-speed automatic. Following a

    04/21/11, via Car and Driver

    Kia's subcompact, the Rio, has always been misleadingly named. A more appropriate—but admittedly less alluring—moniker would have been the Kia Des Moines: a fine enough place to spend a few hours, so long as you can get out after that. With the 2012

    With the 2012 Kia Rio, Kia has proven that reasonably priced subcompact cars don't have to suck. The Rio name has been around since 2001, and before the 2012 model year arrived, the Rio hadn't been redesigned since 2006. This year's all-new car,

2012 Kia Rio5 SX - Car and Driver (blog)

This might have been why the locals gave us funny looks as we drove from downtown Seoul to the country’s east coast in a bright red 2012 Rio5 (U. S. -spec, of course). Or it could be that those onlookers were simply noticing that the Kia Rio now has presence. The Rio is one of the last of Kia’s offerings to get a full styling overhaul. ) This longer, lower, and wider 2012 Rio once again shares its platform with the Hyundai Accent , which was itself stretched and massaged into something more attractive for 2012. On looks alone, we’d take the Rio. It helps that the Rio5, which we’ve now had the chance to sample in Korea and test here in the U. S. , gets a more expressive front end than its four-door counterpart. Kia continues to fight its econocar label with the Rio and does a pretty good job with that misdirection, especially in the cabin. When it comes to equipment, Kia has the upper end of this lower end of the market in its sights, with available keyless entry and start, heated front seats, a rearview camera, leather seats, and power-folding side mirrors. Unlike the Hyundai, the Rio even offers a touchscreen nav system. The Accent and the Rio do share powertrains. Source: www.caranddriver.com

2012 Kia Rio / Rio5 - Car and Driver

When the outgoing Rio launched, a Kia exec was proud to report that the car would still offer U. S. customers the option of hand-cranked windows. We're happy to say that, while new Rios still will be available with crank windows, the company has higher-tech ways of making the Rio easy on owners' wallets. First, out comes the old 1. 6-liter four-cylinder boat anchor, which made 110 hp, and in goes a new 1. 6-liter that uses direct injection to crank out 138 hp. Of more interest to the frugally minded, Kia is estimating that the engine will be good... That means that, in addition to meeting the magic 40-mpg rating (Kia's ad agency will no doubt be thrilled), the Rio will join its sibling, the equally new Hyundai Accent , and the upcoming Chevy Sonic at the top of the horsepower ratings for the... While the Rio probably won't be as slender as the 2291-pound Mazda, Kia does tell us that the engine in its new subcompact is 29 pounds lighter than was its counterpart in the previous car. The new Rio will be offered as a sedan or a five-door hatchback (known as Rio5), and in three trim levels: LX, EX, and SX. Both body styles will be offered with the choice of manual or automatic gearboxes packing. Source: www.caranddriver.com

First Test: 2012 Kia Rio 5-Door EX - MotorTrend Magazine

The Rio small sedan and hatch's new to the Rio platform has a longer wheelbase -- 101. 2 inches as opposed to the outgoing car's 98. 4 -- and the hatch is wider by 1 inch, longer by 1. 2 inches, and sits 0. 6-inch lower. The Rio 5-door (the name also changed for 2012) may be longer than the 2011 Rio5, but its overall length is 12. 6 inches shorter than the 2012 Rio sedan. While the Rio still is powered by a 1. 6-liter four, this one is Hyundai/Kia's all-new, DOHC unit with direct injection and four valves per cylinder. Horsepower has increased from 110 to 138, and torque went from 107 to 123. A six-speed manual transmission is offered, but only on the base LX. The six-speed automatic is standard on the EX and SX, optional with the LX. The horsepower and torque... We recently took a 5-door Rio tester to the track, where it reached 60 mph in 8. 9 seconds and completed the quarter mile in 16. 7 seconds at 83. 5 mph. Motor Trend's most recent test of the previous Rio5 was of a 2006 SX with the five-speed manual. The new Rio's 10. 1-inch vented front discs are the same size as before, but the rear drums have been replaced by. Source: www.motortrend.com
