Strong Style

A sporty rear spoiler and bold lines give the 2015 Kia Rio 5-door review a distinctive edge in style. The Kia Rio 5-door SX’s robustly styled, 17-inch alloy wheels that fill the wheel housings and its beltline that slopes strongly downward from the rear give it an athletic and low-to-the-ground performance look which conveys movement and forward motion, even when parked. Touches that you would expect to find on a luxury vehicle, such as power-folding mirrors with integrated LED turn signals are now available on the 2015 Kia Rio 5-door EX and SX. Ultra-modern LED taillights add to the Kia Rio 5-door’s distinct design when illuminated.

As you make your way inward to the 2015 Kia Rio 5-door’s spacious interior, it boasts an array of features. These include premium materials, power windows, door locks, side mirrors, illuminated vanity mirrors and SiriusXM satellite radio. Heated front seats take the chill out of winter driving and are standard on the 2015 Kia Rio 5-door EX and SX models, and optional on the Rio 5-door LXSX models also come equipped with a cooled glove box for chilling your drinks on those hot summer road trips. The 2015 Kia Rio 5-door also features a large, easy-opening tailgate that opens to reveal abundant space for groceries, luggage, cargo or whatever else you’re carrying. Folding the rear seatbacks down opens up even more cargo room. Kia’s audio infotainment system UVO is available on the 2015 Kia Rio 5-door EX and SX models, giving you a hands-free experience. The system offers voice-activated control of your music sources and cell phone. Its voice recognition software “learns” your voice and allows you to store up to two individual voice profiles.
