2011 Kia Rio Features

Features
While the base-model Rio strictly offers reliable transportation on a tight budget, the 2011 Kia Rio and Rio5 come well-equipped in their upper trims.

The base Rio sedan, which totals less than $13k with destination, is very simple in equipment; it includes manual winding windows, no air conditioning, and no tilt steering (no power steering at that). Step up to the LX and you'll get what most people now consider the minimum, with A/C, tilt steering, power steering, and split-folding rear seats, and you'll set the stage for Power Package that includes power locks, mirrors, and windows; keyless entry; and heated mirrors.

The Rio SX model gets a sportier suspension, alloy wheels, fog lamps, and a spoiler, plus sport seats, leather trim, and Sirius Satellite Radio. LX and SX models have a USB audio port, and while there aren't officially any factory options, a Bluetooth hands-free calling interface is available at extra cost.

Base Rio models keep it very simple, but the Rio and Rio5 LX and SX models come the way most shoppers expect.
