2014 Kia Rio Features

Features

Even in its base editions, the 2014 Kia Rio offers a lot of features for the money.

Base Rio LX sedans and hatchbacks start at around $15,000 and include air conditioning, a USB port, and satellite radio. On hatchbacks you also get 15-inch wheels, a rear spoiler standard, tilt steering, steering-wheel audio controls, and split-folding rear seatbacks.

The 2014 Rio remains one of the top picks for those who want a lot of features--including leather seats and a navigation system.

If you want a manual gearbox, you'll have to stick with the base LX--one thing that some shoppers won't like about the limited ways you can get a Rio. The automatic is a $1200 option on either Rio LX.

In the middle of the lineup, the Rio EX five-door hatchback adds tilt/telescoping steering, cruise control, Bluetooth, and power windows, locks and mirrors.

The sporty SX model is the only version to come standard with Kia's UVO, which includes Microsoft-powered voice controls for phone and audio. You can option up to that system on the EX, and otherwise options on the SX include a navigation system (that replaces the UVO system), pushbutton start, leather seats, heated front seats, and a sunroof.

Other features included in Rio SX versions include 17-inch wheels, sport suspension tuning, larger front brakes, fog lamps, and power-folding heated side mirrors, and LED taillamp and headlamp accents.
