2017 Kia Rio Overview

Now on the market, the 2017 Kia Rio in Houston is primarily unchanged for the new model year. The SX sedan has been dropped from the lineup, but other than this modification, the Rio is untouched. As usual, the subcompact car offers a wide range of features, a great warranty and ample seating for up to five passengers. It's also equipped with an incredibly responsive engine that buyers find impressive.

A 1.6L four-cylinder, generating 138 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque, sends power to the front wheels. All versions of the 2017 Kia Rio in Houston get a six-speed automatic with the engine, aside from the LX, which comes standard with a six-speed manual.

An EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined, 27 city and 36 highway can be achieved with the EX model equipped with the Eco package.
