2017 Kia Rio near Watertown

A 2017 Kia Rio near Watertown is a substantial competitor in the subcompact market, and we at Russ Darrow Kia of Waukesha are happy to take a minute to let you know about this vehicle’s attributes and why it stands out. While subcompact cars are usually of the economy variety, the Rio is exceptional in that you don’t have to compromise. The features are abundant, and all are fun to drive.

Technology and Utility in the 2017 Kia Rio

The LX trim is the first of the two—the SX is no more—and it packs a ton of useful features. Included are steering wheel-mounted controls for the four-speaker audio system, air-conditioning and a tilt steering column. You also get a height-adjustable driver seat, 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks and a trip computer.

A convenient Power Package is available with this trim of the 2017 Kia Rio near Watertown, and it tacks on keyless entry and a few extra power accessories. Bluetooth comes with this bundle as well. The top-level EX comes with these features as standard, and you also get 15-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, extra chrome exterior accents, a six-speaker audio system, cruise control, map lights, padded armrests on the front doors and a sliding center console armrest and storage area.

Safety and Performance in the 2017 Rio near Watertown

A 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine is standard for the entire lineup, with the only difference being the transmissions. The LX gets a six-speed manual, while the EX comes with a six-speed automatic. The latter is an option on the LX. Output is great for the class, with models turning in numbers of 138hp and 123 lb-ft of torque. EPA fuel economy estimates fall in the 31 mpg, city/highway-combined range. Figures may vary depending on which transmission you select for your 2017 Kia Rio near Watertown.

Every Rio comes with a host of protective inclusions for you and your passengers, and highlights include rear door child safety locks, the LATCH system (Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren), side-impact door beams and traction and stability control. Rounding out the list of standards are a hill-start assist system, front side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags.
