The Allure of the Sizzling 4th Generation Subcompact: The Rio Sedan
Sweeping releases with a very eye-catching design and extensive list of features, the new-for-2018 Rio sedan and 5-door are the latest additions to the exciting Kia family. Designed from the ground up in Kia's European studios as well as the U.S., there are many reasons to be excited about this awesome vehicle that you'll soon see heating up our lot right here in St. Louis. This vehicle has the necessary awesome convenience technologies loaded up on board: the 7-inch touchscreen interface and UV03 with Apple CarPlay will assure that you will be able to do your navigating in style, as well as enjoying your music with the latest and greatest of features. Android Auto is also included, with larger touch targets, an interface that is greatly simplified, and very easy-to-use voice actions.
When you are getting your loved ones from point A to B, or making sure that you get to work on time with a crowded commute, cruising confidently when it comes to quick stops is going to be one of the top items on your list. The autonomous Energy Braking on board is designed to detect and monitor vehicles that are traveling ahead of you, and determine if a crash is remotely possible. If it is, the brakes will automatically be applied, drastically reducing the chance of you having a dangerous accident as opposed to a smooth ride. Since most drivers simply do not have the force to avoid a crash, they sometimes do not break at all, because there may not be sufficient time for them to react. With a system like this that has your back as you are out and about, you can relax a bit and know that the manufacturer has your extended safety on the top of their list.
As far as the front end is concerned, the look is overall a bit sportier and has a loftier air of sophistication than the previous models. The front end sports the latest of the 'tiger-nose' grille, with souped-up headlights that are swept back for an edgier, more modern and playful appearance. The overall length of the Rio sedan has been upped .6", and the 5-door shares the same spec. Both the sedan and the 5-door are lower and wider, which makes for a more aggressive poise than on last year's offering. The rear of the Rio is noticeably more upright, due to shorter overhangs and tail lighting with a thinner aesthetic. The interior has a much more spacious feel, and the dashboard's exterior design give the cabin a feel that is wider.
A higher amount of leg room and shoulder room in the second row will be welcomed warmly if you are making the trip out to any of the amazing neighboring cities in Missouri, or headed to get in touch with nature for a precious view. This car weighs in at around 2,648 lbs, and engineers have sought to cultivate the driving experience with ride comfort that has improved, while your comfort factor for your next ride should be off the charts. Come down to the dealership and visit with us today: we are excited about the arrival of these new vehicles in the fall, and the stock currently on deck. We will see to it that you leave feeling satisfied, and that all of your questions about the most innovative product line in the nation are answered during your decision.
