Kia is the fastest growing automotive brand in the U.S. This is largely due to its abilities to respond to customer desires. Customers clamored for a six-speed manual transmission version of the Rio, and Kia delivered.
Available in a limited quantity is the 2013 Kia Rio SX with five doors and a six-speed manual transmission for drivers who want a little more control over their Rio experience. The Rio will give the joyride of a lifetime, something most would not expect from a subcompact car. It provides a more engaging driving experience while still offering the luxuries associated with the subcompact car segment, such as comfort and convenience. The inspiration for this vehicle stems from the championship-winning motorsports efforts by Kia and the newly revealed Kia Rio B-spec racecar.
Standard on the Rio 5-door SX M/T is a class leading
four-cylinder double-overhead cam gasoline direct-injection engine, producing 138 hp and featuring dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing. The Rio gets an outstanding 40 mpg on the highway. Available in red or blue, the Rio comes with LED taillights, front LED accent lights, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The interior is just as incredible, offering a 7-inch navigation touch screen with the SiriusXM Traffic system, as well as a push-button start. Also standard are sport-tuned suspension, rear camera display, Bluetooth, steering-wheel mounted audio controls, and a SiriusXM audio system.
