2014 Kia Rio Prices, Reviews, Specs, Features and Photos

just a few years ago, we received a new, updated Kia Rio model, and in 2014 we received it with minor changes. There is no doubt that the 2014 Kia Rio was offered with some really nice features like the 2013 Kia Rio, and we are sure that it is a strong competitor in the market.

Looking at today’s market it is quite obvious why we like the 2014 Kia Rio. It is in front of the competitors and those competitors include models like Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent, Honda Fir and similar. We are sure that some drivers will not agree but read on to see what Kia Rio has to offer.

2014 Kia Rio Exterior:The list of the features that we like with this model is pretty long and there are only a few complaints but we need to say that the most interesting segment of this car is its exterior. With the five-door hatchback model, that is even better looking than the sedan, we have recognizable and modern Kia grille while the bubbly shape is quite attractive and offers a decent amount of interior space. Compared to the sedan version we will always pick this one.

2014 Kia Rio Interior: On the interior, we can also notice some significant improvements over the previously delivered Kia models. Rio now offers modern and hi-tech features which we rarely meet in the entry-level vehicles. This did not stop designer to flawlessly incorporate large LCD display into the center console while the materials and finish offer a soft touch and quality feel. As a reminder of the older models and what we had long before significantly improved tech in cars, we have quite nice toggle switches for climate controls.

The amount of space in the interior is similar to what competitors offer and the closest one is the Ford Fiesta. Both are similarly shaped and will offer enough space for most people even on the back seat. Just like always, with this type of car, taller people might have problems with the back seat room but nothing huge. 
Front seats offer good support and are comfortable even on longer trips where you will not feel almost any problems when driving. Cargo area is enough for basic needs but for longer vacations, you might need something more. ( Also check out the table below to learn more about the 2014 Kia Rio interior features.)

ENGINE: If you decide to buy the 2014 Kia Rio you will be able to get it with only one engine, there are no options for the 1.6 liters inline-four. This engine produces pretty healthy 138 hp which is great for this small vehicle but still does not have the needed punch. It would be great to see a more powerful turbocharged unit that would offer both more power and significantly more torque. A quite good automatic transmission is responsive and will always keep the optimal revs and quickly downshift when needed. The start/stop function is now offered with this vehicle even it was announced for the 2012 model it was slightly postponed but now helps this car to achieve 30 mpg in city driving instead of 28 mpg which is quite good.

HANDLING: Handling and ride comfort is much better in 2014 Kia Rio than it was the case with a few previous models. This segment was upgraded thanks to the changes made to the suspension and it is certainly impressive to see such a short wheelbase car with twist-beam rear suspension and basic strut to offer comfortable and fatigue-free ride with pretty good handling. 
You might get better handling from competitors but still, you can expect a lot from Rio. One of the things that we don't like with most new vehicles is the electric steering, which offers almost no feedback, so you are not that sure what is happening on the road, the same thing happens with this model "2014 Kia Rio".

SAFETY: The 2014 Kia Rio safety features included six standard airbags, ABS and stability control. This is pretty much the basic equipment for most new cars but still is more than enough to protect you and your passengers. Features like Bluetooth and a rearview camera came as an option while the hill-start aid was also a part of the standard package. We are still waiting to see the IIHS crash report but the NHTSA gave it a four-start on their test. ( TO SEE ALL SAFETY FEATURES, CHECK OUT THE FOLLOWING TABLE).
