Enhanced safety.

The 2017 Rio 5-Door features trusted passive safety systems to help protect you and your passengers. Advanced airbags with sensors can detect both the presence of a front-seat passenger and the level of an impact.


Intelligent handling.

For more precise handling from behind the wheel, the Rio 5-Door’s advanced active safety systems are engineered to work automatically whenever you need them. Whether it’s the added steering control of Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) or the additional braking support of Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), the Rio 5-Door actively and intelligently adapts to your driving conditions.


Maintain control when it matters most. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps keep you on course, while Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) offers increased steering direction control when driving on a slippery road.

Advanced braking for improved efficiency: Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) adjusts braking, front to rear, depending on load. The Antilock Braking System (ABS) senses emergency braking situation and boosts braking pressure when needed. Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC) helps keep your Rio 5-Door in place as you accelerate from a stop on an incline.
