Built-in protection.

Your safety is our priority. That’s why every Kia is designed with trusted technologies to help protect you and your passengers. The 2017 Rio’s advanced airbags system includes dual front, front seat-mounted side, and full-length side curtain airbags.


Made for life’s curves.

The Rio’s advanced driver-assistive systems function automatically to give you enhanced control in various driving conditions. From the steering control of Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) to the braking support of Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), the Rio is intelligent safety technology when you need it.


It’s improved control for peace of mind. Electronic Stability Control (ESC) helps keep you on course, while Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) offers increased steering control when driving on a slippery road.

Intelligent braking you can count on. 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 in place as you accelerate from a stop on an incline.
