Cleverly equipped.

Some advanced tech is made to be seen, like the available Apple Carplay™ and Android Auto™ for easy smartphone connectivity. Others are made to take action, like available Kia Drive Wise innovations that work automatically to help you stay alert. Find them both on the high-tech 2018 Rio.


Always looking ahead.

Stay alert with Kia Drive Wise, Kia’s suite of driver-assistive technologies designed to take action when you need it. The available Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS) offers audible and visual alerts if it detects a potential hazard in your path. And the available Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system can automatically apply the brakes if the system anticipates a frontal collision.

Automatic manual.

The Rio was designed to be smart and intuitive, and our interactive Augmented Reality (AR) Owner’s Manual is no different. Just scan the dash or under the hood with your mobile device, and you’ll see features of your new Rio pop up on your screen. Or simply sit back and take a tour from the comfort of your couch. It's how Kia puts innovation into the palm of your hand. Download the AR Owner’s Manual App for your compatible Apple® or Android™ device.
