2018 Kia Rio Styling & Interior Features

The Rio’s interior is solidly built and looks more upscale than the competition. It has achieved a level of sophistication through its well-thought-out design. All the controls are logically placed and identified, it has a surprisingly good four-speaker stereo sound system and the infotainment touchscreen is easy to navigate. The seats are supportive and provide excellent support. In the top trim, you get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a bigger touchscreen and forward collision warning system with automatic braking. The Rio keeps surprising you. It looks bigger, feels bigger, and performs bigger than it is. You keep finding little details that you wouldn’t expect in an entry level car like small storage spaces located throughout the cabin. You really have to see this ride to fully appreciate and that’s easier than you might expect. You can test drive a 2018 Kia Rio near Santa Ana, CA or Tustin, or just about anywhere in Orange County at the Irvine Auto Center. Contact us today!
