Lots of space and character

You’ll need help finding a new car for sale for a lower price and with a better specification in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Birmingham, Montgomery, or Huntsville than the 2023 Kia Rio. The Rio is one of the most affordable new cars you can buy today, but there’s much more to like about the 2023 Rio than just its tantalizingly low starting price and class-leading warranty.

Models and trim levels

The 2023 Kia Rio is ideal for navigating the urban jungle with its subcompact proportions and perky powertrain, and it’s affordable enough to make a great deal of sense to a wide range of new car shoppers. The Rio is ideal as a first car, an affordable second car for a growing family, or an affordable commuter car with a warranty that provides great peace of mind. A 5-year/60,000-mile warranty is something few rivals get anywhere close to providing, and it’s one of several aces up the sleeve of the latest Rio.

Anyone considering the 2023 Rio has two body styles to choose between that help to broaden its appeal. While the four-door sedan body style is likely to be the choice of many, anyone looking for something sportier may get drawn to the hatch and the extra practicality of its extra door. The Rio lineup is also appropriately compact. The sedan is available in two trim levels: the base LX and the higher-specification S. The hatchback is only available in the high-spec S trim.

Appropriately efficient

New 2023 Kia Rio powertrains and performance

Being able to squeeze into tight parking spaces in the urban jungle is what the 2023 Kia Rio is much more about than getting away from the lights in a cloud of tire smoke. That’s why the Rio gets an appropriately efficient powertrain into all three available models. The Rio powerplant is a 1.6-liter inline-four producing 120 horsepower and 112 lb.-ft. of torque, which gets sent to the car’s front wheels through Kia’s Intelligent Variable Automatic Transmission (IVT).

The Rios’s suspension is a conventional combination of front struts and a rear torsion beam. However, the setup smoothes out big bumps nicely, while the alert and quick steering response livens things up and provides a settled experience for those longer drives on the highway. As long as you don’t try unfairly comparing the Rio to electrified rivals, the fuel economy is highly competitive, with EPA-estimated ratings of 32 mpg in the city, 41 mpg on the highway, and 36 mpg combined.

A great value package

Amazingly low-priced new cars are not entirely unheard of in the market, but many need some key features to achieve their ultra-low prices. While you won’t find heated and ventilated leather seats and a head-up display in the subcompact Kia, the standard specification of the Rio more than covers the main bases. The LX Sedan has an incredibly tempting starting MSRP, but standard equipment includes a full set of power features, air conditioning, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

The higher-spec S trim builds on the base model with standard cruise control, a split-folding rear seat, keyless entry, and other welcome features. However, the available Technology Package is a fantastic option if your budget runs to it. The package includes automatic emergency braking, active lane control, automatic high-beam LED headlights, satellite radio, a digital instrument cluster screen, automatic climate control, push-button start, alloy wheels, and rear disc brakes. The Rio is excellent value in any configuration, but adding the Tech Package takes it to another level.
