Safety Features

A rearview camera is a standard feature in the Kia Rio that enables Amarillo drivers to see more clearly when backing up, which mitigates the blind zone and makes exiting a parking spot easier. The rearview camera can reduce the amount of stress you feel in different scenarios while behind the wheel. Lane departure warning, a rear-seat reminder, and forward collision warning are available features. Driver drowsiness monitoring is a feature that aims to prevent collisions caused by driving while drowsy, an issue that is more common than most people realize. Lane keep assist and forward automatic emergency braking are more options to consider.

Trim Levels

The LX and S are the two trims available for the Kia Rio. The S trim is available in both a sedan and a hatchback. Both trim levels have a generous amount of features that make them worth considering.
