2023 Kia Rio

Exploring the Kia Rio in Amarillo

The Kia Rio is a reliable, stylish, and efficient subcompact car. It comes packed with features that make it an excellent choice for your daily commute or long-distance trips around the Texas Panhandle. The comfortable interior provides plenty of room for passengers and cargo, and the advanced technology makes driving safer, easier, and more convenient.


The ambitious Kia Rio draws power from a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 120 horsepower and 112 pound-feet of torque. It pairs with a six-speed automatic or continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive is standard on all trims.

Our new Rio models come standard with four-wheel disc brakes and an anti-lock braking system (ABS). The vehicle also has MacPherson struts in the front, while the rear suspension features a torsion beam axle.

The updated Rio comes with Drive Mode Select, which allows you to choose between Normal, Eco, and Sport modes. The modes change the engine response and shift points for a tailored driving experience. The Rio also has an all-wheel drive option for improved traction on wet or snow-covered roads.

The Kia vehicle has an impressive 7.2 inches of ground clearance and can navigate through potholes. It can also tow up to 1,000 pounds when properly equipped, making it a good choice for light-duty hauling around Canyon.
