2018 Kia Rio Release Date and Price
At the Auto Show, the new 2018 Kia Rio has been introduced. It was posted by Mark as the official teaser image and it shows us about his ideas we can expect on this new car. As you know that the Kia Motors is one of the best automakers and they are capable to provide their car outside Asian markets. It is expected to be available in US.
The design language of Kia has been developed to make it widely acceptable on the global market. You can see it in their new 2018 Kia Rio with the bold statement from its nose to tail design. It is the new international pedigree with the soft lines to make it sharper but more mature. The car has 1/2-inch of bigger wheelbase and the high front end is higher than the current design type. It has funky soul with the same theme and the thin tail lights that have LED arrow hand.
The cabin is desirable with ergonomic desk chair and durable materials to deal with any damage. It has better quality materials compared to the previous model. The standard optional feature will be USB and AUX input, rear camera, control, six-speaker audio system, infotainment and entertainment, start button/stop, Active Eco, lighting and LED power windows and more. We glad that it will have a new plan of VSM Technology Safety to improve the automatic address, electronic stability control, long lasting air and tire monitor.
2018 Kia Rio Engine
2018 Kia Rio will be supported with high and powerful engine. The Korean automaker wants to use T-GDI turbo four-cylinder engine and 1.6 liter to provide about 140 hp. There is also optional engine with smaller version which can be less than 1.4 liter. To provide good fuel consumption, it seems that the company will give a nice combination of train engine as well as six-speed manual gearbox. Buyers are possible to request for an automatic transmission as the optional. The new generation is capable to reach about 40 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city.
Rumors said that the new 2018 Kia Rio is available on the market in the beginning of 2018 with the price about $14,400 for the LX model and $21,000 for the top model, the SX. They also provide the EX model which only takes about $17,900. This information is still invalid because it is still based on the experts’ estimation.
