Subcompact cars are an increasingly popular segment of the Canadian car market, combining great economy with the performance and comfort you'd expect from a modern vehicle. The most common subcompacts usually come in the SUV format, but the Kia Rio offers something a little different.
2021 KIA RIO Inventory
Available in both four-door sedan and five-door hatchback variations, the new 2021 model is available for sale at our Calgary dealership. Her are just some of the great features you can expect from this exciting little vehicle.
The only engine option for the 2021 Rio is a 1.6L four-cylinder design making 120 horsepower and 113lb-ft of torque. The power is passed through either a six-speed manual gearbox or an intelligent variable automatic, both to front-wheel drive. These figures are plenty enough to propel the subcompact frame smoothly along city roads and highways alike.
But the real bonus of the Rio is its great driving feel, with the well-balanced suspension giving an attractive combination of agility, comfort, and stability. The steering is precisely weighted, and the low centre of gravity means the Rio takes corners with ease.

RIO for Sale
One of the prime drivers behind the subcompact format's popularity is the excellent fuel economy it can provide. The Rio is a great example, boasting impressive figures of 7.1L / 100km in the city and 5.7L / 100km on the highway, ratings which are hard to beat outside the hybrid realm.
The Rio's interior makes a virtue out of simplicity, keeping everything neat, clean, and easy to use. The cabin feels spacious for a subcompact, although it's only natural that the rear seats may be a little tight for larger adults.
For 2021, the Rio is available with an 8" touchscreen in the front - a generous offer for a car of this size - backed up by dual rear LCD screens. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both offered as standard, while Bluetooth and USB ports provide plenty of connectivity and charging options.
Depending on the trim level, the 2021 Rio is fitted with a range of active driver assist and safety systems. Standard and available options include:
With the Rio you get a lot of car for very little money. At the lower end of the range, the LX+ trim with manual transmission can be yours starting from just $17,295, while even the high-end EX Premium tips the scales at only $22,495.
All Kia Rio models come with a comprehensive standard warranty covering five years or 100,000km, with all consumables like wiper blades and headlamp bulbs covered for the first year.
If you want to see what the growing fuss over subcompact cars is all about, book a test drive of the 2021 Kia Rio from our Calgary showroom. With its small size, high fuel economy, and amazing comfort, the Rio makes a perfect car for daily city driving duties.
