Littleton CO Area - 2017 KIA Rio EX

To get more EX info, you can call our dealership, which provides 2017 Rio EX quotes to Littleton Colorado. A Littleton CO Area 2017 KIA Rio EX V6 dealer, we are known for serving Littleton CO. The 2017 model year is pivotal for the KIA Rio for two reasons. One, it marks the beginning of the subcompact car's fourth production cycle-complete with the "FUNctional™" tagline for its established reputation as an exciting yet practical ride. And two, it is the year when KIA ditched the SX trim, thus moving up the EX as the top available model. With a new generation of production, the 2017 Rio is the most refined iteration of the nameplate yet, and the EX trim represents its absolute pinnacle. 

Interior

Designed as a five-seater, the 2017 KIA Rio EX supplies 88.4 cubic feet of passenger volume. Standard cargo volume is measured at 13.7 cubic feet, with the 60/40 split-folding rear seats expanding the trunk space for more luggage room. The seats get a premium knit cloth trim, with the option of going with two-tone cloth-and-leather covering with gray accent stitching to join the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. A six-speaker audio system-which includes AM/FM radio, a single-disc CD/MP3 player, and SiriusXM® satellite radio service-provides the entertainment in the cabin. You can enhance the audio system by adding a 4.3-inch color touchscreen for displaying audio information and executing entertainment functions, UVO eServices for voice-recognition ability, and a rearview camera for flashing a video image to see what's behind you when shifting to Reverse. For comfort and convenience, the EX comes with standard features like cruise control, steering wheel-mounted controls, and Bluetooth® for hands-free phone calls and audio streaming. 

Exterior

Riding on 15-inch alloy wheels, the 2017 Rio EX distinguishes itself aesthetically at the front fascia with a chrome-surrounded black mesh radiator grille. Also at the front are a pair of projector halogen multi-reflector headlights and a pair of fog lights for providing exterior lighting. At the front doors are power-operated side-view mirrors, which can heat up to defog, or melt ice and snow. And with the keyless remote, you can lock or unlock your doors by pressing a single button, thus providing a layer of security and convenience. You have the option of adding automatic control on the headlights; by doing so, they will automatically turn on or off depending on the level of sunlight outside.

Mechanical

Rather than piecing several parts together, KIA uses a steel unibody construction for the new Rio EX. The result is a vehicle that is sturdy and less susceptible to breaking down. For absorbing turbulence from bumps or rough surfaces, the subcompact ride has an all-wheel independent suspension. The front has a MacPherson strut design with a stabilizer bar for precise, sporty handling dynamics. And the rear has a coupled torsion beam design with gas shock absorbers for responsive handling and ensuring comfortability. Motor-driven power steering not only contributes to sharp and precise handling, but also saves on energy consumption because it relies on an independent power source instead of relying on the engine. 

Powertrain

Using a front-engine front-wheel-drive layout, the 2017 KIA Rio EX is powered by a 1.6-liter Gamma inline 4-cylinder engine, which produces 138 horsepower at 6,300 RPM and 123 lb-ft of torque at 4,850 RPM. Linked to the engine is an electronically-controlled 6-speed automatic transmission, which includes a Sportmatic® shifter for manual gear shifting. Included on the Rio EX is an Active Eco system, which proactively controls parts of the engine, transmission, and HVAC system to achieve the best possible fuel economy on the car. Also aiding such an effort is the optional Idle Stop and Go system, which conserves energy by stopping the engine when coming to a stop and turns it on when it's time to resume driving. 

Safety

The 2017 KIA Rio EX has an airbag system that consists of dual front impact airbags facing the driver and front passenger, dual side impact airbags installed on the front seats, and roof-mounted dual front and dual rear side curtain airbags. The EX is primed in stopping ability: with four-wheel disc brakes for quick response to brake pedal application, anti-lock braking for preventing wheel lock-up, and electronic brake-force distribution for even distribution of braking pressure. There's also hill start assist control to prevent the vehicle from rolling backward when driving from a stop on a hill. And electronic vehicle stability control is on board to keep you on your intended path of travel regardless of road or weather condition.  Prepared for this FUNctional™ vehicle?
