The 2016 Kia Rio 5-Door is a hatchback that comes loaded with lots of exceptional features and great fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance. Standing among the best of 2016, this marvel is equipped with a 1.6 liter 4-cylinder Gasoline Direct-Injection engine that produces 37 mpg with the automatic transmission and 27 mpg with the manual transmission. Fuel efficiency is at its best, but as you take a closer look, you’ll notice that there is a lot more that this car offers.
Idle, Stop & Go Technology
One of the most unique features of the 2016 Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback is the Idle, Stop & Go Technology, which automatically shuts down the engine when the car is idle. On the other hand, the engine restarts automatically when the accelerator is depressed. This makes the Rio even more fuel efficient by saving gas when the car is not in motion.
Driving Safety and Security Features
The 2016 Kia Rio 5-Door is probably one of the safest hatchbacks out there, and the 4-star rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) testifies this fact. The car has front side-impact, front side, and rear-side curtain airbags, stability control, and a 4-wheel anti-lock brake system, making it a highly reliable and safe car to drive.
KIA’s UVO Technology
UVO is KIA’s advanced voice recognition system that allows drivers to attend to calls, view maps, switch audio tracks, and perform other functions via voice commands. It’s innovative and makes it possible for the driver to safely handle calls and other car settings while driving.
