The 2019 Kia Rio continues to offer top safety scores, remarkable space inside, and all-round versatility; it’s still one of the best small SUVs, and a good value for money.
2019 Kia Rio First Drive
The 2019 Kia Rio gets excellent ratings and is an IIHS Top Safety Pick. Its forward-collision warning system in particular works well, and it has acquired more capabilities in the last couple of model years. The 2019 Kia Rio offers a pleasantly high driving position, lots of front elbow room, and a dashboard far enough away to make the interior feel spacious. The upright shape and low window line make the interior airy and light and give excellent outward visibility.

Noise suppression is good, with more sound deadening added last year, as well as an acoustic windshield, thicker window glass, and better door seals. This helps address a chronic 2019 Kia Rio Pricing weak point and makes the car much more pleasant for longer trips.
2019 Kia Rio Redesign and Price
Top safety scores and continual updates to safety features put the 2019 Kia Rio among the safest cars in its class. All 2019 Kia Rio include a rearview camera as standard equipment. This year, all Limited and Touring models now come with blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alerts. Those features are also added to Premium models ordered with Subaru’s EyeSight system.
The best value in 2019 Kia Rio is a base model with manual gearbox, but it’s still decently priced after adding fancy audio, leather, and a moonroof.
