Kia Rio in Sherman, TX

New 2021 Kia Rio in Sherman, TX

The new 2021 Kia Rio has arrived, and we have it in stock here at Bob Utter Kia near Tom Bean, TX. A new year means new improvements that make this car one of the best choices when shopping for a new vehicle on a budget. It is even available as a sedan or hatchback. The Rio will take you to work, school, into the city and beyond.


The Kia Rio maintains its grinning black grille on the front bumper in both sedan and hatchback body styles, but with a slight redesign to give it a sportier look. Since it comes in both sedan and hatchback trims, you can choose between the two independent of other features. Do you want the extra space the hatchback provides, or are you looking for something with a low back?


The Rio's 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine provides 120 horsepower, which is plenty for this subcompact car. Travelling an EPA-estimated 33 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway, it will get you from McKinney, TX to Denison, TX efficiently, and with a fuel capacity of 11.9 gallons, it can make that trip ten times. The continuously-variable transmission (CVT) and well-tuned suspension will keep the ride smooth from start to finish.

It's What's Inside That Counts

In the Kia Rio, simplicity is the name of the game. The center dashboard gives you clean and easy access to the climate and audio controls. Economical doesn't mean it looks cheap, either. The interior is professionally textured, and there is plenty of space for you to keep extra hand sanitizer in the door pockets so all five passengers can keep clean on your next road trip.

The sedan style for the Rio has 13.7 cubic feet of space in the trunk, which is more than many compact sedans like it. The hatchback can hold 17.4 cubic feet with the rear seats up, or 32.8 cubic feet with them down. This is more than double the sedan, making it the ideal option for transporting luggage or a lot of groceries.


The Rio features an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for easy access to navigation and music from your phone. You can connect it via Bluetooth or USB, helping keep your phone charged even on the long drive to college.

It has a rearview camera with dynamic parking guidance, and available automatic emergency braking, lane-following assist, lane-departure warning and automatic LED headlights.

The Right Rio For You

The Kia Rio LX is the standard trim, while the Rio S comes in both sedan and hatchback. The Rio S has additional safety features and entertainment options, like SiriusXM, that the LX lacks. The Rio S also includes a center armrest, cruise control, and rear USB outlet for those long drives out of Plano, TX.

The hatchback design for the Rio S has more leg-space for passengers and over twice as much total cargo room. If you plan to move things around, but still want the affordability and low profile that the Kia Rio offers, the S hatchback is the car for you.
