Interior Features

Heated Steering Wheel

We all know how brutal our Edmonton winters can be, and an underrated driving aspect is always having to grip onto a cold steering wheel. Put that in the past thanks to the heated steering wheel of the Rio, which warms at the push of a button.

Heated Front Seats

Stay toast warm even on the coldest Alberta winter morning with both driver and front passenger heated seats, found in both the back and seating cushion. Find your perfect temperature with three different settings available.

Automatic Climate Control

No matter the time of year, let all inside the Rio enjoy the perfect climate inside. The automatic functionality of the system will automatically adjust to your needs, so you don’t have to keep up on things and do so manually.

Smart Key with Push-Button Start

Modern convenience truly can come from just a push of a button, and few better here than in the Smart Key with Push-Button Start. Here you can easily lock or unlock toys door and start your vehicle without ever having to actually insert a physical key, all with the Rio’s Smart Key.

4.2” Supervision Cluster

The 4.2-inch LCD Supervision Cluster keeps all of your Rio’s important vehicle information centred in one location. This bright and convenient display is situated right behind the steering wheel for quick access without providing distraction.

Kia Connect

Keep your Rio with you at all times, even when it may be out of view thanks to the Kia Connect remote app. Use features such as start, climate control, check your vehicle status and more, all from your smartphone’s screen.


Blind Spot Collision Warning

Have your Rio look out for you with Blind Spot Collision Warning. The system will let you know if another vehicle moves into your blind spot, so you can properly avoid them to ward off any potential collisions.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist

Another system that watches out for you is the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, which warns against potential collisions that it detects. Braking will even automatically be applied if the driver doesn’t act soon enough.

Lane Keep Assist

Staying within road lanes may seem easy, but it’s something that unconsciously slips our minds. Lane Keep Assist is available and will monitor your position in said lane, and will even correct back into the centre if it feels you are unnecessarily pulling out of the alne.
