The Kia Rio has been fully redesigned for 2018, making this the fourth generation Rio to be sold in the United States. The new car grows just a bit, offering more interior room than previous generations, while still maintaining a relatively compact footprint, making it easy to park and maneuver about the city. The interior has been improved as well, with nicer materials and a more upscale feel to go along with the extra room. The exterior proportions make the car look less like an economy car for this generation, particularly on the hatchback; the 5-door version looks mature and upscale in contrast to its relatively moderate base price.
