2012 Kia Rio Sedan priced from $14,150
Approximately one month ago Kia revealed the price list for the 2012 Rio hatchback and this week they’ve published the same information about its sedan sibling which costs from $14,150, including the $750 destination fee. This means that the sedan is $200 more affordable than the hatchback if you opt for the entry-level model that comes with a manual transmission. If changing gears is not your thing, you can opt for the automatic gearbox version that will set you back at least $15,250.
The 2012 Kia Rio Sedan can be ordered in one of the three trim levels available: LX, EX and SX, all of them which are powered by the same 1.6-liter GDI, 4-cylinder engine that outputs 138 hp. This engine is linked as standard to a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic.
According to the estimations made by EPA, the car is able to return 30 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. Next year, the automaker will implement the Idle Stop and Go system which should be able to improve fuel efficiency.
Some of the standard features of the car include electric power steering, air conditioning, SiriusXM satellite radio with three months of complimentary service, MP3 audio system with USB and AUX, along with ESC, ABS, Vehicle Stability Management and Hill-start Assist Control.
The high-end Rio Sedan EX is available starting with $18,250 and comes with extra goodies like LED front accents and taillights, metal pedals, a steering wheel and shift knob wrapped around in leather, bespoke meter cluster, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, power-folding mirrors, along with a voice-activated infotainment system that has a rear view camera.
