The 2018 Rio is brand new. Now built at a plant in Mexico, the Rio features a modern and dynamic body and an equally modern 1.6L four-cylinder engine. There are two six-speed gearboxes—a manual and an automatic. The Rio5, the five-door version of the popular subcompact, has also been updated. It may be small, but the Rio comes with a lot of equipment and advanced technology.
