The Kia Rio returns for 2021 but only in five-door hatchback configuration. The four-door sedan, like a number of other sub-compact cars, has been eliminated. Under the hood, you will find a decent 1.6-litre four-cylinder engine producing 120 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque. Drivers will enjoy the Rio on the road as the stiff chassis results in good handling in corners and a stable ride on the highway.
