The new Rio features modern stop lights that appear to feature LED technology. The bumper is equipped with a modified black board at its lower edge and L-shaped reflectors of the previous car were lost in favor of two thinner items mounted next to the license plate.

2017 Kia Rio Sedan Engine
The fourth generation of New Kia Rio brings a series of technological advances in the car, as well as a more spacious cabin and freight capacity. Despite these jumps, the light hatch keeps the 1.4-liter, proven and somewhat aging 1.4-liter gasoline engine with 74kW and 133Nm output, combined with a four-speed automatic transmission or a six-manual reports. The power figures are actually slightly down on the previous model in order to meet the stricter fuel and emission requirements.
A 3.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder is currently under study to follow around mid-year, however, offering 88kW and 172Nm of torque. This new factory will be matched to 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmissions. There is also the potential for the current 1.4-liter to be coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission in a timely manner.
