Powering the 2020 Kia Rio is a 1.6-liter inline four-cylinder DOHC 16-valve engine with a Multi-Point Injection fuel delivery system. This engine delivers up to 120 horsepower and 112 lb-ft of torque. The compression ratio of the engine is 11.2:1 which helps to improve fuel economy. Paired with the engine is an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). This engine and transmission combination produces impressive fuel economy ratings.

Reliable performance doesn’t just come from the engine and transmission, it comes from several parts. Front-wheel drive helps to maintain traction when taking sharp turns, stopping on a dime, and in slippery weather conditions. Motor Driven Power Steering (MDPS) helps to provide more control and improved responsiveness. The Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) will help prevent loss of control when you need to slam on the brakes. All of these features combined provide you with a reliable, impressive, and controlled driving experience.
