Kia's cars tend to be obscenely good values, and the 2018 Rio keeps that alive.
All Rio trims are available in both sedan or hatchback body styles, with the LX sedan starting at $13,990 and the LX hatch at $14,290.
Adding a six-speed automatic tacks $1,000 onto the price.
The LX is the only model that can be had with a six-speed manual.
No matter what trim is chosen, the sole engine on offer is a 1.6-liter, naturally aspirated four cylinder good for 130 horsepower and 119 pound-feet of torque.
It's a revised version of the outgoing Rio's engine, but tuned for better low-end torque.
The Rio EX comes standard with autonomous emergency braking and forward collision warning.
Kia's top-tier, 7-inch infotainment system includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Kia deliberately did not include an embedded navigation option, preferring instead to keep costs down by relying on drivers' phones.
The 2018 Kia Rio goes on sale in the fourth quarter of 2017.
