2017 Kia Rio vs. 2016 Kia Rio

If you're looking for a subcompact that turns on a dime and has a fun sense of style, then prepare to fall in love. Enter the Kia Rio, a popular car with a lot of power and flair for such a small package. We'll compare the 2017 Kia Rio vs. the 2016 Kia Rio to see which is the best choice for you.

Both the 2017 and the 2016 Kia Rio models come with 138 HP in all trim levels, which is superior to just about every other subcompact on the market. While you enjoy that nice performance, you can choose from Kia's UVO eServices for the 2016 Rio, which is available for high-level trims, as well as voice-command navigation. In the 2017 Rio, you get an upgrade to UVO3 eServices, which offer the same control over your navigation but give you increased connectivity with music apps and expanded music storage to 8GB, or enough space for around 2,000 songs.

Max Out Your Subcompact Value with a Kia Rio in Racine and Milwaukee WI

Here's even more reasons why either the 2016 or the 2017 Kia Rio is a great buy in the subcompact class. Both models start at the same low MSRP, so you can easily enjoy the inimitable style of Kia, with a "tiger nose" front grille and fun colors like Signal Red, Chestnut and Digital Yellow (only for 2016 models). And the 2016 Rio is coming off a 5-out-of-5 rating in the recent J.D. Power Initial Quality Study, which means among the many thousands of new customers who reported any issues with new vehicle purchases or leases in the first 90 days of ownership, the 2016 Rio was reported to have among the fewest technical issues in its class. And its 10 year or 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty for both the 2017 Rio and the 2016 Rio is the best in the industry, keeping the savings going well after you leave the lot.

If you want fun, features and maximum savings, you want a Kia Rio, and we proudly carry it at Frank Boucher Kia of Racine, 9601 Washington Avenue in Racine WI, though we also serve the area which includes Milwaukee, West Allis and Kenosha.
