The 2019 Kia Rio lineup is now available nationwide. Though the Kia Rio didn’t receive a full update for the new model year, a handful of changes should help to keep everything fresh and competitive. The largest change to the lineup is the removal of the highest trim level leaving only two trim options. Automatic trim has been added as a standard feature to the base LX trim and Apple CarPlay has been added as a standard feature to the S trim. A small bump in the starting costs should round out changes that car shoppers will see on the 2019 Kia Rio lineup.

To improve the buying experience, the Kia Rio lineup has been tailored to just two options for the 2019 model year. Drivers will have their choice between the base LX trim with a starting MSRP of $15,300 or the S trim with a starting MSRP of $16,100.
The base trim favors fewer standard features and a smaller starting price point for drivers with a tight budget while the S trim favors adding in a handful of popular amenities including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for drivers interested in a few added enhancements.
With only an $800 difference between the two trim’s starting costs, we suggest drivers choose the S trim, if possible, for the best experience. Along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the S trim includes a larger touchscreen display, split-folding rear seats, steering wheel mounted driver controls, and a few other amenities that bring even more comfort and convenience to each trip. Of course, with Kia’s award-winning warranty coming standard, drivers can feel good about any 2019 Kia Rio trim purchase.
The 2019 Kia Rio is a compact sedan that’s perfect for a commuter vehicle, a first-time driver, or someone with fewer storage needs. Visit the Moritz Kia dealership in Fort Worth, TX to schedule a test drive with the trim level of your choice. It’s the best way to research a new-to-you model and see if it offers the space and feature set that you need to enjoy your time on the road.
