Kia has you covered when shopping for a sporty and well-equipped small car at a highly affordable price. The 2018 Kia Rio may be Kia's smallest offering in the U.S. market, but this subcompact punches above its weight with its stellar interior space, features and value. For 2018, the Kia Rio is available in a choice of 4-door sedan or 5-door hatchback variants, which gives new car buyers greater choice when shopping for an affordable new car. Both versions of the 2018 Kia Rio share plenty of similarities, including trim levels and interior appointments, but the one you choose largely comes down to your style preferences, budget and need for extra space or versatility.
One of the key differences between the 2018 Kia Rio sedan and Rio 5-Door is cargo capacity. With the sleek Rio sedan, drivers have access to 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space, while the sporty Rio 5-Door hatchback boasts 17.4 cubic feet of standard cargo capacity. Fold down the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats in the 2018 Rio 5-Door, though, and the cargo area expands to provide 32.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space! Total passenger volume is nearly the same in the two Rio variants, with the 5-door hatchback featuring 90.5 cubic feet, compared to the Rio sedan's 89.9 cubic feet. Depending on current Kia offers and Capital Kia pricing, you may pay a slight premium for the roomier Rio 5-Door hatchback, as its starting MSRP* is $300 more than the Rio sedan. In fact, no matter which of the near-identical trim levels of the Rio you select, the 5-door features a $300 premium on its MSRP.
Both the 2018 Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback and Rio sedan models are offered in the following trim levels that include a superb list of amenities:
|2018 Kia Rio Sedan||Vs.||2018 Kia Rio 5-Door|
|29/37/32 MPG*||Standard Fuel Economy (City/Hwy/Combined)||29/37/32 MPG*|
|Available||60/40 Split-Folding Rear Seats||Standard|
|13.7 cu. ft.||Maximum Cargo Space||32.8 cu. ft.|
