The two generations of the Kia Rio were available as a five-door hatchback and a four-door sedan. All models were equipped with the inline-four fuel gasoline and diesel engines. The front wheel drive was standard on all Rio models. The hatchback vehicle was worldwide marketed under the various nameplates: Rio RX-V in Canadian market and Rio Look in Chile. In the American automotive market, the hatchback was known under Rio Cinco name.

From 2003 till 2005 was offered a larger version of the same engine, a 1.6-liter engine making 105 horsepower. The diesel engine was not available in the American market. The Rio provided the choice of a 5-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic transmission. In American version, the power steering and a tachometer were hatchback's standard features, while optional on the sedan. The safety features included the seat belts, driver's airbag and ABS. For the 2003 model, the engine and suspension were upgraded, the new interior and exterior styling was offered.

The 2006 sedan was offered in the base and LX trim levels. The American version Rio 5 came only in SX trim, featuring the steering wheel covered with leather. In the United States market, a 4-door-sedan and a 5-door hatchback were available only with 1.6-liter gasoline engine. In 2007 the SX trim level was added to the Rio sedan lineup. The LX trim level was offered for the Rio 5 in 2008. The 2010 model comes as a 4-door sedan in Base, SX and SL trims. The new Rio received a face-lift. The previous grille is replaced with Kia's new bow-tie grille. The car side moldings are narrowed and body-colored. A 4-door hatchback Rio5 is offered in LX and SX trims.

A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.

2003 Kia Rio | Posted by George | (Commack, NY)

Caliper assembly I have received looked like brand new part. With full set of instructions how to install it. It took me less than an hour to replace the old brake assembly saving me at least hundred dollars. Now brakes work as good as new. After placing an order I have received part couple of days later with explicit instructions how to return the old defective part to get credit. I was very satisfied with service and quality of the rebuilt brake caliper assembly, especially since my car is 12 years old and this is the only part I had to replace so far.
