It intelligently switches from its electric motor to its 2.4-liter 4-cylinder MPI engine in response to your driving. It offers a combined199 horsepower—while still delivering excellent fuel efficiency. Add in the 235 lb.-ft. of torque and the Rio is an all-around, smart, efficient, and invigorating drive.
The Rio cabin offers a truly distinct touch: an available white interior package that features luxurious white leather seats, the refined touch of blue piping, and additional leather-like touches on the door and armrest.
