2019 Kia Rio Sedan vs 2019 Kia Rio 5-Door Hatchback
Kia produces 2 hatchback models within their current catalog. Those would be the Kia Rio 5-Door and the Kia Forte5. Despite the 2019 Kia Forte releasing a few months ago, a new 2019 Kia Forte5 has yet to release. However, both the 2019 Kia Rio sedan and the 2019 Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback are now out and available for purchase. So, what’s the difference between these 2 Kia Rio models? It’s the 2019 Kia Rio sedan vs the 2019 Kia Rio 5-Door hatchback!
2019 Kia Rio Sedan and Hatchback Comparison
|Model||2019 Kia Rio Sedan||2019 Kia Rio Hatchback|
|Baseline Engine||1.6L Inline 4||1.6L Inline 4|
|Transmission||6-Speed Automatic||6-Speed Automatic|
|Combined Fuel Economy (mpg)||32||32|
|Fuel Tank Capacity (gal.)||11.9||11.9|
|Maximum Cargo Capacity (ft3)||13.7||32.8|
The big jump in price from the 2019 Kia Rio sedan to the 2019 Kia Rio hatchback might seem like a bit much just for that hatchback’s extra cargo space. However, that’s not the only advantage. See above that the 2019 Kia Rio sedan has 2 trim levels? Those are the standard LX trim, and the higher S trim which has a starting MSRP of $16,100. Meanwhile, the 2019 Kia Rio hatchback has a standard S trim level, meaning it has a lot of additional features that the 2019 Kia Rio LX sedan does not.
