All-new for its fourth generation, the 2018 Kia Rio 5 is a subcompact hatch that punches well above its weight in terms of style, comfort, and technology. Based on the same platform as the Hyundai Accent, and styled by Kia’s California and German design centres (led by Peter Schreyer), the new Rio 5 is lower and wider than most of its competitors. This means it loses a little practicality compared to, say, the Honda Fit or Nissan Versa, but it gains a much more aggressive, planted stance. Combined with its conservatively handsome sheet metal, this makes it look like a more expensive car than it is. The impression carries over into the cabin too, thanks to touches like standard heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated seats, and LCD display audio with Bluetooth connectivity across the range – yes, even the base $14,995 LX model gets all these goodies. My test car was a far cry from the base model, being a top-of-the-range Rio EX Tech version, but even here, at a heady (for a subcompact) $23,745, the Rio 5 delivers a lot for the money.

Issue: On certain vehicles, a part in the trunk release latch could fail. If this happens, the emergency trunk release located inside the trunk compartment may not work properly. This could prevent a person that is trapped inside the trunk from opening it. Safety Risk: If a person is closed inside the trunk compartment, they may not be able to get out. This could create a risk of injury. Corrective Actions: Kia will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealer to replace the trunk latch assembly.

Certain vehicles may not comply with Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Regulations. The compliance label may bear a printing error within the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) information, incorrectly stating “840 0”kgs instead of the correct “840”kgs. Correction: A production change has been undertaken to remedy this technical non-compliance condition and has been deemed to be non-safety related. Under a Service Campaign Bulletin, dealers are to use a black paint pen and draw over the additional 0 on the label.
