2019 Kia Rio Safety | Deacon Jones Kia

South Korean automotive giant Kia Motors’ Kia Rio has become one of the most-favored subcompact cars in the world. With an engine that runs on 130 hp at 6300 rpm, it packs a punch. 

The car comes in three variants–the LX, S, and EX models–and offers a mileage of 29/37/32 in the city/highway/combined. Each of the trims received amazing reviews for their performance from customers and automobile specialists. 

What about safety? Is the Kia Rio a safe car? Let’s find out. 

Safety features

The Kia Rio comes with a standard set of smart control safety features common in most subcompact cars. 

Three variants of the Kia Rio have built-in dual front advanced airbags & side-mounted airbags, front seat belt pre-tensioners, anti-lock braking, hill-start control, vehicle stability management, electronic stability control, side impact door beams, lower anchors and tethers for children (LATCH), electronic brake-force distribution, rear child safe doors, and front and rear crumple zones. 

The LX and S come with a tire-pressure monitoring system while the EX has an upgraded high-line tire-pressure monitoring. These features offer amazing protection to the vehicle. 

They have constructed the Kia Rio using high-strength steel that's 30% more advanced than other Kia cars, adding a layer of safety and making the car stronger and more rigid. 

Crash test results 

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Crash Test, the Kia performs well both on the front and side crash tests. These safety features have been tried and tested under various crash conditions and the Kia Rio has provided positive results. 

The European New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) tests prove the same. The Kia Rio has a 93% performance rating in adult safety and 84% performance rating in child safety, making it a very family-friendly car.
