2018 Kia Rio for Sale in Houston, TX

2018 Kia Rio for Sale in Houston, TX2018 Rio EX shown.

The thought of buying an affordable sub-compact sedan might normally leave you feeling like you’re giving up on appearance, state-of-the-art luxury, and safety features, but the 2018 Kia Rio can lay all of those thoughts to rest. It’s unconventional design, high efficiency, and spacious comfort will support you during every moment you spend on the road. To get a better sense of what the Rio has to offer, and for help picking a trim level and accessories that will nicely match your lifestyle, stop by Fredy Kia to take a test drive and get a great deal on your next car.

The Rio’s exterior design is a clever deviation from a typical sedan – enough of a uniqueness that it’s able to look stronger and more athletic than the rest. It’s slightly wider stance and sharp geometric accents give it its intense glare, but the gradual, swooping lines that run across the entire vehicle give it grace and enhanced fuel efficiency. The multi-reflector halogen headlights will make your drives at night feel even more powerful, and the iconic tiger-nose grille will ensure that the driver ahead never ignores your presence. To really show off the Kia’s bold sides, add the available 15-inch split-spoke alloy wheels. As you pull up in Houston off i-69, no one will be able to miss you.

Just as the Rio’s exterior doesn’t leave you unsatisfied, you certainly won’t be missing any of the interior features that you would expect from a more expensive sedan. The UVO with a 7-inch Touchscreen1 works with your personal device to give you intuitive and simple control of your music. Although the inclusion of clear and direct displays will help you keep your eyes on the road and not on your phone, you can add the available Rear Camera Display2 so that the 7-inch display shows you whether or not you’re going to bump in to something or someone on your way out of the driveway or a tricky spot. There’s so much to take in and learn about the 2018 Rio’s interior, so make sure to have any of our staff at Fredy Kia show you all of the great features that the Rio has to offer.

If you’re still left wondering how the Rio must skimp in some area so that it can be so affordable, you’ll be proven wrong anywhere you look, especially if you examine the cargo space. Your ventures are easy with the Rio’s 13.7 cu. ft. of cargo space, and you’ll have no difficulties sitting comfortably with 38.9-inches of front headroom. There’s a whopping 89.9 cu. ft. of passenger space, so you’ll never have to leave your friends behind. To see this sedan’s welcoming presence, to bask in its comfortable features, and to take it for a test drive, visit Fredy Kia. We want to make sure that you get the vehicle that you want at a great price, and we want to show you what’s so stunning about the 2018 Kia Rio for Sale in Houston, TX.

I am beyond thankful for Fredy Kia and their workers Leslie Libby, and Edgar. I was in need of a car and the same day I walked in was the same day I drove out. I want to genuinely thank Leslie for making sure I was well taken care of; she literally did not stop texting me until I was in a vehicle and her persistence and sense of urgency meant a lot to me. Special thanks to Libby for her loving hospitality and a huge thanks to Edgar for getting me approved for a vehicle both affordable and reliable.

My husband and I went to Fredy Kia on Gulf Freeway and test drove a 2020 Kia Optima! The car drove smooth, trade in process was easy, and Robert Bryant made the purchase process smooth! Finance department was excellent! What started the whole process was the test drive of an excellent vehicle! Thank you Fredy Kia!

The absolute best car purchase I’ve ever had. Salesman Mario Paniagua is the most informative and caring person I’ve ever had the pleasure to deal with while making my car purchase. Mr. Fredy the owner is a real gentleman and leader in the auto industry. He made the auto purchase an amazing experience for myself and my wife. A special thank you to the person that put us all together (Jonathan Yonan). He has gone above his responsibilities to make sure we were pleased. Thanks to Big Papa Gill for the ease in how he took us through the financial paperwork.
