2018 Kia Rio 5-door Mount Hope WV

2018 Kia Rio 5-door Mount Hope WV

We’ve already touched on the fact that the Kia Rio sedan was completely redesigned for the 2018 model year, but what we forgot to mention is that the 5-door hatchback version of the subcompact sedan is entering its fourth generation right alongside it. For the most part, the 2018 Kia Rio 5-door in Mount Hope WV has undergone the exact same changes as the regular sedan version.

That means the Rio 5-door is more stylish, comfortable and refined than ever before, just like its sibling vehicle. It offers a more aggressive front end featuring the new tiger-nose grille. It features a wider rear end that accentuates its stability. Et cetera, et cetera. The new Rio 5-door will be everything the Rio sedan is, with the added bonus of more cargo capacity and utility than its smaller sibling.



Cargo Capacity & Utility

The Rio 5-door offers a passenger volume of 90.5 cubic feet, which is just slightly more than the sedan offers. Thanks to the door trims being reprofiled among other small changes to the cabin, everyone in the vehicle will benefit from improved leg room and shoulder room. But these bonuses might not be enough for a hatchback shopper, as they’re generally looking for additional cargo capacity rather than extra space for passengers.

Well they have nothing to fear, as the Rio 5-door offers 17.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the rear seats, which is nearly 4 full cubic feet more than the sedan offers. Fold down those seats, and drivers will have a whopping 32.8 cu. ft. of space to play with. That’s plenty of space for some extra luggage, gear for a weekend excursion or even to bring home a new piece of small furniture.
