The J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) has been the industry leading source of car reliability ratings for over 25 years. VDS examines issues reported by original owners of 3-year-old vehicles to determine which are the most reliable cars. The study aims to measure the long-term quality of vehicles, including new technologies and features currently available to buyers.

This latest achievement for the Rio reinforces Kia’s continued commitment to industry-leading craftsmanship. The Rio is yet another example of how far the entire Kia model line-up has progressed, and this kind of quality is tangible evidence of our long-term strategy to enhance the Kia ownership experience.

The 2018 Kia Rio stands out with an exterior defined by smooth surfaces and crisp lines, providing a more sporty and sophisticated look over the previous generation. The front end wears the latest iteration of Kia’s ‘tiger-nose’ grille, integrating newly designed headlights that are swept back for a more aggressive appearance.

Apart from the Rio’s stand-out performance in the 2018 Vehicle Dependability Study, Kia – as a brand overall – Kia ranked second among all Non-Premium brands! Industrywide, Kia has gained 12 rank positions since the 2016 VDS.
