The Rio subcompact only comes with one engine: a 1.6-litre four-cylinder that generates 130 horsepower. However, you do get to choose between four-door sedan or five-door hatchback configurations. This urbanite offers UVO intelligence that allows you to use an app to lock/unlock the doors, locate the car and start/stop the engine remotely.
