When you’re on the road, you need to stay alert, and with the Kia Drive Wise suite of driver-assistive systems, you can. These systems are equipped to take action when it’s needed, so you and your passengers remain safe.
The available Kia Drive Wise features on the Kia Rio include:
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW): Scans the path ahead and notifies you to any potential hazards with audible and visual alerts.
- Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA): If the system anticipates a frontal collision, it will automatically apply the brakes to help reduce the chance of a collision or the impact of one.

This available service makes it easy to track where you parked the car, receive roadside assistance, schedule maintenance, and so much more. With your compatible smartphone, you’ll be able to use the advanced features for an integrated driving experience.
The Kia Forte features a 1.6L I-4 engine under the hood that pairs with a re-engineered 6-speed automatic transmission to deliver up to 37 mpg on the highway. An updated braking system and the Motor Driven Power Steering (MDPS) provide the responsive handling and exceptional control you want.
Plus, you and your passengers can enjoy a smooth, quiet ride thanks to the high-quality insulating materials and construction containing 30% additional Advance High-Strength Steel (AHSS).
Just because you’re on the road, doesn’t mean you have to be disconnected from your tunes, apps, and more.
