Kia completely redesigned the sedan and hatchback models of the Kia Rio for the 2018 model year. Now that that the 2019 models have started to arrive, potential buyers can expect to see a few subtle changes. On the sedan side, the automaker is only producing the LX and S trims, while the hatchback is available in a single S trim of its own. Features that were available with or exclusive to the top-of-the-line EX trim have largely been redistributed.

Sedan Trunk Volume

Independent reviews of the 2019 Kia Rio sedan had plenty of positive things to say about the available trunk volume in the new subcompact sedan. It comes with 13.7 cubic-feet of volume to use in the trunk, which places it on nearly equal footing as other sedans in its class. Additionally, the independent reviews found it easy to load the trunk with a fair amount of gear.

Hatchback Cargo Space

A hatchback will always have an advantage over a sedan when it comes to available cargo space. This axiom holds true for both body styles of the 2019 Kia Rio. Owners of the hatchback version with people in the back seat will still have 17.4 cubic-feet to use. Folding the rear seats of the 2019 Rio 5-Door down will rapidly expand that space to 32.8 cubic-feet.
