Kia's smallest car:

Dealer stock is comprised of 2021 Rios, a carryover. This subcompact sedan is Kia's smallest and least expensive model.

The current offers are good through July 6, 2021. We are not expecting any significant changes for the July 4th (Independence Day) holiday. This page is updated monthly with the newest incentives, so be sure to check back for the latest information.

Lease from $258 per month:

Kia doesn’t advertise a lease deal for the Rios, but we’ve uncovered an unpublished offer that represents an estimate of what you’ll pay. Check with your dealer to confirm.

This lease deal covers the 2021 Rio LX sedan. Here, you’ll make payments of $258 per month for 36 months with $2,258 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost is $321 and that’s very high for this subcompact model. We think you’re better off purchasing a Rio as you’ll own it outright within four or five years.

Most Kia lease deals include 10,000 miles per year of driving allowance. At lease end, you will pay a disposition fee.

Rebates and other cash deals:

If you purchase a 2021 Rio, Kia offers $750 in customer cash and that's $250 more than earlier this year in February.

The only qualifier here is if you claim the customer cash, you won’t be eligible for Kia’s promotional financing. But you may qualify for standard financing, so ask your dealer.

Beyond customer cash, there are other special deals available. Specifically, there is a Happy Kia College Graduate Program with a $500 Graduate Bonus Cash rebate for qualified college graduates. Also, the Military Specialty Incentive Program supplies a special discount for qualified buyers. Check with your Kia dealer to discover the current offer.

Finance from 0.0-percent APR:

Kia continues to offer promotional zero-percent financing on many of its models.

Choose a 2021 Rio and you’ll find 0.0-percent APR for 60 months, 0.9-percent APR financing for 66 months, 1.9-percent APR for 72 months, and 2.9-percent APR financing for 84 months. These are the lowest rates we've seen yet on the 2021s.

Kia’s financing rates are among the best in the industry.

Ask your dealer about applying the college graduate or military rebates, if eligible.
