With its base 1.6L, 4-cylinder engine, and six-speed manual transmission, the 2016 Rio offers fuel economy ratings of 27 mpg in the city, 38 mpg on the highway, and a combined rating of 31 mpg. When the Rio is paired with the same engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission, it still delivers a high fuel efficiency of 27 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.
The Rio’s engine can also generate 138 hp and 123 Ib-ft of torque.
