Along with the extra seating, the Rio also has 13.7 cubic feet of cargo volume in the back for any supplies you need to take along with you.

Both of these vehicles offer technology systems that can help you remain safe as you travel around the city or along the highway. They each have available systems that can detect potential frontal collisions and alert you so you can stop before that happens. With the Rio, it can even look out for pedestrians ahead for safer city commuting.
