Hi, i have second car (as city beater)1.6 kia cerato/forte 2005 with more than 100k miles on the clock and engine still works great as when it was new. Just make sure you do regular yearly oil changes and you will be fine. Hyunday/kia 1.6 mpi engines are most reliable. Just dont go for 2.0 liter gdi engines because they are complete opposite - unreliable.

And that has WHAT to do with his question?? Different engines, different generations. Anyway, if you THREW a rod, a 2013 HYUNDAI Accent engine will work in a 2012 Rio. We're talking USA models I presume.

I still think it would be compatible. I only stressed USA because I know nothing about the European/Asian etc. variants. The person I quoted is from Slovenia......

P.S. You obviously missed the point of the capitalization. :)

Kia and hyundai do share Engine and transmission
better you inform Engine Code or type, and Transmission Code.
ussually they attach the Label or Marking on it. or with picture would be better
