Hi,

I'm looking to get a 2013 Kia Rio 5-Door SX with the Premium Package.

Can you tell me what the differences are between 2012 and 2013? Is the 2013 even available yet? I'm from the Boston, MA area.

Thank you

The only addition that I am aware of are the paddle shifters for the 2013 SX model. It looks that the ISG (Idle stop and go) is only available with the EX ECO package.

As far as I know the 2013 model is available but you might check with a dealer.

Thanks for the information. Paddle Shifters and ISG aren't too important to me.

As long as those are the differences, I'm fine with either year.

I'll be checking out the dealer tonight to see if they can get me what I'm looking for.

probably get a better deal on a 2012 and hardly any difference. better financing terms, but likely less selection of color... if any available at all....

changes to the 2013 (very little). The 2013's have been out for some time.

- Revised KIA badge on hood, trunk lid and steering wheel
- Standard steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters on SX model
- Standard cargo floor tray and net on EX and SX 5-door models
- Revised rear seat back release lever (flip-type handle) on 5-door models
- Optional Integrated Stop and Go system (ISG) included with ECO Package

There are no2012 Sx's with prem. Pack available, at least in the N.Y. area and as 1 salesman told me "In the whole Northeast", so I am waiting to order a 2013

I just got a 2013 5-door Rio LX (i think) though i'm too poor for the premium package. but i love it! the ECO mode definitely helps MPG...though my avg so far is still about 27. hoping it gets better as i break the car in.

I haven't seen any 2013 SX's around here for sale yet. Just the EX and LX. If you can find one of last years', definitely do it. It will be cheaper, also. Kia raised the prices for 2013....
