I just bought the car and didn't notice the manual windows. It said LX on the trunk so I just assumed it wasn't the base model and would have power windows. Does Kia sell a retrofit kit? I've installed universal kits before but want to avoid all that fabrication.

Door panels and wiring harnessses are different.
You could try a local salvage yard for parts to complete the job but the BCM in your Rio probably won't support the power windows. The BCM looks at the up/down switches and issues that actual command to move the windows motors..
The micro computers are involved in just about any electrical body function. I would think it would be quite involved retrofitting power windows in a manual window model.
