Does the 2013 Kia Rio have Bluetooth?

I just got a used Kia Rio and I’m getting more familiar with its older radio console system. I’m used to driving my sister’s car around, which is newer and has Bluetooth streaming so I’m kind of missing the feature. Does the 2013 Kia Rio have Bluetooth?

It’s always exciting to get to know your new set of wheels! Yes, the 2013
Kia Rio
has Bluetooth, but it’s only standard in the
Rio EX
Rio SX
If you have a
Kia Rio LX
that isn’t Bluetooth-equipped, don’t worry. You can always purchase an aftermarket
Bluetooth speaker
for your Rio to help you make hands-free calls or listen to music without having to plug your phone in.
If your Rio is already Bluetooth compatible, it just takes a few simple steps to get your device connected:
  • On your device, turn Bluetooth on.
  • On your Rio, hit the Setup button on the radio.
  • Select Phone by using the tuner dial.
  • Select Pair Phone.
  • Your radio screen will show you your Rio’s device name and passcode.
  • On your phone, look for and select the device name under Available Devices.
  • Enter the passcode.
Your Kia will confirm when it has fully paired with your phone, and will automatically connect anytime your device is in the vehicle. Once connected you are free to stream music or make hands-free calls—just make sure you stay focused on your driving. No one wants a
distracted driving ticket
to spoil the day and hike up their
car insurance
