Kia Australia has rounded out its Rio light hatch lineup with two new models, adding the three-door Rio Sport and the five-door Rio SLi to the range.

The Sport and SLi complement the existing S, S Premium and Si variants that have been the mainstay of the 2015 Rio lineup until now, and both sit at the top end of the range with retail prices over $21k.

The Rio Sport is the more affordable of the pair, wearing a sticker price of $21,490 before on-roads and available exclusively as a three-door auto-equipped model.

Leatherette seat upholstery with red contrast stitching, alloy sports pedals and a centre console with integrated armrest differentiates it from lesser Rio models, and the Sport is also available in a new "Digital Yellow" hue.

AT the top of the range is the Rio SLi, which gains rear parking sensors, two-tone leather and cloth upholstrey, rain-sensing wipers, privacy glass and climate control as standard. It retails at $22,990.

Both the Rio Sport and Rio SLi are equipped with Kia's 103kW and 167Nm 1.6-litre direct-injected four-cylinder petrol engine.
