http://www.lemonlaw.com/wordpress/do-you-have-to-change-the-timing-chain-on- your-kia-rio/ is another link you may want to look at, there seems to be a descrepency on whether it's a belt or chain driven cam.

Personally I would replace it as the repair manual tells you do do it. They snap often and when they do, you need a new engine. Used engine are rare and they sell around 1500$ + installation =$$$. Worth investing in a new belt. Personaly I would change it when they recommand it. It snap on my previous Rio so I bought a new Rio instead...
