Refinement: The updated Kia Rio drives with much more refinement than you might expect from a vehicle with such an affordable price. Its ride is comfortable and the steering nimble enough for any daily errands or commuting needs.
Economy: Gas mileage matters, particularly when cross-shopping small economy cars like the Rio. When equipped with the automatic transmission, the Rio offers an EPA-estimated 32 mpg in a mix of city and highway driving.
Cargo space: Do you plan on hauling lots of stuff in your subcompact car? Then opt for the Rio hatchback. Not only does the hatch itself make loading the trunk easier, there’s more room behind the second row than what you get in the sedan.
Better base model: There is something to be said for a low base price. Yet the most basic Kia Rio feels too spartan even by the standards of a penny-pinching economy car. Having to wind up your windows is an automotive throwback not many car shoppers wish to revisit.
