Affordable price: The loss of the manual gearbox nudges the price of the Rio up slightly, though this remains one of the least expensive new cars available. Even springing for the upmarket S trim keeps the Rio’s price within easy reach.
Quality cabin: The layout of the cabin is handsome and feels built to last. That’s not something you can say for many economy cars that are filled with chintzy plastics and mismatched trim pieces.
Stress-free driving manners: The Rio sedan and hatchback make for excellent, simple, and easy-to-use commuter vehicles. Light steering and their small footprints mean they’re agile enough to squeeze through heavy traffic without breaking a sweat (or bashing a bumper).
Base trim is best avoided: Despite a temptingly low price, you’d be smart to skip the base LX trim. Its meager number of features is a constant reminder you could have had a whole lot more car for not much more money by opting for the S trim.
