Highly affordable: Money matters, especially when you’re looking for a low-priced vehicle. The Rio sedan and hatchback are kind to your car shopping budget, and the fuel-sipping engine is equally gentle in terms of refueling bills.
Upmarket cabin: Look around the interior of the Rio and you’d be surprised how much energy has been spent making the cabin appear solid and classy. It’s not a Bentley, sure, but the quality of the materials is appreciated.
Standard tech touches: The fact the Rio now comes standard with a highly intuitive seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto could earn it a place on many car shopping lists. Smartphone connectivity is more important than horsepower for many car buyers.
Lacks many active driver-assist features: Moving up to the S trim gets you automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning, but that’s it. The Rio’s lack of additional driver aids—like blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic warning—is a missed opportunity.
