Interior is nicer than rivals: Every vehicle in the subcompact sedan class prioritizes affordability over all else. That means you shouldn’t expect the kind of interior refinement found in slightly more expensive cars. The Kia Rio is no different, but you won’t have to make as many sacrifices. Sure, there’s a lot of hard plastics inside, but they’re designed with more care and have a more substantial feel.
Good ride quality: Entry-level cars aren’t known for their comfortable ride, but the Kia Rio is an exception. Thanks to a soft suspension, it handily soaks up rough pavement and bumps in daily driving, and it exceeds expectations for the class.
Fuel-efficient: All of the Kia Rio’s rivals deliver similarly excellent fuel economy to its EPA-estimated 32 mpg city, 41 mpg highway, and 36 mpg combined estimates.
Limited trunk space: You can’t defy physics and win. A small car is going to have a small trunk and the Kia Rio is no different. Its trunk maxes out at only 13.7 cubic feet. That splits the difference between the smaller Mitsubishi Mirage and Nissan Versa. Hatchbacks are a better choice on this front, and the Rio 5-Door can hold up to 17.4 cubic feet.
