KIA RIO IS LEADER OF THE PACK OVER SUBCOMPACT COMPETITORS
For a long time, the Kia Rio has been the South Korean automaker’s most affordable model. Lately, however, the Rio is exceedingly impressive in several areas besides cost. In twenty-twelve, the Kia Rio has undergone a complete redesign and is now better than ever featuring a spacious and enhanced styling from the outside-in. It seems we’re not the only ones to pick up on this trend. Consumer Reports recently ranked the Rio as the top pick for subcompact sedan, above other competitive models including the Chevrolet Sonic and Hyundai Accent.
The CR review took note of a few impressive highlights that make the Rio a standout subcompact vehicle including:
Smooth gearing and low interior noise levels
Excellent handling dynamics
Standard technology features like iPod input and satellite radio
A starting price of only $13,600
30 mpg city / 40 mpg highway
The report also notes how the entire field of subcompact cars has improved over recent years, no longer only considered for their fuel-efficiency and cost-value. The modern subcompact is spacious enough for a small family and has looks to rival cars bigger and more expensive. This is what makes seeing the Kia Rio at the top of this list of revamped models so impressive.
