The 5 Door KIA RIO SX is clearly the best car in its class and the driving experience can only be described as pure fun. There are other competitors in this class that are better in one or two areas, but none have the overall combination of a terrific engine with an excellent 6 speed automatic transmission, lots of interior room, fantastic looks, an abundance of safety features, high tech gadgets, nimble handling, and the best warranty in the industry. The RIO is extremely comfortable on long trips, which is unusual for a small car. Can you believe the outside mirrors are heated electronically and fold into the car with the touch of a button? And it has a rear view camera!
I really like the combination of brisk acceleration with outstanding Fuel Economy 38-39 highway only, 23-25 City only, and about 31-33 Combined. LED brake and running lights. 4 Wheel Disc Brakes, traction and electronic stability control, plus numerous air bags. Nimble handling with the SX Package. Rear View Camera is far more useful than I thought. Cabin room: 88 cubic feet. Highway Driving, operates @ only 2500 rpms while going 70 mph. Can easily pass other vehicles on the Interstate. 49.8 cubic feet of storage space with rear seats folded down. And did I mention driving this car is tons of fun as everyone loves it! Best industry warranty by far!
