2008 Kia Rio Rio5 LX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought this as my first "new" car and I like this little buggy. I am a sales rep and so am on the road a lot, it handles well and is fun to drive. It is pretty good on gas. I would say average for a car this size. I put a huge ski box on the roof and it gets a bit worse of course. I use it in the winter around Alberta/BC with good winter tires and its great, plowed through 1 foot of snow on mountain roads more then once. I have taken it on logging roads for hundreds of km, driven it to California, Vancouver Island and more. It feels like a Honda or Toyota in terms of build quality, pretty solid. Shifts nice. Looks Euro. A great car.

Favorite Features

Good weight distribution for winter driving, good handling, good on gas. SIMPLE.

Suggested Improvements

2.0-2.5 L engine would be nice for some things.
