Rio5 not well known but a good car
By rs on
2008 Kia Rio Rio5 LX 4dr Wagon (1.6L 4cyl 5M)
I bought this car as a commuter car. It is great. I get 34 mpg combined driving. It is cute, the girls love it. I did not buy it for that though. It made sense to me a good value in a nice package. I drive a lot and was driving a big truck, the monthly payment and gas for this car is cheaper than the gas for my truck. I read many reviews on the internet and reliability is up there too. For a sub compact it is quiet. Lots of features for the money. It has a small engine but has enough power to get me up hills at the speed limit. I'm very happy with it.
Roomy interior, well made, gas sipping not guzzling, comfortable, 5/4 star crash rating, I got the power package option.
better crash rating for back seat (3 star), a few more factory options, better stereo, alarm, adjustable passenger seat like drivers. overall though no big complaints.
