This is my second Kia, my first being a 2007 Kia Optima, I was so impressed with the reliabiluty I purchased my second.
The Rio is everything I expected and more.
Very smooth, well built and a tremondous amount of features, many of which are not even offered in the compact class, nevermind subcompact.
The gas milage estimates hold true for me.
Normal in town city driving get me 30-32.
I recently drove to boston from southern maine and filled the tank upon leaving.
I drove 90 miles and then filled up again, used 2.3 gallons of gas for a mpg of 39.1.
I consistenly drove at about 65mph.
I have read all of the reviews and am baffled by the low gas milage some posters report.
gas milage, comfort, smoothness, lots of great features in the sx
