2012 Kia Rio SX Sedan
I needed to get a new daily commuter car as I drive over 70 highway miles daily. Look at what you get from Toyota, Honda, Nissan in this same segment and compare all the features. I went to each dealer, Toyota had a sticker price increase of $1500 "market adjusted value" on the Corolla! Nonsense! I wanted something that would get good gas mileage (+36mpg), holds a couple golf bags and more in the trunk, and if needed, my family of 4 when we're not in the sweet minivan. This car has extreme value at a low price... less than $18K out the door. You can electronically fold in the heated side mirrors, which have LED turn signals. The front lights have LED markers and the rear tail lights are all LED. Engine has the most horsepower in the segment and is direct injection technology. Big 17 inch wheels on the ground, USB port on radio which is built by Microsoft UVO and I could go on and on for the features. You will see many of these features only in higher segment cars. Japan auto makers are becoming dated fast with their features and technology and are overpriced for their value in today's market. KIA shares many of their platforms now with Hyundai and the quality of their build has dramatically improved with the RIO. I have been very satisfied for the first 1200 miles. If you are looking for good gas mileage, good trunk space, great features, LED lights aplenty, etc... do not overlook this car and forget completely about KIA in 2008. In 2012 they have transformed light years ahead of the competition.
Fun to drive, good MPG, Inexpensive
I bought this car new to replace my 91' Imperial and I'm averaging 33 (70%/30% C/H) mpg at the pump and I'm loving it. Although the ride isn't the smoothest, it's definitely better than many others I've driven in this class. When you turn the ECO setting off, you get a significant boost in power and throttle response. Handles great in the city, but acts like a small car would on the interstate. I love the SportShift, although not the quickest shifts, it is a blast through curvy roads. The high beams illuminate very well as do the regular lights. Steering has good feel and the car is very nimble up to about 45 when the electric steering starts to show. Design cues from Audi shows.
KIA RIO PINGING BAD?USE SHELL NITRO PREMIUM ONLY
Our Kia developed a severe pinging issue running regular gas especially with the ECO mode on. The Kia Forum website states that Kia is running a series of ecm ( engine control computer ) software patches to solve this issue. Many people on that forum have had the patches done and these patches have largely only helped for a few weeks before the bad pinging came back. I finally decided that I didn't want to destroy my engine no matter how 'great' the Kia warranty supposedly is. I started using PREMIUM - NAME BRAND GAS AND TURNED THE ECO MODE OFF. ****Shell Nitro premium gas is THE BEST GAS FOR THIS KIA. BETTER YET BUY A TOYOTA AND LEAVE THIS BRAND TO THE IDIOTS WHO DON'T READ THIS REVIEW! THIS CAR IS COMPLETE FUBAR!ENGINE LIGHTS SINCE TWENTY THOUSAND MILES-RUNNING LIKE A PERSON HAVING A SEIZURE HALF THE TIME. NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS LIKE THIS WITH HONDAS,NISSANS OR TOYOTAS WE OWNED. NEVER NEVER NEVER WILL WE BUY A KIA EVER AGAIN.IF SOMEONE GAVE US ONE WE'D SELL IT THE NEXT DAY. STAY AWAY FROM KIA!!!!YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!! After four gas tanks full of this, our Kia is running and shifting better and smoother then it ever did new. more below-
More About This Model

This is a great time to be a compact car buyer. The cars in this class are more fuel-efficient than ever, have a greater list of premium features and are more fun to drive. And in the case of the 2012 Kia Rio, they even look better than ever. As we overheard someone say, compact cars are no longer a penalty box — now they are a box suite. Cars in this price range can even be ordered now with leather, heated seats, navigation and more.

When Kia's designers set out to redesign the Rio, they carried over nothing from the previous-generation car. The 2012 Kia Rio has undergone such an extensive overhaul that Kia even changed the font of the type in the "Rio" badge. The 2012 Rio is better-looking, more fuel efficient, fun to drive, and best of all offers a great value to consumers in need of a compact car.

The Kia Rio also matches up favorably to its competition. The Honda Fit has more cargo room, but less engine power. The Chevrolet Sonic matches the Rio's power and adds more torque, but you'll have to pay extra for the optional turbo engine to get the added benefits. The Ford Fiesta is another solid pick in this class, but if you are interested in a navigation system, the Rio has a traditional touchscreen setup while the Fiesta relies on voice-guided directions.
