The 2017 Kia Rio is a solid pick in the subcompact sedan and hatchback segment. It's not quite as refined as some class-leading rivals, but it might still win you over with its strong engine performance and excellent value.
- Ample standard and optional features
- Long warranty coverage for peace of mind
- Engine provides relatively quick acceleration
- Roomy seating for a subcompact.
- Lacks the ride and handling sophistication of rivals
- Base LX's non-telescoping steering wheel.
