Exactly what I was hoping for
Craig R., 08/16/2022
2022 Kia Rio
UPDATE: 11 months in and like it even better. Mileage has settled in at about 44 mpg combined. Have had it on road trips to Montréal, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, and New Orleans. Not a single problem thus far. Have had my 22 Rio Hatchback (with tech package) for 2 months now with one decent road trip under its belt. I have no delusions of grandeur here- hey it's an economy car. But I've … been extremely satisfied thus far. On a road trip to Montréal and back- all freeway mind you- I averaged 47 mpg while driving about 5 mph above the speed limit and just some luggage and me in the car. Comfort is fine, acceleration much better than I expected. Sound system is better than that of the Kia Sportage I traded in for the Rio. The one thing I want to stress to anyone considering buying this little car- GET THE TECH PACKAGE. Car would be FAR too bare bones without it. I have it- for US$1800 it includes disc brakes all around, LED headlights, alloy wheels, keyless ignition, nicer trim, Sirius XM radio, automated temp control system, and a BUNCH of safety features including such things as lane keep assist, driver attention warning, lane follow assist, and forward collision warning. The only negatives- it sits VERY low- not the car for you if you're someone who likes to flop down in a seat rather than ease into your vehicle. Also you have to be aware of things such as pulling too close to parking blocks- and you're not going to see much of what's ahead other than the car or truck in front of you. I also would liked to have had a telescoping steering wheel but that's not available. Overall I am completely satisfied thus far.
