“Stylish, and fun.”

The Kia Rio is fun to drive, with a engine, 6-speed transmissions, and if unsophisticated suspension. It conveys youthful energy.

A 1.6-liter engine is the only one offered. It direct fuel injection, used on a street car more 50 years ago and still reserved for more expensive cars. yields good power and economy. The Rio#39;s 138 horsepower is than anything in the class the Chevrolet Sonic with the rating.

Peak torque is 123 at a fairly high 4850 but again this has most of the covered, except for the Sonic#39;s turbocharged 1.4-liter at 148 pound-feet.

The Rio to be revved for maximum power, but so do gasoline engines. This one is so it doesn#39;t really matter if you to push hard because it only a bit of busy noise, the vibration or harshness. And with the power and among the lightest in the segment, the Rio accelerates comparably

Fuel economy is another story for the Rio. EPA numbers are mpg City/Highway, which are unmatched by the 500, Honda Fit, Yaris, Ford Fiesta, Versa, or Chevrolet Sonic, a couple of them can match the Rio EPA Combined rating of 33 mpg. the special fuel-economy models account for a small fraction of don#39;t rate 30 mpg City an automatic. (Keep in mind are EPA estimates and driving style far greater differences.)

As the car stops with the brake depressed the car disengages transmission engine and switches it off. As you your foot off the brake the car restarts and you drive off as normal.

The stop/start system on the Eco package just as it should, and helps fuel if your daily involves lots of stop-and-go On a hot, humid day with AC on, we near 35 mpg, not bad in light of the

Both transmissions are easy to The automatic has been programmed for so you have to be forceful with the gas to effect a downshift when is needed, or you can shift manually; it hold the gear selected if you mat the accelerator in sixth gear. The offers light throws and action, not as precise as a Fit perhaps but we got the wrong gear.

Throttle has been tamed relative recent Kia models, so it doesn#39;t forward with just a touch on the pedal. Rio now has hill assist to keep it from backward on uphill starts.

On the the Rio feels quite comfortable, the road surface determines how noise seeps in from the tires. The ride is taut being firm, the feeling one of and not punishment. Wind noise is not an at least up to Interstate speeds, and the allow relatively low engine for most highways so there#39;s no noise.

Economy cars designed for top handling marks but make plausibly entertaining because they weigh With just 2500 to control, the Rio has low mass on its side; it direction with minimal and no drama. The electric-assist steering is on center (many are) but offer up some feel at

The Rio SX, top of the line in luxury and sportiness, bigger front brakes, firmer suspension settings and wheels for a minor improvement in at a minor cost in ride We imagine the majority of SX buyers go for the features but some will the ride/handling balance skewed to their liking and pay the features-heavy premium to get it.
