You'll Like This Car If...looking for a good American home used car
If you're seeking a fuel-efficient small car that is affordable, stylish, roomy and well equipped, the Rio sedan makes a great choice. Those worried about long-term reliability can take comfort in the Rio's 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
What's New of 2007
A new trim, the SX, is added to the lineup and features 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights, rear spoiler, sport seats with black mesh inserts and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
Ride comfort and easy maneuverability head the list of Rio merits. Even when the pavement gets troublesome, Kia's suspension absorbs considerable roughness. Steering is light, but the Rio is delightfully nimble in urban environments, tracks adeptly on straightaways and is easy to guide into turns. Through curves the body doesn't lean as much as might be expected. Performance is improved but is no more than adequate with the mannerly automatic transmission. Although the engine gets seriously buzzy when accelerating, it quiets nicely at speed. A low cowl and sizable rear glass help create nearly unobstructed visibility.
Six Standard Airbags
If Kia can put side-impact airbags and curtain-type airbags into every Rio, one wonders why other automakers have made these important safety features optional - if available at all.
Unlike some small cars with automatics, the Rio goes through the gears promptly and easily, with no awkwardness or lurching. Shifts are barely noticed, in fact, though the manual transmission can deliver slightly more spirited acceleration.
Although five passengers can squeeze into the Rio, longer-legged folks might not be comfortable in the backseat. Rear head- and foot room are adequate, but the rear seat is hard and reclines excessively, and the center occupant straddles a tunnel. Front occupants get ample space on supportive and well-cushioned seats. The Rio's trunk has grown to 11.9 cubic feet, and with the LX trim can be expanded thanks to the 60/40-split folding rear seat. Helpful extras include a dashboard slot that can hold a parking ticket, plus a hook that can carry a purse.
