Most spacious and comfortable interior and ride

I fell in love with the unique exterior look and then was surprised at the spacious comfortable interior that had the elegant dash with every update I needed. Love the roomy hatchback feature, and the power and pickup is excellent and easy to drive.

Worst car I've ever owned.

The engine knocks loud, has no power, poor fuel economy. The transmission is slow to shift, when it is below 39 deg F the transmission wont go over 5 mph at 3,000 rpm. Dealership claims there is nothing wrong... The infotainment is a horrible joke. I had better in cars from early 2000's. The dealership lied about features the car was supposed to have. I will never buy a Kia again. Only has 1,900 miles on it.

Stylish and a Great Value

Very nice looking car. The entertainment system is amazing. Its like having a tablet in your car. Some standard things are missing (cruise control) but this car offer great value and an unmatched warranty.

Most reliable car we have owned

We was looking for a family car with lots of room. Kia Rio has plenty of leg room even with a carseat in the back. Big truck space for all the things we need to travel with a baby.

Kia Rio nice and blue

This car is pretty good. Kia Rio is good at manging speed. If you have a bad habit of speeding up a little bit over. The rio will help you mange your speed so you don't go over the speed limit. The car is great at switching lanes with ease.

One the best entry levels cars around

We own 3 Kias. 2 Kia souls and now a Kia Rio. This car is for my daughter. We have had very good reliability with our Kia cars. This was a purchase that fit our budget and will get her thru College.
