Best economy car

by biskit73 from Louisiana on Mon Nov 07 2016

Great little car for economy and still fun to drive. Lots of great options, my favorite one being the bluetooth capability. I can use my hands free features on my smartphone. The one thing I dislike about this car is the tire design. These low profile tires do not last. Have to buy a new set every 30000 miles. Maybe 35000 at best.

Perfect Size

by Value Hunter from Toledo Ohio on Tue Oct 12 2010

I couldn't be happier with my Rio5. I knew I wanted to get a car at a good price and with a good look. The Rio5 has both. It's very roomy and I love the hatchback feature. It has real zip and handles well on the road. I'm completely satisfied.

I Love My Rio5

by KIA Fan from Texarkana, AR on Sat Apr 23 2011

This is my first KIA and my first hatchback. It is comfortable, handles well on the highway and in traffic. I purchased my 2011 in January when there was snow on the ground; I have driven it for 3 months in all kinds of weather. I have been driving a larger, much heavier vehicle and was apprehensive about highway driving and adverse weather. I am pleased that it handles well on gusty spring days and that the visibility is good in heavy rain and really pleased with the gas mileage in town with heavy stop-and-go traffic and on the highway. I get as high as 37mpg on the highway and 30 mpg in town.
