    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2013 Kia Rio OVERVIEW

    The Rio comes as either a four-door sedan or five-door hatchback. All get a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 138 horsepower. The base LX comes equipped with a six-speed manual air conditioning, 15-inch wheels, trip computer, tilt steering wheel, split-folding rear seat, Bluetooth and four-speaker audio system with AUX and USB inputs. A six-speed automatic is optional, but standard on the EX, which also gets power windows and locks with remote keyless entry, front armrest, cruise control and a six-speaker audio system. The top-rung SX adds attractive 17-inch alloy wheels mated to a lowered and stiffened sports suspension and paddle shifters for the standard six-speed automatic, though a six-speed manual is an option. Leather-wrapped steering wheel, a backup camera and Kia's UVO voice recognition system is also standard.

    The Chevrolet Sonic is available with a powerful and efficient turbocharged engine and is well made, but can be expensive and lacks the Kia's long warranty. The Ford Fiesta is more agile and fun to drive but can also be pricey and has a cramped rear seat. The Honda Fit has superior interior flexibility and is fun to drive, but isn't as efficient and doesn't have advanced in-car technology. The Toyota Yaris is less expensive and known for reliability, but has a cheap interior and isn't as efficient thanks to an outdated four-speed automatic.

    Despite plenty of choice in the category, the Rio stands out because it has all of the bases covered. It's comfortable and practical, with an efficient engine and lots of available features like leather seats and voice recognition, while coming standard with a five-year warranty and eye-catching looks. It will please people of all backgrounds and who need a car for commuting or just driving around town. For anyone looking at a small sedan or hatchback, the Rio should be near the top of your list.
