Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

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

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

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

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

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

The Rio four-door sedan and five-door hatchback continue to infuse the Kia lineup with style, value, technology and spirited road manners. Although the Korean automaker's most affordable vehicle, the Rio offers consumers a large amount of standard amenities, safety features and interior space. It also wears its own interpretation of Kia's design philosophy, with an athletic profile that conveys power and agility.

Like the Hyundai Accent, its corporate cousin, the Kia Rio offers an extensive 10 year/100,000 mile warranty.

What's New for 2014

The Rio underwent many significant changes for the 2012 and 2013 model years so updates for 2014 are few. The latest version of Kia’s UVO system, which communicates with your smartphone to provide information such as vehicle diagnostics, is new to the lineup. It also uses Google Maps and automatically connects to 911 if the airbags deploy.

Choosing Your Kia Rio

Whether you choose a sedan or hatchback body style, all Rios have a 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that sends 138 horsepower to the front wheels through a standard six-speed manual or optional six-speed automatic transmission. It's an efficient engine, and the Kia Rio returns up to 37 mpg highway. Also standard across the range are four-wheel disc brakes.

With a starting MSRP under $14,000, the base LX is one of the least expensive cars on the market, and features are few. Highlights include power windows, keyless entry and a SiriusXM satellite radio. A short option list includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a few other items.

The mid-level EX adds desirable standard features like Bluetooth with steering wheel-mounted controls, a gas-saving stop-start system for the engine, power-folding mirrors and a rearview camera. The EX also comes with 15-inch alloy wheels.

The top-of-the-line Rio adds near-luxury features like a sport-tuned suspension with 17-inch alloy wheels, a moonroof, navigation with voice command, and paddle shifters with the optional 6-speed automatic. It's a lot of equipment, but an SX also costs $4,000 more than a base LX.

CarsDirect Tip

Cross-shop the Rio with the closely related Hyundai Accent and decide which feels more comfortable. Although the most enjoyable Rio to drive, the SX has a price that puts in competition with more substantial cars. That means our pick of the lineup is the mid-range EX.
