The new 2012 Kia Rio has shown the world that fun and affordability in the subcompact market are not impossible to find. With a brand new design brought to the 2012 model year, this new look brings with it a sedan and five-door ride, all with a sleek new body. Along with the improved styling has come the fuel economy many are looking for in a new car.
While the Rio falls under the small car segment, it is quite spacious inside, with the new five doors bringing increased legroom and headroom in the front and rear. Even for taller passengers, there is more than enough room inside the car, giving an almost deceiving feeling to its actual size.
The Rio has great options available such as the reverse parking sensors, Bluetooth connectivity, and steering wheel controls with USB and AUX connectivity. Overall, the interior has a smooth, comfortable layout that doesn't intrude on the comfort or passengers. The 2012 Kia Rio is said to be one of the best small cars to hit the streets after a while, and with a strong powerful and fuel efficient 1.4L Gamma engine, it is no shortage of power to lead to some nice spirited drives through the cities and highways. And while it may not the fastest subcompact on the road, for the price, it really is one of the best ones to drive. Zero to sixty is achieved in less than 9 seconds, all while maintain 12.75 km/liter in the city and 17km/liter on the highway. With a great amount of comfort and safety also factored into this small car as standard, including optional six airbags, this is also a great car for any driver on the road.
