how tall are you

A word of warning to anyone who has limited mobility or elderly persons,
the passenger seat has no adjustment & is very low set. This makes it so
that you feel you fall into the seat & makes it extremely difficult to get
out of. Having owned the old Rio 5 previously, this was very disappointing
& lost KIA a sale!

What do you mean?

LZSchneider says:

“Kissing cousin”? Oh dear. lol Good review though. xD

The Nissan Versa blew the Rio out of the water in 2012 Sales. Not saying
it’s better but much higher sales numbers. 2012 USA sales Nissan Versa =
113,327 cars sold 2012 USA sales Kia Rio = 40,275 cars sold (Source: Good
Car Bad Car website)

MrKikoboy says:

4 wheel brakes at every corner…wow….

tearfromthared says:

Four wheel brakes? What will those crazy Koreans think of next?

Go test drive a used one of these with around 20K miles on it. I guarantee
that you’ll see the REAL value of it. You’ll see that it’s great at
presentations, Not longevity.

fire3048 says:

If you bothered to read the comment properly it was the passenger seat I
was talking about!

Dark0blivion says:

It’s not that bad. Fuelly is the best source for MPG, and if you look up
the Rio it’s pretty decent.

Alex Pana says:

a little too small

Champion Champ says:

is kia reliable?

stanleycjohn says:

that is ridiculously ugly omg. I kinda liked the old one but this is just
digusting

jerseytoman1212 says:

they should of made a two door like this..

STfrontiersman says:

would be sweet if kia put this car out with a AWD hatchback option.

PetkofBlog says:

This is ridiculous.. Fuel economy? Really? In the USA? 136 hp for this
small car is fuel economy? The EU versions advertise 75 hp diesel with fuel
consumption 3,2 liters/100 kilometers combined! That is fuel economy, not
136 hp for a car that is with the size of a bike…

@jerseytoman1212 Next year..

@marklethanarkle I believe there is a power button for the start stop
function so you leave it off

zygotegirl says:

HOLLY SHIT!!! DUDE, YOU GOT TO LOSE THAT NASTY AMERICAN BEER BELLY. WHY DO
THE USA ALWAYS HAVE FAT AND UGLY MEN DOING AUTO REVIEW. FOR GOD SAKE,
PLEASE SOME HOT STUD GUY WITH SEXY BODY AND FACE DO AUTO REVIEWS LIKE WHAT
THEY DO IN EUROPE.

I wish they hybrid this car

racers115 says:

I wanted to test drive one of these with a manual transmission, but of the
5 KIA dealerships near me, NONE of them had a 5door with a manual
transmission. That was back in 2012, so I waited for the 2013 to come out
and guess what, 8 months later and still not even one 5door to be found in
a manual transmission, so gave up on KIA.

garattyfisher says:

For wheel brakes and “echo”…What a noob.

Terrence choe says:

get either the hyundai accent or kia rio. nothing else compares to the
power, fuel economy, and overall bang for your buck!

Sam Harris says:

I love this car, the way I drive I get 29.8 miles city, and 41.3 on the
highway 🙂
