Great for big city or young person.

I love my car. It's a small car with great gas mileage. I have never had any major problems and I've put thousands and thousands of miles on it in a few short years. The interior is very next. I would recommend this car to a young person just starting out or someone that live in a big city. Its inexpensive and great fuel economy and small to squeeze into tight places.

Safe and secure for all who drive it.

My car is safe and reliable. I really enjoy driving it as it is not light so the wind does not tussle anything when driving on the highway. The cosmetics of the car are amazing and it has a lot of room in the trunk. I like the manual seats as well as manual gas tank and trunk opening. This car is amazing for mileage.

I love my Kia Rio, though there are some drawbacks (with my version, at least).

My car is very reliable. I keep up to date with oil changes and maintenance, and have never had the car break down on me. The version of the Kia Rio that I have does not have cruise control or Bluetooth, which does somewhat lower my opinion, but overall the car is smooth when driving, and is very easy to handle.
