        Best Car with Great Features and Runs Well

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        I have not had any problems with my vehicle. The only slight issue I had was the windshield wipers that the car came with, when it rained, the rain would get smeared on my windshield and made it very hard to see. It runs good and does not let me down when I need to gain speed going up a hill or going around trucks. I am pleased with the overall performance of my car. I can comfortably fit five people in the car and a trunk full of items or a car full of enough items to fill a whole furnished apartment. It's a very reliable car. I've had it for about three years now and I never had any issues in it doing anything weird or anything negative happening to my car. I have the manual version of the car. The transmission works will as well as the shifting system, it is smooth and doesn't require too much effort from the driver. The windows crank up and down smoothly. I like not having a middle console in my car as it gives me more space to put other things. Everything in the car is very easy to use and is very user friendly and was nicely explained when I bought the car. This is the best car I have ever bought and used. I will be suggesting this car to other people since it's been a reliable car that is comfortable and performs extremely well. I am very pleased with it.

        Kia Rio - a fun little surprise.

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        This is a great little car. The interior is much roomier than what it looks like from the outside. I have had 3 decent size men in the back seat without a problem. The car I have is automatic, but it can shift into manual mode which was great when it started snowing unexpectedly and I needed to stay in first and second gear so I wouldn't slide off the road ( I was coming down a mountain). It has decent pickup for getting on the freeway and is great on gas. There is a gauge on the dashboard that tells you approximately how many miles you have before you run out of gas. My model has an eco drive mode, which saves on gas when you do not need a lot of power, like when you are accelerating onto the freeway. So, it is great on the freeway when traffic is flowing and if you need more power, it is easy to put it in regular mode quickly. The car has Bluetooth, so I can answer the phone from my steering wheel while still keeping my eye on the road. The trunk is huge! I have 2 milk crates full of stuff in my trunk and still have room for groceries. I am normally prefer trucks and SUVs, but for a small car, it has a lot of great features.

        I love my Kia Rio, I would definitely recommend it.

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        My vehicle is reliable! It gets me from a-b and more! I haven't encountered any serious maintenance issues with my car. It does not burn up a lot of gas and I have been satisfied with my overall purchase of this vehicle. I must say that if you are looking for a spacious vehicle, this is not the car for you. It is subcompact and it gets pretty crowded.

        CUTE YELLOW 2016 Kia RIO LX

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        I really do love my car, the car is a good size with four doors and a nice size trunk. This car is great on performance and is very reliable. I got this car used, with one previous owner and in my two years of having it I haven't had any significant problems. The only downside is that there is no cruise control so long trips can be a pain.

        Vehicle and details of good and bad.

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        The vehicle is to small for me not enough leg room or even traveling back and forth from show to show need more room for sure, I love Mileage I get on it, I have a couple problems with the engine first couple months I had it and the latch on the truck had to have it replaced completely quit working all together.

        Good price for the amount of car you get.

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        Good gas mileage. Economic. Easy to handle. Drives very well. Just the right size. Not to big or small. Loaded with options. Plenty of room. Large trunk to carry just about anything. Comfortable seats. Eco gas feature. Plenty of leg space. Large glove compartment. Automatic key control. Alarm system.

        Bright color. Comfortable ride.

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        Small but comfortable . Great for city life and small trips. Yellow color is a little bright but easy to find in a lot. Can fit a family of four well. Good gas mileage. Rides well . Doesn't take bumps well. Easy for first time drivers like our teenagers. I would recommend to people for a first time car.

        Kia Rio, good for first time driver's with limited budget

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        Decent car, mainly was used to help with driving education and practice. Not quite big enough for our needs, passengers but still somewhat reliable. 4 door compact sedan, no power locks, white. Relatively easy steering and maneuverability. Get decent mileage, approximately 25+ miles per gallon.

        The 2016 Kia Rio has amazing interior that is easy to keep clean!

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        The 2016 Kia Rio has amazing gas mileage. Its gets about 44 miles to the gallon Hwy mileage. It's a very simple car which I like but I would love to see automatic windows. What is my only downfall. The car is fairly cheap to maintain as well which is nice. Parts are not expensive at all.

        - Emma G

        Compact that feels like a mid size

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        Was looking for a fuel efficiency vehicle and one that was comfortable for a compact car a great feature it will tell you your tires are low it helps with no sudden expenses to expect The truck is a good size to pack for Vacation road trips nice sound system with Bluetooth

        Kia Rio is the way to go if you're looking to save money!

        2016 Kia Rio LX

        This is really a gas saver especially if you have a long commute to work. I would not recommend it as a family car unless you only have one kid. It is very compact. I purchased this car b/c it's cute & didn't break the bank. It's not expensive to insure neither.
