The backup camera. It comes standard and is very helpful for parking.

My Rio is pretty comfortable, definitely not the most comfortable but definitely does not qualify for uncomfortable. It performs really well, speeds up quickly and has great gas mileage. It came standard with a backup camera, cruise control, sunglass holder, and Bluetooth. The center console is small but fits what I need it to. The console in the front under the radio is pretty big and convenient to place chapstick, phone, etc. In. There are also two cup holders of ample size along with water bottle holders in the sides of the doors on all 4 of my doors.

Fun commuter car for a good price.

I have owned this car for 6 months and 19000 miles. It's a really fantastic vehicle. One thing I have noticed is that the interior plastic gets scratched really easily. For such a small car it has tons of room and storage. Gas mileage is usually 43-50 MPG in WNC. The vehicle is difficult to self service though. There is no accessible power steering fluid reservoir. The steering is fun and precise and the brakes are good but not too sensitive. Being a lightweight car is has really good pickup and sport mode. I would give a 9/10

for how small it is and how low to the ground it is handles various terrain well

No problems so far with the vehicle. Performance wise it runs smoothly, and quietly so far drives really well on most terrains, gas mileage is amazing. Reliability wise I haven't had any issues with it I drive it back and forth to work, and have taken several trips with it no problem. Seating is very comfortable for a hatchback (tall people friendly). I love all of the features to this vehicle to the extra buttons on the steering wheel to the sport mode button for when you're feeling like a race car driver!
