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

    2018 Kia Rio S

    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.

    2018 Kia Rio S

    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

    Kia makes very nice, comfortable, and reliable cars now.

    2018 Kia Rio S

    I just bought the vehicle, previously a rental car, from a dealership so no issues as of late. Runs very well, engine is generally quiet and drives smoothly. Good gas mileage and the parts are seemingly cheap for replacements(I have a warranty with this so my opinion might vary from the norm). Very comfortable cloth seats, a lot of adjustability. Bluetooth radio, usb plug in, reverse back camera. No cigarette lighter, strangely enough.

    The car gives you an option to drive manually or what feels like manual at least

    2018 Kia Rio S

    It's really good on gas but it's super small. And the car is really lightweight so you feel all the bumps on the road and if it's windy the car feels like it's blowing all over. I don't recommend this car if you plan on having kids. With my son's car seat in the back, whoever ends up sitting in the passenger seat has to sit with their knees in the glove box.

    Spacious for small vehicle.

    2018 Kia Rio S

    Love the car for the most part. Only concern I have had is the very sensitive steering, and I have not yet found a phone holder that works and holds the phone close to eye level. Other than that, it is roomy for a small vehicle and performance is absolutely amazing. Trunk is spacious. Gas mileage is great for both highway and city driving.

    I love the red color of my car!

    2018 Kia Rio S

    No issues since I have had the car. I get good gas mileage which is important to me. Has made it on short commutes as well as trips that are over 13 hours long. All parts of the vehicle have been reliable as well. Only needed to replace the tires, which were due for a replacement earlier this year.

    The Good and Bad of the Rio

    2018 Kia Rio S

    Seats get a little uncomfortable and not many add ons to the car, pretty basic car. However, the car is very reliable. I haven't had one problem with it so far. I got my first oil change the other day and it runs like new. I would recommend this car if your on a budget.

    33 miles per gallon Nice interior Reliable

    2018 Kia Rio S

    It performs very well, it has very good gas mileage. It's a great car for a great price, and has been a very reliable car so far. It is quiet. The car performs very well in the weather conditions, and I love the look of the car. The front of the car looks great.

    - Christopher T

    One proud Kia Rio owner right here

    2018 Kia Rio S

    The car is wonderful! Affordable, great on gas, not a lot of bells and whistles (but that's okay by me). Handles nicely on various terrains. I use it to commute around the congested streets of NOVA/DC, where it does perfectly. Parking it is a breeze, too!
