Kia Rio

If you have been shopping around for a new vehicle but have not found success due to financial constraints, look no further than the Kia Rio. The Korean based manufacturer first introduced this stylish, front wheel drive, four door sedan in the 2001 model year. Upon its debut, the Rio was hailed as being the lowest priced sedan available in the United States, and has managed to remain an outstanding economic value over the years. As an added bonus, the vehicle is one that provides great gas mileage, and comes backed by Kia's traditional, unmatched, ten year/100,000 mile power train warranty with five years of complementary road side assistance. A four speed automatic overdrive transmission is an alternative option to the Rio's standard five speed manual overdrive. When this auto was first rolled onto the market, comfort features such as AM/FM cassette, power window and doors, and air conditioning were optional. In 2003, however, air conditioning was added as a standard feature, and an optional stereo with compact disc replaced the tape deck option. For an added sporty feel, a rear spoiler became an option beginning in the 2004 model year. 2006 brought about a redesigned Kia Rio, in addition to a new LX trim. In the LX, compact disc and additional air bags come as part of the standard package. The sophisticated SX trim is brand new for 2007, features all that is found in the LX and more, complete with a leather steering wheel for an added touch of style. In terms of safety, the Kia Rio has consistently scored high marks on the National Crash Safety Test, and antilock brakes can be added, for those who desire extra peace of mind. The Kia Rio is an excellent choice for students or anyone else living on a tight budget and a practical, everyday use vehicle.
