If it’s affordability you’re after, the 2001 Kia Rio takes the cake. As one of the most inexpensively priced vehicles on the market, buyers can purchase brand new for next to nothing. The Rio is offered in four door Sedan body style with your choice of manual or automatic transmission. Under the hood, the Kia Rio features a 96 horsepower 1.5-liter inline 4-cylinder with EPA estimates in the 25 City/30 Highway range. Though not extensively equipped, the Rio covers the basics with air conditioning, power locks, steering and windows, ABS brakes and a trunk release.
