The Kia Rio gets a couple of minor enhancements for 2014. Without altering the Rio's looks, Kia has managed to improve the car's under-body aerodynamics, where covers have been added under the engine and the rear bumpers. This will ultimately improve fuel efficiency. Minor improvements were also made to the interior, including a nicer leather wrapped steering wheel. A new smart key rounds out the changes for the 2014 Rio.

Good fuel economy and decent power are two of the main points that will ring relevant to those cross-shopping the Rio against any of the competition. In addition to being one of the lowest-priced cars in the U.S. market, the 2014 Rio is unique for being one of the few non-hybrid cars in its class to feature fuel-saving engine start/stop technology, which momentarily shuts the engine off at stoplights. Kia notes that 85 percent of the Rio's materials are recyclable at the end of the vehicle's lifespan and that seat foams are 100-percent biodegradable. The Rio's great design, inside and out, its strong body structure and enhanced safety and its smooth direct-injection engine and 6-speed transmissions are all other very good reasons to consider the Rio in a crowded class that includes the Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Sonic, Mazda2, Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris among others.
