Special features for 2008
The 2008 Kia Rio is one of the lowest-priced cars for sale in the U.S., and is also one of the more fuel-efficient with a city EPA rating of up to 32 mpg. It also stands out for its nicely tuned suspension, which offers a less choppy ride than many other small cars, and for its generous interior space; according to Kia, the Rio sedan's 92.2 cubic feet of passenger volume is larger than either the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. The Rio is also especially attractive for its warranty coverage--Kia offers a five-year or 60,000-mile limited warranty, 10 years or 100,000 miles on powertrain, and five years or 60,000 miles of roadside assistance.
