Special features for 2013
Good fuel economy and decent power are probably two of the central 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 2013 Rio is the first vehicle that's not either a hybrid or luxury model 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.
