The Rio is a perky, well-equipped and fuel-efficient sedan or five-door hatchback—and as a Kia, it’s a great value. The 1.6-liter four-cylinder makes 138 hp and drives the front wheels through either a six-speed manual or slow-shifting six-speed automatic. The base LX has manual door locks and windows, A/C, and satellite radio. The EX gets power windows, cruise, and remote keyless entry. The SX is sporty, with 17-inch alloy wheels, sport suspension, nav, heated leather seats, and a sunroof.
