Review

The Kia Rio is a promising small car with price on its side, while its turbocharged engines are perfectly competent both around town and at faster motorway speeds. It’s a shame the entry-level trim does without AEB, but higher trims offer much more for your money. However, rivals such as the Ford Fiesta ride much better and are overall more fun to drive.
