The Rio may have grown since the third-generation car, but it’s worth remembering that it’s still a small car. Front seat passengers certainly have plenty of room above and in front of them, but you might find yourself rubbing elbows with you passenger on occasion. Storage is good, however.
The door pockets are shaped to accept a bottle of water with ease and can even hold a medium coffee upright. Between the seats are another couple of cup holders and in ‘2’ trim and above, a storage box between the front seats. There are also a couple of handy shelves beneath the heater controls that can hold even a large smartphone.
