Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Kia Rio hatchback?

The Hyundai i20 is another good-value offering from Korea. Unlike the Rio, this car has a shorter warranty, at five years, but it’s still better than those of most mainstream rivals. You have a similar choice of engines and the i20 is also very well equipped.

The Skoda Fabia may not look as posh as a Volkswagen Polo, but all the dashboard controls have the same feeling of quality and its shared infotainment system is one of the best in the class. You also get a wide range of quiet petrol engines and an efficient diesel.

Overview

The Kia Rio is a likeable small car and a good used buy. Some of its rivals do things better, though 

  • Well equipped
  • Spacious rear seat and boot
  • Refined petrol engines
  • Fidgety ride in town
  • So-so handling
  • Average security rating
