2009 Kia Rio Review
Being practical doesn’t mean you have to take the joy out of life. That's the thinking behind the Rio. It's affordable and likes a good time as much as you do. The 2009 Kia Rio and Rio5 Door has a range of features to make every ride an enjoyable one. On the outside the Rio SX has a sporty dynamic look with standard alloy wheels body-color rear spoiler and available front fog lights. On the inside class-leading roominess ¹ height-adjustable driver's seat fold-down armrest dual cup holders front-door map pockets and available air conditioning. The Rio comes standard with class-leading safety features including six airbags impact-absorbing steering column front and rear crumple zones and side-impact door beams. And best of all you'll get outstanding estimated highway fuel economy of 38 mpg² and the reliability of The Kia Total Protection Package that includes a 10 year/100 000 mile limited powertrain warranty. Everything you need. It's easy to see why the 2009 Rio is a great value and miles ahead of the competition.
