2011 Kia Rio Review

Compact practical and fuel-efficient: the 2011 Rio has all the basics covered and then some. With its standard 1.6-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine and fuel-saving shift indicator and Eco-Minder indicator technologies Rio moves smartly around town and on the highway while helping you go farther between fill-ups. Rio delivers big-time value for your small-car dollar with surprising roominess and more standard comfort features than you thought you’d find in such a practical car. So why pay more for things like the easy-breathing comfort of a cabin air filtration system a robust audio system with MP3 capability and hands-free Bluetooth cell phone capability. Rio helps protect you and your family from everyday driving concerns with an array of protective and thoughtful standard safety features including dual front airbags height-adjustable front safety belts and rear child-safety door locks. The 2011 Kia Rio now you’re on a roll.
