For 2013, Kia offers its Idle Stop and Go (ISG) technology as part of the Rio EX's Eco package. ISG automatically shuts down the engine when stopped and then restarts it once the gas pedal is depressed. Also new are steering-wheel paddle shifters on the Rio SX.

2012 Kia Rio

The Kia Rio has been completely revamped for 2012 and has an even lower price tag. It's still available as a 4-door sedan, but adds a 5-door hatchback design, both of which sport a new look, a new engine and enough tech-savvy features to make others in its class jealous.

About Kia Rio

Kia’s 2016 Rio sedan and Rio 5-door subcompacts may be small and inexpensive, but you’d never know it from looking at the pair. The Rio stands out from the Nissan Versa and Chevy Sonic by offering an impressive list of standard and available features, such as Kia’s UVO infotainment system, power-folding side mirrors and navigation. Kia’s 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty is also standard, nearly double what is offered by the Honda Fit, Scion iA or Ford Fiesta. Having come a long way from the first subcompacts to hit U.S. shores, the Kia Rio and Rio 5-door prove you can have good fuel economy and a low car payment without feeling like you’ve had to sacrifice much to get both.

"I went to the dealership with intentions on buying a toyota camry. The Rio was next to the camry and it's red color caught my eye so I asked to test drive it. What a great surprise! It's very roomy on the inside and the body is a sleek, sporty design that I really love. It had a lot of features the camry didn't offer, such as the warranty, satellite radio, and eco function for gas. I have had it for about 2 months and so far no complaints! Really great on gas, and handles well on the road. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants a sporty sedan, with bells and whistles, without the high costs. Great for the price! Good luck :-)"
