Greatest subcompact motor vehicle: Kia Rio
A 12 months back, I gave the to start with-location ribbon in this class to the Hyundai Venue, a brand-new pocket-sized crossover dependent on the very same platform as the Accent subcompact. This 12 months, it truly is yet another Korean product that wins, and that’d because this auto basically delivers as substantially as – if not more than – its utilitarian Hyundai cousin.
In fact, the Rio is is not even fewer utilitarian (examine: useful) than the Venue, while retaining its belongings as a nimble auto with a sporty edge. What is more, its foundation cost is a little bit decreased. In the meantime a comparison of the powertrains yields a tie, considering the fact that both of those share the very same parts.
As a cherry on the sundae, guide transmission fans can rejoice: the Rio can be requested in LX or LX+ trim with these types of a gearbox. Other versions get the very same continuously variable (CVT) unit that sits in the Hyundai.
In addition to the evidently-practically-similar Hyundai Venue, I should mention in the class the Chevrolet Spark, just the most very affordable subcompact in the place.
