The 2008 Kia Rio is one of the lowest-priced cars for sale in the U.S., and is also one of the more fuel-efficient with a city EPA rating of up to 32 mpg. It also stands out for its nicely tuned suspension, which offers a less choppy ride than many other small cars, and for its generous interior space; according to Kia, the Rio sedan's 92.2 cubic feet of passenger volume is larger than either the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla.
A new value-priced Kia Rio5 LX model has been added to the 2008 lineup for those who like the hatchback body style but are on a tight budget. Previously the Rio5 was only available in top SX trim. The value-leader base model is still only offered as a sedan.
All 2008 Kia Rio models are powered by a 110-horsepower, 1.6L four-cylinder engine, matched with either a five-speed manual of four-speed automatic transmission, and all are front-wheel drive. With the five-speed manual, the Rio returns 32 mpg city, 35 mpg highway in the EPA cycle.
