Starting at | Starting at 27 MPG City - 36 MPG Highway
The 2011 Kia Rio is one of the lowest-priced cars for sale in the U.S., and it is also one of the more fuel-efficient with a EPA highway rating of up to 36 mpg. It 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.
For 2011, manual transmission availability shrinks to the base trim, on which it is the only available transmission option.
All 2011 Kia Rio models are powered by a 110-horsepower, 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine, matched with either a standard 5-speed manual or available 4-speed automatic transmission, and all are front-wheel drive. With the 5-speed manual, the Rio returns 28 mpg city, 34 mpg highway in the EPA cycle. The Rio does slightly better with the automatic transmission, returning 36 mpg on the highway.
