Good fuel economy and decent power are probably two of the central points that will ring relevant to those cross-shopping the Rio against any of the competition. In addition to being one of the lowest-priced cars in the U.S. market, the 2013 Rio is the first vehicle that's not either a hybrid or luxury model to feature fuel-saving engine start/stop technology, which momentarily shuts the engine off at stoplights. Kia notes that 85 percent of the Rio's materials are recyclable at the end of the vehicle's lifespan and that seat foams are 100-percent biodegradable.
Following a complete redesign for 2012, the Kia Rio has no significant changes for 2013.
The 2013 Kia Rio comes in sedan or 5-door hatchback bodystyles and is offered in three different trim levels: LX, EX and SX. Regardless of the model, all Rios are powered by a 138-hp 1.6L 4-cylinder engine. LX models come with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, while the other two trims only get the automatic. Although the system makes little difference in the official EPA ratings, those who commute in stop-and-go conditions might notice an improvement of several miles per gallon.
