If you're in the market for an efficient car with an outstanding price, consider the 2018 Kia Rio. Here's a look at some stats on why the Rio could be just what you're looking for.

$14,000

The Rio has a starting sticker of around $14,000. Take into account what you get for that $14,000. First of all, Kia's warranty is very impressive. From there the list goes on and on, including a complete redesign with stylish 15-inch alloys.

7-Inch Screen

The Rio also has a very impressive interior. The floating display has an available user-friendly 7-in screen. You can also opt for a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob -- even some partial leather accents and red interior trim.

37 Miles Per Gallon

All Rios, whether they're equipped with a manual or automatic transmission, return 37 mpg on the highway. That number stays true to the sedan and 5-door hatchback versions as well, and 37 mpg translates to pretty serious savings at the pump.

130 Horsepower

The sole engine is a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder rated at 130 hp. Now, for a car of this size, that's pretty decent power. The Rio, however, really shined through turns and corners, where it offered a lot more fun than we had expected.

13.7-Foot Trunk With Sedan

If you're interested in the Rio sedan, keep in mind the trunk only has about 13.7 cu ft. That's a bit on the lower side, even for a subcompact car. If cargo space is a top priority, consider the 5-door Rio with over 17 cu ft. behind the rear seats, and 32.8 cu ft. with the rear seats folded flat.

Autotrader Says

The Kia Rio offers a lot for those who want to buy something new, but don't want to spend a lot of cash. If you want a great value for your dollar, check out the 2018 Kia Rio.
