Kia Motors released its new model known as 2011 Rio. It is Kia’s smallest vehicle, as well as its most affordable. It comes in a choice of body styles, either a sedan or a hatchback. Trim levels include a bare-bones Base model, an LX and a sporty SX. It will feature far more attractive exterior appearance as the current model.

The Base is equipped with a standard 1.6-liter, I4, 110-horsepower engine that achieves 28-mpg in the city and 34-mpg on the highway. A 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive is standard. The SX is equipped with a standard 1.6-liter, I4, 110-horsepower engine that achieves 27-mpg in the city and 36-mpg on the highway. A 4-speed automatic transmission with overdrive is standard.

New Rios look attractive, but a little bland, which fits in pretty well with the rest of the subcompact lineup. Changes last year add some sportier touches, like a new exhaust tip. It rolls on 14-inch wheels as standard equipment. This is an inexpensive car, with features such as air-conditioning, four-speaker audio, and dual power ports as options. Yes, power door locks, rear adjustable armrests, and a 60/40 split rear seat are also optional.
