    More information about the 2012 Kia Rio:

    Better fuel economy yet more power (versus last year) 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, 2012 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. Also of interest to those looking to make a green vehicle choice, Kia notes that 85 percent of the Rio's materials are recyclable at the end of the vehicle's lifespan, and seat foams are 100-percent biodegradable. The Rio's improved design, inside and out its stronger body structure and enhanced safety and its smooth new direct-injection engine and six-speed transmissions are all other very good reasons to consider the Rio, in this crowded class that includes the Ford Fiesta, Chevrolet Sonic, MAZDA2, Honda Fit, and Toyota Yaris among others.

    Strengths of this model include Excellent gas mileage, value for the money, comfortable interior, smooth, refined engines and transmissions, maneuverability, innovative Idle Stop and Go, and improved safety

    We look forward to seeing you soon! Please call us for more information.
