Peppy little gem by Maurice from Montreal Canada on 02/21/2009. Trim: 2007 Kia Rio5 SX, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Ideal as a city vehicle, 2nd vehicle. For the size, the interior is fairly roomy, and with the back seats folded, it can haul plenty. It will be 2 years, now, no trouble at all, nothing to report. The quietness of the vehicle on the highway is surprising, it handles the road quite well, and has enough power to do the job nicely. Our litte Kia comes full equipped, even heated seats. Very economical to drive and maintain. I also have an Outlook, and, this is much more fun to drive.
Cons: I found the looks great except for the front end, but now, I'm sort of used to it, and find it nice. It's a popular vehicle in Europe as on a recent trip, I saw plenty of them. And now, that I own one, well, I can see why.
Overall review: I hesitated a lot before opting for this vehicle, but now, frankly it's obvious the Kia company has come a long way.

A great car for the Money by BigPhil AZ on 02/03/2007. Trim: 2007 Kia Rio5 SX, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: very good looking little car ,roomy I'm 6'2 and fit without a problem. interior is very sporty looking, leather wrap steering wheel , great sound system ,I was very surprise about getting a sound system that good for such a small price
Cons: if you rev it up a little you won't get the gas milage that's on the sticker , but overall not bad
Overall review: overall , you get a good looking , well equipped car, for far more less than the competition. Kia gets better and better every year and with a 10yrs 100,000 miles warranty you can't go wrong

It's great, for what it is. by Marc Abian on 04/28/2012. Trim: 2007 Kia Rio5 SX, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Affordable, reliable transportation with about as much cargo space as you'll find in this price range, and with this kind of mileage.
Cons: Seats get uncomfortable on long road trips, interior plastic scratches easily.
Overall review: It's a small-ish low price hatchback. It doesn't explode off the line, it doesn't handle amazingly well, and the interior finish is pretty basic. For the price and the fuel economy, however, it's great. 80,000 miles with no repair expenses other than routine maintenance - and new headlights. Hard to beat that, when those are 80% Los Angeles traffic miles.
