I was very excited to be given the opportunity to be able to review the 2013 Kia Rio SX! I was able to drive it around for one week to see what I thought about it. Let me first tell you a little bit about it before I tell you my opinions on the car!
The 2013 Kia Rio SX is a four door sedan that seats up to 5. It gets an average of 31 miles per gallon in gas mileage. It has power windows and door locks, AM/FM/CD/MP3 radio along with Sirius Satellite Radio availability. It has Bluetooth Wireless Technology and USB and Auxillary input jacks. This particular Rio had leather seats as well as heated seats! Also this Kia has key-less entry and start up!
A few of my husband's favorite features included the key-less start up and the good gas mileage! The key-less start up and entry was very nice. As long as your were within a few feet of the car with the lock and unlock control you could lock and unlock the car just by pressing a button on the door. Then once you are in, as long as you have your foot on the break, you can start it up just by pressing a button. The gas mileage was pretty nice too! The average miles per gallon for this car is 31. But when I was driving it I usually got around 33 mpgs. We took two longer rides (about an hour each there and back) and on the interstate it got up to 38 mpgs!
One thing I didn't love about the Kia Rio was that it was a little bit cramped in the back for the kids, especially with Isaac still rear facing in his carseat. There was plenty of room for them, just not much room for anything else. Plus they were a lot closer than they are in our car, so they kept bothering and touching each other! They were just a little bit closer than I would have preferred. Not a huge deal, but still something to think about.
I could go on and on about all the cool features of this car but the ones above are the ones we liked best! It drove good and was the perfect size for me as far as driving it went.The 2013 Kia Rio SX is a great car for small families or individuals! I really enjoyed being able to test drive it for a week and the kids were even sad to see it go!
