The Kia Rio and Rio5-door form a line of subcompact cars produced by Kia Motors since the 2001 model year. When released, the Rio was the least expensive mass-produced car sold in the United States. Based off the Ford Festiva, the original Kia Rio was known as the Rio Cinco in the United States and held a variety of nameplates worldwide. The Kia Rio was initially designed with an ascetic outer body style that mimicked European-style compact cars and belied the fun to drive Rio's capabilities and comfortable interior. The second generation fixed this problem in 2006 by giving the Rio an exterior makeover and an engine with greater horsepower. Edmunds.com commented that the second generation Rio, "?is pleasant to drive, loaded with features and surprisingly comfortable." Today, the Rio continues to sell well in the United States due to its astonishing affordability, above-average gas mileage and a well-equipped interior. Houston Kia shoppers should head to Joe Myers Kia and take advantage of their large inventory of new and used Kia Rio cars.
