2012 Kia Rio5 EX

2012 Kia Rio5 Review

(2 Stars) 

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

When looking for the right car, everyone knows choice is important. With the 2012 Kia Rio5, the Japanese company offered plenty of options. The Rio5 is available as a sedan or hatchback in one of three well appointed trim levels. The exterior of the car is unique and sure to attract attention wherever it goes. Inside the cabin, there is no denying the thought and attention to detail that went into designing the model. While it isn’t a muscle car by any stretch of the imagination, the Rio5 performs at least as well as its competitors on the road. This model is attractive and fun with lots of regular standard and safety features.
