The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.4
5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Kia Rio has a little more personality than some other inexpensive small cars, but low safety scores and a lack of refinement hamper its appeal. If most of your driving is around town with little interstate travel, the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo and Aveo5 are worth a look, especially if you want a bow tie out front.
