The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Sadly, the 2014 Scion xD is less fun to drive than to look at, though it's spacious for its size. The 2014 Kia Rio holds its own in a tough class of smart, efficient subcompacts -- and pulls ahead of the pack if value and style are top priorities.
