(2002 model shown)


Continuing for 2005 with only minor updates as among the least-expensive cars on the road, the subcompact Rio sedan and the Rio Cinco station wagon, come with a 104-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and a five-speed-manual transmission; a four-speed-automatic is optional. While few amenities are included with the base version, the Rio does come with the same generous warranty coverage as costlier Kias. Features like power steering, anti-lock brakes, air conditioning, a CD stereo and a tilt steering wheel are optional or are included in higher trim levels.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
