28 mpg city, 36 highway (automatic); 29/37 (manual); 30/36 (automatic Eco)
EPA

No worries, as the 5-door scooted around other traffic with the heart of a determined champion and delivered an average for the trip of just over 35 mpg according to the on-board trip computer.
Autoblog

the Rio and Accent tie for second in fuel mileage ratings among all 2012 small cars that are non-hybrid and gasoline-powered.
USA Today

The acronym stands for "Idle Stop and Go," which is a fuel-saving system that turns off the engine when the car is stopped and seamlessly turns it on again when the brake pedal is released. This eco-smart mechanism is good for approximately one more mpg across the board, according to Kia.
Kelley Blue Book

The traffic-congested streets and freeways near our office did our fuel economy no favors, so the best we could manage was about 25 mpg in mixed driving conditions.
Edmunds

The 2014 Kia Rio is reasonably good on gas, thanks to its engine's direct injection technology, and the car's rather lightweight construction in general. But with no models in the lineup getting more than 32 mpg Combined--or even hitting the 40-mpg highway mark--it's not an especially high achiever in fuel economy.

In theory, the Rio is also offered in an Eco model, which includes ISG (Idle Stop and Go) technology that will automatically turn the engine off at some stoplights to save gasoline and automatically restart it when you lift off the brake. Also included in the package are low-rolling resistance tires and a few aerodynamic improvements. We say 'in theory,' because Kia still has cold feet about delivering the package--although we hope they do for 2014.

The 2014 Kia Rio is rated at 28/36 mpg (31 combined) with the automatic transmission or 29/37 (32 combined) with the manual transmission. Get that Eco package and ratings are up to 30/36 mpg (32 combined).

Conclusion

Gas mileage for the 2014 Kia Rio is merely average for its class.

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.
