The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 Kia Rio is a good choice among subcompacts and it’s stylish, but standard anti-lock brakes and better side-impact protection would help its case against the Honda Fit. At a bargain price that’s not much more than stripper econoboxes, the 2008 Scion xD is a pretty hot little hatch.
