The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.7
4.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Kia Rio is a subcompact competitor that's falling behind the times. There are better cars out there for sure, but are there better deals? The 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage likely won't delight you or impress your passengers all that much, but it's a lot of efficient transportation for the dollar.
