2013 Kia Rio SX Review

Kia Rio SX Rear

Just a short while ago this cute little 2013 Kia Rio SX graced our driveway with it’s presence and we got to drive it for a week!

One thing that has impressed me with every Kia is the body styling and with the Rio that was no exception. Check out this sleek little sedan –

The drive of the Kia Rio was pretty nice. It has some pep to it and the pick up and go was nice but it could have been a bit smoother for my liking.

The mirrors fold in! I thought that was a nice little feature.


The interior is relatively spacious for this smaller sedan and would comfortably fit two decent size car seats in the rear seating area.ย The bucket seats in the driver and passenger side were comfortable.

The dash is nicely illuminated with red and very easy to read.

The radio and navigation screen have nice large buttons that make it easy to use even while your driving.

I loved having this sunroof for a week!

The Kia Rio SX even has heated seats! They are so nice, even though it was in the 80s when I had to try them out ๐Ÿ™‚

What’s really convenient about Kia’s is they are keyless, so as long as the keys are in the car you just step on the brake and hit the start/stop engine button to start her up. That means I don’t have to dig thru my purse and try to find them while I try and wrangle my girls into the car making it a feature I love.

Another favorite feature on Kia’s is they are so polite. Look, they even welcome you when you start the car and say goodbye once you turn the engine off. Super polite and cute! It put a smile on my face each time ๐Ÿ™‚

I really enjoyed driving this fun little sedan for a week. If your looking for a fun, peppy and affordable sedan I would recommend taking the Kia Rio SX for a spin. The model I drove retails for $21,000 and has a great list of features for the price! You can get a quote now!

  2. I drove a friend of mines Kia and I was really impressed with all the features. I was pleased with the interior, size and most of the gas mileage. Her gas mileage was better than my Toyota! I will definitely take another look at them when I go to buy.
