2016 Kia Rio vs. 2016 Ford Fiesta

The 2016 Ford Fiesta sounds like a rollicking good time, but you'll find owning one is anything but a party when you compare the compact to the ever-ready, always fun 2016 Kia Rio. How does the 2016 Rio do it, you ask? Let us count the ways.

When you step into a 2016 Kia Rio, you immediately understand that we don't name our cars after parties, but that the Rio evokes the place where the fun happens, like Rio de Janeiro. The Rio is small in stature abut large in performance for a subcompact, with 134 HP as compared to the 2016 Fiesta's lowly 120 HP. And the 2016 Rio has more size on the inside for passengers at 88.4 cubic feet to the Fiesta's 85.1 cubic feet, while also providing superior curb-to-curb handling, with a 33.5-foot turning circle that outflanks the Fiesta's 34.4 feet. Now if we told you that the Rio had superior power, handling and space when compared with the Fiesta, would you think it was more affordable than the Fiesta? Well, it is at Friendly Kia with our available VIP Pricing, with a starting price of $12,365.
