2017 Kia Rio vs. 2017 Toyota Yaris iA
There are few cars on the road that bring the party to you, as opposed to the other way around, but the 2017 Kia Rio subcompact is one of them, with a combination of lightweight construction, nice handling, cool available tech (UVO eServices, for syncing up your phone and music) for a subcompact, and fun color options. The 2017 Toyota Yaris iA is also a fun subcompact, but falls short in performance and price, for starters.
The 2017 Kia Rio pumps out 138 horsepower, which is marvelous for a small car, while the 2017 Yaris iA only can manage 106 HP. It's not a crazy question to wonder if the iA will need a push to get over steeper hills. In addition, the 2017 Rio is priced at less than $13,000 at Friendly Kia with our VIP Price, while the competition is asking for $17,000 and up for the Yaris iA.
