If you're a college student, a young family looking for a first car, or just a driver who likes to have fun and save money on gas, then the compact class is a nice fit. Two fine examples of these automobiles are the 2016 Kia Rio 5-Door and the 2016 Honda Fit. Both are hatchbacks that give you versatility and easy access to cargo room so that you're ready for whatever obstacles you may face on life's highways and byways.

The 2016 Kia Rio gets great gas mileage with 27 mpg city, 37 mpg highway and it handles nicely in tight spaces, with a superb 33.5-foot curb-to-curb turning circle, easily topping the 2016 Fit's 35.1 foot figure. The 2016 Rio 5-Door has a small frame, but it's still heavier than the 2016 Honda Fit at 2,729 pounds in base models compared to the 2016 Fit's 2,513, which makes the Rio more heavy-duty in case of an impact.

Let's look beyond the money you'll save on gas with the Rio 5-Door - this fun compact is available starting at $12,465 at Friendly Kia with our VIP Price, which is nearly $5,000 less than the competition's price for the 2016 Honda Fit that starts at around $17,425 for base models. Now that's a savings of more than 25 percent, and that's before you factor in the many other edges the Kia Rio 5-Door has.

Come See the Brio of the Kia Rio - Test Drive One Today

Brio means "vigor or vivacity of style or performance," and that fits the 2016 Kia Rio 5-Door to a tee. You'll feel a similar amount of brio when we tell you that Kia offers a more comprehensive warranty package than Honda does. The 2016 Kia Rio 5-Door comes with limited powertrain coverage for 10 years/100,000 miles and basic limited warranty coverage for five years/60,000 miles, while the Honda Fit checks in with a shorter term of five years/60,000 miles for a limited powertrain warranty and a three-year/36,000-mile limited basic warranty. When you consider the 2016 Kia Rio also comes with voice-command navigation and push-button start in SX models as well as standard Bluetooth connectivity with your smartphone in all models, you have the whole package in this car. 

The Kia Rio 5-Door is a fun, feature-filled and affordable compact, and is clearly the better vehicle. So come on in to look at, test drive or purchase this fun, fuel-efficient car - in either the sedan style or five-door hatchback form - at 5819 US Highway 19 in New Port Richey, FL, about 20 miles from Clearwater, less than 40 miles from Tampa, and less than 25 miles from Spring Hill.
