It Takes One Word to Describe the Top Compact - Rio

The 2016 Kia Rio not only has superior power and fuel economy to the 2016 Nissan Versa, it handles tight spaces like no other, with an outstanding 33.5-foot curb-to-curb turning circle, besting the 2016 Versa's average 34.8-foot figure. And when you drive a Kia vehicle like the 2016 Rio, you do so with the knowledge that you have the best warranty coverage in the business backing you up, should engine parts need replacing (within the terms of the coverage) - you'll get five additional years of powertrain coverage and two extra years of bumper-to-bumper coverage with the 2016 Rio, or 10 years/100,000 miles for limited powertrain coverage and five years/60,000 miles bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage. That's an outstanding promise that a Kia is built to last. And you also get to enjoy nice tech in the 2016 Rio, like available UVO infotainment and an available seven-inch color touchscreen with voice-command navigation.
