2017 Kia Rio LX vs. EX Tampa Clearwater St. Petersburg FL

The 2017 Kia Rio is once again the ruler of the subcompact class, a tiny titan of the highways and byways that make up our world. With a small frame and easy handling that makes any maneuver feel like a dream, the 2017 Rio retains its throne, thanks to a lightweight construction that ranges from 2,656 to 2,729 pounds and a curb-to-curb turning circle that is the envy of many a vehicle at 33.5 feet.

Add to this the 2017 Rio's three available transmissions, all of which average 31 combined miles per gallon, and available UVO3 eServices for the top-line EX trim, which give you a 7-inch touchscreen and voice-command navigation, and you have a small car for the ages.

The Kia Rio is the Party-Starter for the Tampa, Clearwater and St. Petersburg FL Area

While the 2017 Kia Rio is small in stature, if you've seen "Avengers" movies of recent years like "Avengers: Civil War" or "Ant-Man", you probably know how skilled and nimble Ant-Man is, and how much fun the character has while fighting crime. We won’t ask you to take on Doctor Doom or anything, but if the road demands evasive action or nice performance, the 2017 Rio's sleek design and better-than-expected 138 horsepower will fill the bill nicely. And with eight available exterior color options, including Signal Red, Urban blue and Aurora Black, you will really stand out when you hit the town for an evening of fun!
