When it comes to selecting the perfect subcompact car, you want to think beyond simply the price tag. After all, there are plenty of models on the road which allow you to pay very little while also not returning any real value. This small class has become a class where drivers know they can have an inexpensive vehicle that also looks great and is loaded with notable features. Gone are the days when buying a subcompact car meant sacrificing assurances of dependability or enjoyment.

The Kia Rio is a model which has lead this paradigm shift. All-new for 2018, the 2019 Kia Rio brings its fun and whimsical personality to a class of vehicles obsessed only with undercutting one another on price. Luckily, it’s also one of the best values in the class. Up against the 2019 Kia Rio, is the 2019 Hyundai Accent. Let’s see how they do!

Subcompact Value is Yours in the 2019 Kia Rio!

While Hyundai and Kia are related, the gap between the similarly-sized 2019 Kia Rio and 2019 Hyundai Accent show that the manufacturers still have their differences. For Kia, this means offering a standard, smooth-shifting automatic transmission, allowing drivers to choose between a sedan or hatchback and giving you more mileage for each gallon of gas.
