The Kia Rio is one of the best-looking cars the brand has ever made, which is a good thing because it is a direct rival to the classy-looking Ford Fiesta. The Kia Rio offers class-leading economy, but is also fun to drive, and comfortable to travel in.

There is a decent amount of space for adults, even in the back, and the Kia gets good levels of equipment for the price. The Kia Rio also comes with the manufacturer's excellent seven-year/100,000 mile warranty, which should prove attractive to anyone looking for worry-free motoring.
