The 2008 Kia Rio5.
Being practical doesn't mean you have to take the joy out of life. That's the thinking behind the Rio5. With a host of standard features, and class-leading roominess***, Rio5 likes a good time as much as you do.
On the outside, the Rio5 has a sporty and dynamic look with 15-inch alloy wheels, a sleek body-color rear spoiler and front fog lights.
The roomy Rio5 interior is not only spacious and comfortable, it's equipped with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, sport-seat fabric, metal pedals and a variety of clever storage spaces for added convenience.
And, best of all, you'll get outstanding estimated highway fuel economy of 35 mpg** and the reliability of Kia's superior 10-year/100,000-mile warranty.
Everything you need. It's easy to see why the Rio5 is a great value and miles ahead of the competition.
*** Based on comparison to 2007 models. ** With automatic transmission. Based on 2008 EPA mileage estimates.
