2013 Kia Rio is a subcompact vehicle which is available as a 4-door sedan and a 4-door hatchback. This car will be also available in three trim levels namely LX, EX and SX. As a matter of fact the car has become among the best subcompact vehicles that everyone in the world can buy since its redesign last year. It begins with the car’s styling which isn’t just gorgeous but also manages to avoid the awkward proportions associated with other small sedans.
Towards the interior, the cabin of 2013 Kia Rio offers the restrained yet classy design that may evoke the German vehicles. The EX and SX models actually come with the higher-quality cabin materials and near-luxury levels of equipment. In the subcompact segment, Rio can also be considered as the finest since it comes with soft-touch surfaces, armrest cushioning and attractive metallic accents at the upper trims. The car also provides the adequate and comfortable spaces for both driver and passengers. Even the tall drivers can sit comfortably behind the available tilt-and-telescoping wheel while the backseat presents the very comfortable space.
The 2013 Kia Rio LX comes with the 15 inches steel wheels along with the power windows, power locks and keyless entry. The EX model includes the 15-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, fog lamps and the power-folding mirrors. The SX model boasts the EX Convenience package items plus the 17 inches wheels, a sport-tuned suspension along with the LED running lights and taillights. The SX Premium package comes with a sunroof and also the keyless ignition/entry.
