Nimble and nifty, the three-door Kia Rio SLS is a perfect city runabout car.
Style & Drive
The three-door, five-seat Kia Rio SLS was stretched to the limit when we piled in two adults and two small children during our week of test driving. We’re pleased to report that with a rear-facing car capsule and a forward-facing car seat in the back, we all did fit (like sardines) and had a great time zooming around the city in our little dynamo. The Rio turns on a dime, feels solid and safe, and is overall just a really fun car to drive.
The Rio’s interior is well finished and functional. Standard features on the SLS include smart key with push button start, key-free entry, leather-trim seats, and a six-way adjustable driver’s seat. The SLS has a four-speaker stereo system with MP3/AUX/ iPod compatibility, Bluetooth connectivity, and SDVC (Speed Dependent Volume Control.) It also has dusk-sensing headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, 17-inch alloy wheels with a full-size spare wheel, cruise control and climate control air-conditioning.
