Dewho, honestly, is crazy. Fortunately, there are still plenty of solid, affordable cars for shoppers on a budget, and one of our favorites is the compact Kia Rio.
Kia this week confirmed prices for its 2022 Rio lineup, and it remains one of the least expensive new cars available today. The base price of a 2022 Rio LX is just $ 17,145, while the slightly more upscale Rio S comes in at $ 17,785. (Both prices include a $ 995 destination charge.) Kia offers the Rio as both a four-door sedan and five-door hatchback, and there is no price difference depending on body style.
The only major option is a technology package, available only on the Rio S. For an additional $ 1,800, this technical package adds pre-collision warning, lane departure warning, lane departure warning, departure warning, LED headlights, tire pressure monitoring, automatic climate control, push button start, alloy wheels, rear disc brakes (instead of drums!) and more. This is definitely a valuable addition if you can swing it.
The Rio goes into 2022 with only a few minor changes, the most notable of which is the adaptation of. Both LX and S models are powered by a 1.6-liter I4 engine, producing 120 hp and 112 pound-feet of torque. But what the Rio lacks in power it does with great fuel efficiency; both the sedan and hatchback are rumored to combine 33 mpg city, 41 mpg highway and 36 mpg combined.
Despite its ultra-low price, there are still several cars that glide under Rio’s launch MSRP. The Mitsubishi Mirage G4 sedan comes in at $ 16,290 including destination, and the Nissan Versa investigates that with a few hundred dollars, at $ 15,955. The cheapest new car in the US is the offer of five doors from Mitsubishi, the 2021 Mirage hatchback, priced at $ 15,290. However, the Rio is a much nicer car than all these, and it is now available at Kia dealers.
