This is a sponsored post but all opinions are our own!!!!

I love test driving vehicles and I especially love test driving Kia vehicles.  A  while back I had the opportunity to drive the 2013 Kia Rio SX 5DR for a week and let me tell you that was a really fun car to drive.


We are a family of five so the 2013 Kia Rio SX 5DR isn’t quite big enough for my entire family but this would be an awesome first car for Sabreena.  The Rio that I drove was loaded with satellite radio, navigation, leather seats, push button start and a ton of other awesome features.  It was awesome on gas with an estimated EPA combined city/highway of 31 mpg.  The week I had this car I was driving to Brigantine for work which was 80 miles one way so needless to say I was extremely happy with the gas mileage considering I was driving about 160 miles round trip each day.


The Kia Rio SX 5DR had a very smooth ride as well as very nice pick up for such a small car.  The leg and head room were very nice as well which is important to me considering I am 6’3.  Overall the Kia Rio SX 5DR had everything I could ask for in a car and a lot more.

A few nights while we had the Kia Melinda and I would just take a ride to get out for a little while and enjoy the car.  We really didn’t have anywhere to go but we had a nice new Kia that looked good and we looked good in so we wanted to show it off.  We did have one guy tell us that he really liked the car and that Kia has come a long way in their design and I couldn’t agree more.  The Kia Rio SX 5DR is really sporty and the one we had really fit the bill.  Nice rims, awesome interior, what more could you ask for in a vehicle.

Overall my experience with the Kia Rio SX 5Dr was 5 stars and I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a vehicle that could accommodate four people.

  1. This weekend I was forced to purchase a new car after someone totaled mine from running a red light. I actually looked at a few Kia models and really liked what they had to offer. I agree, the Kia has come a LONG way and I notice a lot more of them on the road than before. They seem to be stepping it up!

  2. Kias are smart little cars. A few of our friends have some of the little SUVs and it always surprises me how much room there is.

  3. I have heard such good things about Kia’s. I have a Honda currently, but it’s getting old and I have been debating checking out a Kia for my next car.

  4. Awesome car. I love all the features!

  5. I am a SUV kind of girl. But I have heard some good things about these cars.

  6. I miss having a “small” fast car at times. Right now we have a minivan, which is great, but I do miss my old cars before kids!

  7. As soon as I saw that car, I was wondering about leg room. You’re a tall, tall man, Rob. I’m glad it was still comfortable for you in spite of that. It’s a cutie pie car!

  8. I’ve actually never driven or been in a Kia before but I always wondered about them. I love the color and it really seems like a great little car.

  9. I bet it was hard to give it back! But I don’t think I could handle it with a family of five, either.

    kia packs SO MANY bells and whistles into their vehicles!! that car is way too small for my family but would be a fab commuter car

  11. Kristen says:

    My husband is looking into a Minivan and is eying the Kia. They really put some nice features into their cars. Thanks for sharing this:)

  12. I like the electric blue colour of this car! That’s all I can say as I’m a bit of a girl when it comes to cars 🙂

  13. Oh, now this looks awesome. We love Kias.

  14. We test drove one just like that, and loved it. I was amazed at the trunk space in a car that looks so tiny from the outside.

  15. This looks like a great car for one of my teenagers. As a family of 6, I think I’m destined to be a minivan or SUV mom for at least a while longer!

  16. Kia has come a long way and this car is awesome. We’ve been looking for a small car and have to check this one out!

  17. I loved reading about your thoughts on this vehicle, while it isn’t the right fit for my family needs, I do love Kia as a brand. They have such great selections of vehicles, much more than they had when I first was in the car buying days!

  18. I’ve always thought that Kia made nice vehicles. We’ve actually even looked at them quite a few times. I love the rear camera feature in a lot of the new cars now…such an awesome safety feature.

  19. I’ve been wanting a Kia because all of the reviews that I’ve seen about it. I’ve been tempted to see if any of the car rental agencies around me have any for us to rent for awhile to see if we like them 🙂

  20. I need a car that can hold a few more people than 4, but this KIA sure is cute! We may look into their SUV line when it is time for a new car.

  21. Ashley M says:

    Such a cute subcompact. Kia offers such incredible value!

  22. Nice looking car – lots of extras and a very good price!

  23. Like you, we have a family of five, so we need a bigger car. But I wish I could have one that was more energy efficient!

  24. What a cute car! Too small for our family of 5 as well, but I LOVE Kia cars. I have the Kia Sorento and it does great on gas as well!

  25. I’d love to test drive that car! It would be a cool beach cruiser! 🙂

  26. I think this car is great for college students!!

  27. This Kia certainly has way more frills and thrills than my Ford has! Maybe we will add it to our test drive list!

  28. One of our neighbors has a Kio Rio. It has to be the cutest car on the street.
