30 mpg city/40 mpg highway (estimated)
Kia is almost rid of every dated, pre-German-designed car in its lineup. The subcompact Rio finally gets the edgy treatment were coming to expect of modern Kias, and is expected to hit the magic 40-mpg highway number. The hatch comes out this fall and the sedan will debut in January. We dont know any other details, other than its going to be a very good value.
