Holds a ton
My girlfriend and I drove across the country with this litte kia stationwagon packed full of boxes, camping equipment, and even her pet hedgehog, in a travel carrier. It not only got us from the west to the east, but it did so with ease and comfort. I'd recommend buying one.

2009 Kia Rio

2009 KIA RIO
I HAD THE MISFORTUNE OF RENTING A RIO IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER. I FOUND IT TO BE VERY DRAFTY EVEN WITH THE HEAT ON FULL BLAST. I DIDN'T ENJOY THE RIDE ON THE HIGHWAY AND FOUND IT VERY LOUD. IM NOT A HUGE FAN OF THE INTERIOR OR THE EXTERIOR STYLING, BUT THERE WAS A FAIR AMOUNT OF CARGO SPACE AND PLENTY OF LEG ROOM FOR THE BACK SEAT PASSENGERS.

2000 Kia Rio

Great first car!
This was a great first car! Although it looks compact from the outside, it's actually quite spacey and plenty of room in the trunk. It's perfect for zipping around the city and also handles well on long haul journeys. I have no regrets purchasing my Kia Rio and the only reason I had to let it go was because I was moving to another country.
