*No monetary compensation was made for this post. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. I was allowed to test drive this car for a week to facilitate my review.


When I received word I wold review a 5 Door car I immediately thought of my brother and his little Ford Focus. I was worried. I was a mom to 3 kids and a 5 door car is not what I had in mind.

Luckily the Kia Rio pulled into the drive and a I let out a huge sigh of relief. It was not the scary thing I had built up in my mind.


It was a gorgeous little car and I knew it was going to be a lot of fun to drive!

The Kia Rio has a Active Eco-System engine, giving you the best gas mileage possible. It hits 28mpg in the city and 36mpg on the highway! GREAT gas mileage in this car!

You would think a little car like this would be lacking on the safety features, but not the Kia Rio. We are talking Dual front advanced airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, full length side curtain airbags, 3 point seatbelts for all seating positions, Antilock brake system, traction control system and MORE! I never felt that this car was unsafe while driving it!

This great car is also equipped with Siruis Satellite radio, navigation system, push button start, heated front seats, Bluetooth wireless technology, remote keyless entry, Rear camera, and a moon roof! Another favorite of the kiddos!

This car was only able to hold one kiddos sports gear unfortunately but lucky for us the week we had the car, we only had softball on the agenda. It was a great little car to get us to the tournament and save us money in the gas department as well!

I think this car is the perfect starter car for the teen in your life! It is fun to drive, great safety features¬† great “fun” features, and its at an amazing price!


I highly recommend you check out the Kia Rio 5-Door SX when looking for your teen a new car or perhaps all your kids are out of the house and you are downsizing!
