The 2018 Kia Rio 5 is a great example of how to add value in the ultra competitive sub compact segment.
With standard heated front seats, heated steering wheel, a well appointed interior and a peppy 1.6L 4 cylinder engine giving out 130 horsepower and 119 lb-ft. of torque, even the entry level LX is impressive.
There's 928 L of cargo space with the rear seats down and yes, it comes in a manual gearbox, which is what we tested it with.
Starting at $14,995 MSRP, there's plenty of value to be had here.
Here's our review after spending a week in the 2018 Kia Rio 5 LX+
Enjoy the gallery below, which was taken during a week of snow in good ol' Mississauga, so you not only get car pictures but you also get pictures of the car with salt and dirt on it.
