2008 4dr Sedan 110-horsepower 1.6L I4
5-speed manual FWD
From a 17mpg average Chevy truck to NEVER getting less than 29mpg city, need I say more? Well okay, how about 37mpg on a freeway run. I have only got 13000 miles on the vehicle, and can imagine the fuel economy will improve still more. see full Kia Rio review
