What 16 year old with a brand new license doesn't imagine hitting the road in his dream car with all the works? And what parent of a 16 year old with a brand new license doesn't dread that same fantasy? With the Kia Rio, both the parent and the child can feel happy with that teenager behind the wheel.
According to Vroomgirls.com, the premier automotive website for and by women, the Kia Rio has been dubbed one of the "Six Best New Cars For Your Teenager." The combination of safety features, excellent fuel economy, and affordable pricing with a stylish exterior, USB connectivity, and easy-to-use dashboard makes for a car that appeals to both the parent and the teenager.
"Parents want a safe, reliable car for their kids, but teens only care about what's cool," said Tara Weingarten, Vroomgirls.com Editor-in-Chief. "The 2012 Kia Rio checks both of those boxes."
The Rio comes as both a 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback. Both models offer the kind of amenities everyone can appreciate, no matter what your age. The estimated 30 MPG city and 40 MPG highway means the Rio is the most-fuel efficient car of the six listed. A USB-compatible stereo with steering-wheel controls allows teens to listen to their music without taking their eyes off the road. The Rio also has either a 5 year/60,000 mile warranty for the whole car, or a 10 year/100,000 mile warranty on the engine, transmission and driveline. Any way you look at it, this car gives you a great deal, no matter if you're 16 or 46.
