No, I would not recommend this
I purchased a Kia Rio 5 a few months ago, and I definitely have mixed feelings about this vehicle. I had initially purchased it for both the good fuel economy and the ease of maneuverability I had heard others rave about it. Although both of these features are definitely present in this car, there are a few outstanding flaws. There isn't much cargo space, and the backseat provides limited comfort. Being someone with a larger family, this was perhaps not the best choice I could have made. There are however, some other redeeming qualities of the Rio, however, such as a satalite radio and a decent engine. Design-wise, the exterior is quite understated yet modern, and , again, I cannot stress enough how well this car rides, or rather glides on a multitude of surfaces, however, I'm not sure how that makes up for the lackluster interior. Another qualm I have with this vehicle is the lack of safety, which upon reading about are less-than-impressive. This is a definite concern I have as a parent.
I would recommend it to single people, or those who want a compact, fuel efficient car without being overly luxurious. For those with larger families like me, however, this car is definitely not an ideal choice. I'm afraid for me, the smooth ride and sleek exterior are not enough to ultimately redeem the Kia.
