Kia is quietly gaining a reputation for producing top-of-the-line subcompact cars. The latest accolades for the automaker came when FAMA Magazine named the 2012 Kia RIO 5 door hatchback as the “subcompact car of the year” in its Mujeres Al Volante awards section. The 2012 RIO is currently available to purchase at Simi Valley Kia.
It is a great honor for Kia to receive such an award. FAMA is a leading lifestyle magazine for Hispanic women. The award was given to the 2012 Kia RIO 5 door hatchback for a multitude of reasons. The magazine recognized the great safety features, fuel economy, amenities and design offered to consumers by this Kia model.
Eco-friendly features are another reason the 2012 Kia RIO 5 door hatchback gets such high marks. 85 percent of the materials used in its construction can be recycled for use in other cars. It is equipped with ISG technology that conserves fuel when a car is idling. The 2012 RIO also leads subcompact cars in fuel economy. It can travel 30 miles per gallon in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. It is efficient without sacrificing any power. The 2012 RIO boasts 138 horsepower — which is far better than any other subcompact car on the market.
