Cargo

The Kia Rio only offers 11.9 cubic feet of cargo space, which is unimpressive for the class. However, if you opt for the upper trims, you’ll get 60/40 split-folding rear seats, which increase cargo capacity. Kia does not specify the cargo capacity with the rear seats folded, but it should provide enough space to tote several large suitcases, a cooler and other road trip necessities.

If you select an upper trim of the Rio, you’re going to pay $14,995, which is pricey for what you get when you compare it to the competition. The Ford Fiesta sedan starts at $13,320 and offers 12.8 cubic feet, and the Kia Forte starts at $13,695 and has 14.7 cubic feet of trunk space.

The Rio5, a five-door hatchback, is also available. It starts at $15,095 and offers 15.8 cubic feet with the rear seats up and 49.6 cubic feet with the seats down.
