If you are looking for a compact sedan that goes above and beyond the standard, you’ll end up doing hours of research in order to find exactly what you are looking for. Here at Prestige Ford, however, we have compiled a matchup between the Fiesta and Rio to help you along this process. After going through this comparison, you’ll soon find out that the Ford Fiesta wipes out its competition, leaving the Rio in its dust. Continue reading to find out just how the Fiesta does it!
Like you would expect from any Ford vehicle, the Fiesta offers a wide range of powertrain options for you to choose form, whereas you’ll only find one option in the Kia Rio. Starting with the standard engines, the Rio’s 1.6L I-4 powerhouse is no match for the Fiesta’s 1.6L 4-cylinder powertrain when it comes to efficiency. The Fiesta is able to work out a 37 MPG hwy1 rating, so you can stay away from the pump as long as possible. On the other hand, you’ll find yourself filling up on gas more often when you drive the 2017 Rio, as it only provides a fuel economy of 36 MPG hwy2. Also, if you want to take your drive to the next level in the Fiesta, opt for its 1.6L 4-cylinder turbocharged EcoBoost® engine that blows you away with its 197 horsepower3 and 202 lb.-ft. of torque3. The Kia Rio certainly isn’t able to achieve these high numbers with its 138 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque.
Once you’re inside the Ford Fiesta, you’ll notice a suite of the latest systems, making it a step ahead in this matchup in Garland. The standard SYNC®4 multimedia system organizes your cabin controls for you in the Fiesta, and connects you to your favorite applications. Disappointingly, you’ll have to upgrade your trim level to get access to Kia’s infotainment system when you drive the Rio. You’ll find unique sport seats with an embossed design in the second trim level of the 2017 Fiesta, which provides you with optimal comfort. On the other hand, you won’t even see this luxury available in the Kia Rio.
Appearance-wise, both vehicles are stylish in their own ways, but you’ll see more unique and eye-catching elements on the Fiesta. First off, the chrome upper grille bars and surround and a carbon black lower grille is a standard feature on the Fiesta, whereas the most the Rio offers is a black mesh version. Illuminating the path ahead are the twin-chamber Quadbeam halogen headlamps with black bezel and chrome highlights, which are functional and appealing to the eyes. The best that the Kia Rio can do is offer basic halogen headlights on its base trim.
When it comes down to the details, the Fiesta proves to be the winning champion in this 2017 Ford Fiesta vs 2017 Kia Rio in Garland, TX, comparison. You are just one visit away from making the Fiesta your very own, so visit Prestige Ford at our convenient location today, 3601 S. Shiloh Rd. in Garland, TX.
