This sibling of the Hyundai Accent is available as a sedan or hatchback. Power comes from a 138-hp, 1.6-liter four-cylinder mated to a six-speed automatic. Fuel economy of 29 mpg overall with our automatic-equipped hatchback and 30 mpg for the sedan is pretty unimpressive. Its stiff ride and noisy cabin are typical of the genre and can get annoying during long trips, but they aren't unbearable. Handling is a strong suit, with the car feeling responsive in corners. Higher-trim models offer amenities such as heated seats and a rearview camera, but they can push up the price steeply. Expect a redesigned Rio to arrive in spring 2017.
