Don’t add water to the windshield washer reservoir. It won’t clean as well as washer fluid, and it may freeze in cold weather and damage the system.
The award-winning Kia Rio has been honored once again, this time as one of the “Six Best New Cars for your Teenager” by Vroomgirls.com – the first comprehensive automotive website created by and for women. The site hailed the Rio for its modern styling, high fuel economy and exceptional overall value. Also highlighted was the subcompact’s abundance of standard amenities, including USB connectivity and steering-wheel controls, while Rio’s impressive warranty and available navigation system received nods as well.
“Rio being recognized as one of the ‘Six Best New Cars for your Teenager’ by Vroomgirls.com further validates all of the virtues which have made it popular with both parents and young drivers,” said Michael Sprague, vice president, marketing & communications, Kia Motors America (KMA). “Excelling in design, fuel economy, value and driving enjoyment makes the Rio a truly well-rounded choice in the competitive subcompact segment.”
Editors from Vroomgirls.com evaluated vehicles based on several main parental-focused criteria, including safety, reliability and value, but also considered factors important to teenage drivers such as user-content, fun-to-drive character and styling. Vroomgirls.com selected the vehicles that offer the best combination of these characteristics.
“Parents want a safe, reliable car for their kids, but teens only care about what’s cool,” said Tara Weingarten, Vroomgirls.com editor-in-chief. “The 2012 Kia Rio checks both of those boxes.”
