2017 Ford Fiesta vs Kia Rio: Being Fun No Longer Enough

By  | 

Both the Ford Fiesta and the Kia Rio are models that were made to be fun but fun alone won’t carry them to the top. Which of the two do you think deserves to be on the top?

The Kia Rio will be powered by a 1.6 liter four cylinder engine that will be mated to a six-speed manual or auto transmission. The engine will be offering about 138hp. The Kia Rio will come with standard features like satellite radio, A/C and more. The top of the range SX model will get a few additional features like heated leather seats, sunroof, sports suspension, 17inch alloy wheels and more.

The Ford Fiesta, on the other hand, will come running on a 123hp turbo three-cylinder engine. The Fiesta will return about 27mpg in the city and 29mpg on the highway. It will only need 8.7 seconds to go from 0-60mph and has a top speed of 115mph. The base model will come with seven airbags, USB, 12 volts outlet, tilting and telescoping steering and more. The top of the range model will come with an upgraded exterior and additional features like the cold-weather package.

If you were asked to pick between the two, which one will you pick?
