    Kia Rio 2018's interior looks astounding. Is it the BEST in class, in US/Cd?

    i'm just amazed at their new interior design. specially their dash + steering wheel + their gear selector + seats .

    also, heated seats is standard. DAMN. i mean, heated steering wheel would be great too, but hey , this is still amazing progress.

    i love the fact that i'm alive in this time period. if you care about value for your buck, and you're a cheapskate subcompact lover like me, there is arguably no better time in recent memory*.

    *altho Europeans get much greater options.

    Decidedly not basic looking.

    I've been reading up on this car lately and it's very impressive.
    I do believe it does come with heated steering wheel. 130hp! On all the trim levels.
    I really like the new design. What annoys me is that the base model Rio is better equipped than the top of the Micra SR and cheaper.

    I know what my next car will be. The 2018 Hyundai accent is also close consideration. They are practically the same car anyway.

    A friend of mine just test drove a bunch entry level cars: Yaris, Fit, Micra. Her favourite was the Micra... until she tried the new Rio.

    No heated steering wheel on the base model, but the base does get heated seats.

    The refinement of the Rio is noticeably better than the other cars. In terms of NVH it feels in a different class.
