If you're more concerned about saving money than having air conditioning in your car, then maybe the 2005 Kia Rio sedan is for you. The budget subcompact comes lightly equipped. Under its hood sits a 1.6-liter, 104-hp twin-cam I4 engine. A 5-speed manual is standard, but you can opt for a 4-speed automatic. Sitting on 14-inch wheels, the front-wheel drive Rio sedan features power disc brakes. ABS brakes are optional.
There is no power steering, no radio, no air conditioning. Intermittent wipers and a rear defrost are the only standard conveniences. You can get the air and a CD player as options, along with a Power Pack that adds power steering, power windows, and power locks. A body-colored rear spoiler, tachometer, and tilt steering wheel are other extras. At an estimated 26/33 mpg, the 2005 Rio is easy on your wallet. Since most buyers are looking for the Rio as a first-time commuter city car, they are generally pleased with its peppy engine and handling. The biggest constant complaint is the small backseat.

The 2005 Kia Rio Cinco is a 5-door wagon version of the sedan, packing more features, more cargo room, and greater versatility for those looking for more than just a commuter car. It has the same powertrain -- a 104-hp, 1.6-liter DOHC I4 with choice of standard 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Like the sedan, the 2005 Rio Cinco has dual front airbags, but no side impact bags. Disc brakes can be replaced by optional ABS.
What you get on the 2005 Rio Cinco that's not standard on the sedan are alloy versions of the 14-inch wheels, power windows, power steering, a CD player, a rear wiper, and overhead console, and split-folding rear seats. When down, the 24.3 cubic foot cargo area expands to 44 cubic feet. Like the sedan, however, air conditioning is optional, as is power locks, and a rear spoiler. Acceleration power is always an issue with the 2005 Rio Cinco, and highway revving can be noisy. But owners like the extra storage flexibility, the ample headroom, and the comfortable front seats.
