The Kia Corp lineup is very large, and still growing with the addition of electric vehicles (EVs) and battery-electric vehicles (BEVs). Because of the large selection, it can be easy for consumers to forget the very affordable and classy subcompact car, the Kia Rio. Now in its 2022 model year, the Kia Rio continues to shine and receive awards. We touched on this shortly last week with all the current awards Kia Corp is winning for its lineup in 2022, the Kia Rio had its own win with the 2022 Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America™ Awards. We think the Rio deserves some more spotlight, and we’re glad to see it happening. Starting at $16,250 (plus destination fee), the Kia Rio keeps its value for years to come.

“The Kia Rio outperformed eight competitor trims to earn this first-time win for Best Fleet Value Subcompact Hatchback…The Rio demonstrated its strong fleet value by having both the lowest maintenance costs and the lowest repair costs in its class.” – David Wurster, Vincentric President

Every year, automotive journalists and publications review vehicles, have competitions, conduct studies, put together “Best of” lists, every way one can think of to test the quality of an automobile. A lot of awards shows and competitions take place in the spring, and this year, it’s like a wildfire. Every week, there seems to be another win for an automaker or model. This time, it’s Kia Corp, with three winnings reported in three days. The awards come from U.S. News & World Report for the Kia EV6, Vincentric for the Kia Rio, and the Hispanic Motor Press for the Kia Carnival MPV. We can already see the gold medals.

U.S. News & World Report recently put together its list of “Best Hybrid and Electric Cars”. Each electric vehicle (EV) that made the list was analyzed based on its overall score (according to U.S. News reviews), starting price, Level 2 charging rate, EPA fuel economy, and range estimates. The winners had the best combination of quality, value, and efficiency in their segment. With orders rising 49-percent in its second month in showrooms, a new Kia EV was definitely on the list, winning out over dozens of competitors. This earned the EV the title of Best Electric Vehicle, the Kia EV6.
