These days, it sometimes feels like crossovers are taking over. Manufacturers are churning out more and more variations of machines that fall somewhere between sedan and SUV. We have to admit, we enjoy the elevated ride height and extra space that crossovers bring to the table.

But that’s not the type of vehicle for everyone. What happened to valuing great gas mileage, seamless ride comfort, and sporty drives, all for a lower price tag? Sedans are still here, and with models like the 2019 Kia Rio, they’re getting better every year. As Kia says fondly of its modest subcompact, “Small can do big things.”

The 2019 Kia Rio is part of an all-new generation that was introduced for 2018. The upgrades and refinements that Kia showered upon it brought the Rio into a place of its own as a sophisticated, stylish subcompact. The interior is high-tech, and the outside is sculpted to a sleek sheen. Responsive handling combined with the powerful yet efficient engine make it a guilt-free blast to drive. Despite all this, the price remains economical with a starting MSRP of just $15,390.
