Cheap and cheerful is the Rio’s ambition and it does so with a style all its own. In both the sedan and the hatchback, a 130-hp 1.6-liter inline-four engine drives the front wheels through either a six-speed manual or automatic. The base LX trim is the definition of basic transportation, making do without power windows, Bluetooth connectivity, or cruise control. Goodies such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and automated emergency braking require stepping all the way up to the top-spec EX trim.
