2012 Kia Rio SX Sedan Review: Pricing and Trim Levels
Assembled in Korea, the 2012 Kia Rio Sedan is available in three trim levels (LX, EX and SX) with a starting MSRP of $13,600. Step up to the sporty, top-of-the-line Rio SX Sedan, and you're looking at a base price of $17,500 which still isn't bad considering the aggressive appearance and the availability of more advanced features. Equipped with its only optional package, the 2012 Kia Rio SX Sedan used for this review had an as-tested price of $20,545 including destination. While this price is creeping into the range of most compacts and some mid-size sedans, the amount of content Kia crams in this new Rio might have some buyers doing a double take of the badge on the front grille.
