#15 of 24 2012 Kia Rio 5-door HB
Jan 08, 2012 (4:47 pm)
Could use some assistance if anyone has it.... Really enjoyed driving the rio over most competitors to be honest... just dont want to show all my cards at the dealership for a new ride. So I'm looking at the EX ($16,500.) with a few options.... including the Convenience Package $1k. I've been quoated $18,580.... Haven't read too many new price quoates / leasing feedback or conversation so I thought I'd throw it out there.

Actually, this thread has about 16 posts since 2006. So not much traffic. The hyundai elantra is car of the year, a bigger vehicle and similarly equipped to the rio may be slightly less. leases may be comparable if similar terms.

#20 of 24 2013 Kia Rio HB Bought
Jul 22, 2012 (6:16 pm)
Not much activity on this forum so I thought I would post my purchase info and experience. Yesterday I bought a 2013 Kia Rio Hatchback EX. Only option was carpeted floor mats. MSRP was $17545. Sale price was $16255 w/Destination but excluding Tax, License and Title. We bought it at AllStar Kia in San Bernardino CA.
The buying process was very painless. I went to the Kia.com website and used the Search Dealer inventory link. I found the car with the exact options I wanted and clicked Request a Quote. The quote was provided via email within a few hours on the VIN# of the car I already checked out on Kia.com.
The price was much better than what other dealers were quoting me over the phone. When I arrived the price never changed from the quote and there were no bait and switch tactics used.
I asked them if it came with the $500 Kia Financing rebate. They said they could do it but the rate would go up 1%. It was basically a wash. Many other dealers had touted the $500 rebate. However, none of them mentioned that it came at the expense of a point on the financing deal. I checked the Kia website and there is no manufacturer's $500 "financing rebate" on this model. It is a dealership incentive (which really isn't much of an incentive).
Cute car and nicely appointed for this class. Good luck shopping!

I'm looking at a 2013 EX trim. I see your subject title says "lease" or did you purchase? When you say "fully loaded" is that inclusive of the rear assist camera; Do you have leather or premium cloth interior? If you got leather WITH the rear assist you got a great deal!! Was there a financing rebate offer or dealer incentive? 17,000 including TT&Fees?! How'd you get that deal, if you don't mind me asking? Thanks for taking time to reply! I live in Atlanta.
#22 of 24 LX lease
Jul 25, 2013 (4:23 pm)
On June 24 I leased a 2013 LX hatchback with AT and convenience package and carpeted mats for $170/month, 36 months, with only the first months payment up front. That included the competitive rebate but not the military rebate (dealer was offering the car in an ad for $159/month with the military rebate and competitive rebate, but w/o mats). I thought this was a good deal especially since the Hyundai dealer down the road was offering a comparably-equipped Accent for $169/month but $1899 up front.
The car is red with tan/black interior. I think it's very sharp in that combination. I have nearly 800 miles on the car now and love it so far.

I have driven a few of these at work and they are pretty sweet small vehicles and prefer this over the current Accent model, it just looks fresher and handles a bit better. The wife is leaning towards the Hyundai and I am for the Kia but it will be her ride so she gets to choose it. Also, the Hyundai store is ridiculously close to the house while the Kia is a drive and over by the Honda dealer across town. They had a red over black hatch with the nice alloys in the showroom awhile back which was stunning...it really drew one's eye's to it! At this point in time if I had to purchase for me, it would be a Kia/Hyundai product hands down!..They seem to be like the old Honda and Toyota used to be like when they really were producing awesome products...guess it's the Koreans turn to pick up where the Japanese left off!
Congrats on your new sled...enjoy!!!
