2014 Kia Rio vs. 2014 Chrysler 200 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chrysler 200 than the Kia Rio, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chrysler 200, the Kia Rio may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Chrysler 200 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Kia Rio, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Kia Rio is clearly a better financial choice over the Chrysler 200. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Kia Rio carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chrysler 200.

Dimensions
Since the Kia Rio is much slimmer than the Chrysler 200, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Kia Rio, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chrysler 200.

Drivetrain
The Kia Rio has much less torque than the Chrysler 200, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Kia Rio has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Chrysler 200, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Rio is significantly less powerful than the Chrysler 200. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Rio and the Chrysler 200. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Kia Rio as you will in the Chrysler 200.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Kia Rio than that of the Chrysler 200.
