Comparison Review

Comfort
The Kia Rio offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Yaris with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Yaris, the Kia Rio may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Kia Rio as you will with the Toyota Yaris, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Kia Rio will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Yaris. 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 and the Toyota Yaris have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Kia Rio is a little wider than the Toyota Yaris, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Kia Rio takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Yaris.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Kia Rio transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Yaris.

Handling
The Kia Rio has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Yaris, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Kia Rio is somewhat more powerful than the Toyota Yaris.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Kia Rio and the Toyota Yaris.

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