Bluetooth connectivity is also available as an optional feature in the LX value package. In the 2010 Rio, all models had a standard manual transmission. In the 2011 Rio, manual transmission is only offered in the base model.
The exterior of the 2011 Rio looks great but it does not have the expensive design touches which are expected for a car that sells at such an inexpensive price. The new Rio has standard 14-inch wheels.
Standard features for the interior of the Rio are air conditioning, dual power sockets and audio system with four speakers. It also has power door locks and adjustable armrests for the rear seats. The sedan models also have an optional 60/40 split foldable rear seat.
Safety features include dual airbags for the front seats, side airbags, side curtain airbags and drum brakes. The base model has a fuel economy of 28 mpg for city and 34 mpg for highway.
Therefore, unless you're hell bent on buying the new Honda Civic, Accord, or Hyundai Sonata, the new Rio may just be the ideal package for you; that too at an extremely affordable price.
