What Makes the 2018 Kia Rio Better than the 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4?

When you look at our photo that features the two subcompact sedans, what do you notice? If you said that there is a major difference between the rear passenger door windows, you are correct. The 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 model's windows are smaller and slanted, while the windows for the 2018 Kia Rio are larger and have a straighter position. There are a few advantages to having the larger and straighter windows on the 2018 Kia Rio. One is that the larger windows help the 2018 Kia Rio look more proportionally balanced and stylish. The larger windows also give your backseat passengers better exterior visibility – which is imperative if you are driving through the Gettysburg Battlefield or a local park decorated with holiday lights. Additionally, you will enjoy better rear visibility with the larger windows when parallel parking and switching lanes – which means better safety! 

Besides the larger rear passenger windows, the 2018 Kia Rio offers excellent engine performance that will help you reach your desired speed quickly while remaining as efficient as possible. 2018 Kia Rio models outfitted with the 6-speed automatic transmission can attain an estimated fuel economy of 28 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway.
