alasta:KiwiNZ:I like the Outlander and the Holden Volt but ideally I would prefer not to use fossil fuels at all. The Toyota Prius C at $32,280 or the Honda Insight at $36,900 are not badly priced given the technology used.
Okay, that's actually cheaper than I thought.The Kia Rio whilst cheap is not a good drive at all, I had one for a couple of days for a test drive and it was horrible.
I have one and I don't really have a problem with it. As with most cars of that size it's underpowered, but the ride and handling seems fine as is the quality of the switchgear. I don't use it much, though, so maybe I just wouldn't notice the difference between a good car and a bad one.
I have to admit Kia pack a lot of kit into the Rio's for the price you pay and it actually staggers me that they can keep such a low price point for what they put in.
