2019 Kia Rio vs 2020 Toyota Yaris

2019 Kia Rio 5-Door Hatchback vs 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback

The term ‘economy car’ applies most prominently to compact models. Economy cars are small, which in turn offers drivers a very low and affordable price alongside high fuel efficiency. However, recently, the transformation of many compact economy models from sedans into hatchbacks has boosted their versatility by offering additional cargo space.

That brings us to our compact hatchbacks of the day. We have the 2019 Kia Rio 5-Door and the upcoming and revitalized 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback, formerly the Yaris iA. Despite the limitations of size, which model provides the most power, space, and affordable pricing? It’s the 2019 Kia 5-Door vs the 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback!
