Bradley and Peotone drivers deserve sedans that are economically priced, but still deliver in terms of features, elegance, and power. The 2015 Ford Fiesta and the 2015 Kia Rio are two such vehicles, but how do you know which is right for you? Read on for our comparison.
One of the advantages of the 2015 Ford Fiesta’s large range of trim options — seven to the 2015 Kia Rio’s three — is that you can get the right engine for your needs. The 2015 Rio offers no choice in the engine department, providing a 1.6L engine that produces 138 hp across all models.
The Fiesta offers two choices: the standard 1.6L I-4 engine or the1.0L EcoBoost three-cylinder. The standard engine is perfect for anyone who doesn’t require a vehicle with too much power, but the EcoBoost alternative can provide up to 123 hp and 125 lb.-ft. of torque. No surprise that the 1.0L EcoBoost was named the 2014 International Engine of the Year.
The Fiesta has always been known as a car that manages to be affordable while offering a wealth of interior features, and the 2015 model is no exception. Despite having a slightly lower price tag, the 2015 Fiesta packs in far more available features than the 2015 Kia Rio.
For example, both models allow hands-free calling, but the Fiesta has taken the technology even further. The SYNC AppLink connects the cutting-edge SYNC system to mobile applications, giving drivers the ability to control a selection of apps through SYNC voice commands or via steering wheel-mounted controls.

Great looks don’t have a huge impact on the ride or efficiency of a car, but, let’s face it: they sure are nice to have. Ford has never cut back on exterior styling, so the 2015 Fiesta is just as gracefully designed as you’d expect.
Smooth, dynamic lines and a generous front grille give the car a flowing, regal air, which perfectly complements the opulent interior. In contrast, the body of the 2015 Kia Rio looks like an economized option — the design is plain, unimaginative, and uninspiring.
Treat yourself to the beautiful, versatile, and technologically innovate vehicle that you deserve: the 2015 Ford Fiesta. There’s one in our showroom with your name on it, so come down to Terry’s Ford of Peotone today. We’re just a short drive from Bradley, and we hope to see you soon!
