Starting with the price, all that we can say is that Honda, due to its lean manufacturing processes on site is priced twice as high as the Kia. Particular if you want to get the Korean car, you will have to pay on average something around $13,000 to $17,700. Though the Toyota car will cost you $25,000 and the price can get up to $30,000. Though, looking at the engine we see where the money goes. The base model of Kia Rio5 comes with the 138-hp 1.6-liter I-4 regular gas engine inside. The Toyota car will have at the base model more volume and more ponies, particularly the 190-hp 2.4-liter I-4 regular gas engine. Both of the cars are equipped with 6-speed manual and automatic transmission systems, however for Honda you can also get the 5-speed gear. Even though losing on the power side, Kia is far further with the fuel economy. It can go 30 mpg in the city and 40 on the highway. While Honda has the numbers of just 20 mpg in city, and 30 on the highway.
