Kia Rio

For Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Cranberry car shoppers looking for a subcompact car, you should take the time to check out the Kia Rio that BAIERL Automotive carries. With the availability in both the regular Rio and the Rio 5-Door versions, you have many different choices. Add to that the fact that these come with attractive price tags, and you definitely will be happy when you do take a good look at this Kia offering. 

A Powerful Choice in the Subcompact Vehicle Segment

Despite the fact that the 2016 Kia Rio and Kia Rio 5-Door have really attractive prices, this does not necessarily mean they lack something that makes them a great choice. In fact, both body styles make it to the list of the best subcompact vehicles out in the market today. In fact, as soon as you see one, hop in it, and give it a test drive, you will not think that you are maneuvering one of the less-pricey subcompacts available today. And with its bold exterior design, as well as its pleasant-looking and well-laid-out interiors, what you have is a powerful choice in the subcompact car segment.

The Muscle behind the 2016 Rio

Both the Rio and the Rio 5-Door body styles operate on a 1.6L, gasoline direct-injection, 4-cylinder powertrain. This machine can generate up to 138 horses and has a torque rating of 123 pound-feet. With this muscle, you can rest assure that your ride will run and perform exceptionally and willingly.

Three Trims to Suit Anyone’s Needs

Whichever of the two body styles you choose from, you have three options when it comes to trim levels. There is the base LX trim, followed by the mid-level EX trim, and finally, the top of the line SX trim. The LX is the only trim that allows you to choose between a manual and an automatic transmission (six-speed).

A Shower of Standard Features on the Base Level

Even when you just opt for the entry-level LX, you will already enjoy a shower of standard features including heated power, covered 15” steel wheels, rear wiper/washer, heated power side mirrors, rear defroster, satellite radio, USB/auxiliary input, AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo system, 60/40-split folding rear seat, good quality cloth upholstery, tilt steering column air conditioning, and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.

What You Get When you Step Up to the 2016 Rio EX

The Rio EX, which comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission, obviously has more features compared with the entry-level. You will find most of the equipment on the LX here, plus several other standard features, including cruise control, power equipment (windows and locks), keyless remote entry, premium cloth upholstery, Bluetooth connectivity, A-pillar-mounted tweeters, and a tilt-and-telescope steering wheel.

For a Sportier Ride, Go with the Rio SX

When you want something sportier, you should definitely consider the 2016 Kia Rio SX. Aside from many of the standards found on the lower level trims, you also get the following as standards: 17” alloy wheels, sport-tuned suspension, power-folding side mirrors (complete with turn-signal indicators), ventilated front disc brakes, UVO infotainment system, automatic on/off headlights, paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel, rear backup camera, LED taillights, soft-touch dash pad, and fog lights.

The Awesome Standard Safety Elements on All Trims

Whichever of the Kia Rio trims you opt for, you can expect it to have the following safety elements as standards: front airbags, front side-impact airbags, front side-curtain airbags, rear side-curtain airbags, electronic traction control, electronic vehicle stability control, and 4-wheel anti-lock braking system.

Choosing between the Traditional Rio and the 5-Door Hatchback

It all depends on your personal preference and your requirements, so it is extremely important you take a much closer look at both the traditional sedan and the five-door hatchback body styles. This way, you can determine which of the two best suits your tastes and needs.

Now, the 2.4L, 4-cylinder engine has the power to spout up to 185 horses, paired with the fuel-economic continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Honda engineers took the same CVT transmission system from the Accord, and equipped it in the CR-V.

In addition, the sound system also received upgrades, allowing you to have a better, much more enjoyable entertainment system. Also equipped with Honda’s proprietary LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system, 7” center console touchscreen display, and backup camera guidelines, and you can see the difference between this trim and the entry-level one. 

Even More Standard Features with the EX-L 

When you go for the higher-grade EX-L trim, you will have your Honda CR-V equipped with almost all the standards found in the two lower-tier trims, plus leather upholstery, dual zone automatic climate control, and even a satellite radio. You can also get the optional navigation system.

The Best in the Line-Up: The Touring

The Touring trim, the best in the line-up, and also a new for this model year, comes with a lot of standards found in the three lower-tier trims plus 18” wheels, power tailgate, navigation system, driver’s seat memory, adaptive cruise control, HD radio, as well as the warning systems: forward-collision and lane-departure.

The Outstanding List of Standard Safety Components on All Trims

Whichever of the Honda CR-V trims you choose, you will get to enjoy an outstanding list of standard equipment, even when you just opt for the entry level trim.

Honda Civic Sedan

The Honda Civic line-up has a rich and spectacular history, being one of the most popular sedans (and coupes in newer model years) in this segment. And with the 2015 Honda Civic model having undergone several great improvements, updates, and changes, there is no wonder why many Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Cranberry car shoppers head to BAIERL Automotive to make a purchase of one of the many trim levels this Civic model year has to offer.

The Whopping Eight Different Trim Levels to Choose From

You read it right: Honda offers the Civic in eight different trim levels, starting with the base LX, followed by the HF, the EX, the EX-L, the SE, the Civic Si, the Civic Hybrid, and lastly, the Civic Natural Gas.

The Feature-Rich Base Level Trim

Even when you go for only the base level LX trim, you can expect an impressive list of standard equipment and technologies in it. Whether you choose the sedan or the coupe, you will have a 5” display screen on the center console, air conditioning, rearview camera, power equipment (windows, locks, and mirrors), auxiliary plug, Pandora Internet Radio, CD-player, Bluetooth, and iPod interface.

Stepping Up the Game with the HF Trim

Get the next level trim HF, and you will take home a sedan specifically designed to maximize fuel efficiency and economy. It also comes with low rolling-resistance tires, aerodynamic wheels, rear spoiler, and underbody panels.

The SE: A New-for-this-Year Trim

For the model year 2015, Ford decided to launch a new trim option, and it comes in the form of the SE. This sedan-only trim comes standard with the continuously variable transmission (CVT) automatic system, together with 15” alloy wheels, 7” touchscreen display, push-button start, keyless access, automatic climate control, and Honda's proprietary LaneWatch blind spot monitoring system.

The EX Trim for the Coupe Lovers

Unlike the base and the HF trim, Ford makes the EX trim available in both the sedan and the coupe versions. Take this home with you, and you get a ride equipped with a power sunroof, 16” alloy wheels, variable intermittent wipers, HondaLink smartphone integration, and a 60/40-split folding rear seatback among several other standard equipment.

The Premium Level EX-L Trim

Opt for the top tier trim EX-L, and you will have a sedan/coupe equipped with most of the amenities and technologies in the lower level trims plus more. This top-of-the-level trim also sports bigger alloy wheels, fog lights, power driver’s seats, luxurious and ultra-comfortable leather upholstery, as well as heated front seats.

The Civic Si: Made for Those Who Want a Sporty Sedan or Coupe

When you want a Civic that delivers a much sportier feel and vibe both in terms of driving and handling, you should go for the Civic Si. Like the EX-L trim, you can also choose between a sedan and a coupe body style. The Si comes with a more powerful engine, in the form of a 4-cylinder powertrain. Also standard in this trim are sport suspension, limited-slip differential, and fog lights. You will also find most of the equipment in the EX trim here.

The Hybrid and the Natural Gas: For Fuel-Economic Conscious Motorists

Honda engineers created the Honda Civic Hybrid and the Natural Gas trims specifically for motorists who need an enjoyable, comfortable, yet extremely fuel-economic vehicle. The Civic Hybrid's standard equipment follows most of those in the set list of the EX trim, but you can also get optional features from the EX-L trim. Standard equipment for the Hybrid includes forward collision warning and departure warning systems. As for the Civic Natural Gas, the standards include all those you will find in the LX trim.

The Quite-a-Long List of Standard Safety Components of the Civic
