For 2009, both the four- and six-cylinder engines see a modest bump in horsepower, and the base LX trim now features air conditioning as part of its standard equipment list. Last year's Leather Package, which includes leather seating surfaces and heated front seats, is now standard on EX trims.

About Kia Rondo

The 2009 Kia Rondo boldly strides into the burgeoning crossover segment with little concern for the fierce competition it faces. Affordable, flexible and offering both four- and six-cylinder power, plus room for five or seven passengers, this user-friendly front-wheel-drive hauler displays the kinds of features and options – including standard stability control, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and the industry's longest and most comprehensive warranty package – that have come to characterize most of Kia's current-generation products. While the Rondo's closest direct competitor would be the slightly smaller Mazda MAZDA5, its cross-shopping potential encompasses everything from a Chrysler PT Cruiser, Chevrolet HHR or Dodge Caliber to front-wheel-drive versions of smaller SUVs like the Honda CR-V, Saturn VUE and Toyota RAV4.

"hi I have 4 children and was looking for something different other than a caravan( which I have owned) I was looking at the ford escape hybrids but they don't offer them with a 3rd seat. so wanting to have better gas millage and still have room for all the kids and my wife and me, I looked at the rondo. I test drove one and it really impurest me. I also liked the warranty 10years 100'000 power train warranty.( to the first owner only I don't like that) but we plan on keeping it. I can't begin to tell you how much my wife and I like the rondo we have had it for about 6 months now. I plan on putting in a navigation system in the dash. the turning radius is unbelievable you can turn on a dime. and It does not feel top heavy like the mini vans or the suv's"

"We purchased our Rondo in November of 2007 after our old minivan failed us. We didn't want another van, and were looking toward the small SUV class. We have 3 young children ages 3, 6, and 7, and didn't want to cram them into a vehicle, so a third row was a necessity for us. We drove the RAV4, CR-V, and Ford Escape and felt very cramped. Only the RAV4 offered the 3rd row, but it was tight, and no cargo could be carried. We looked at the outside of the Mazda 5, but sliding doors reminded me too much of a mini van. Our next stop was Kia to look at the Sportage, but the Rondo caught my eye on the showroom. 3rd row, sliding second row seats, normal doors, V6, side curtain airbags, and more. It fit all our criteria. The warenty was also very attractive....10 years!! We used to run around town in my husband's bigger SUV, but now we find we use the Rondo for most of our trips around town. The gas milage is good at an average over 20mpg (this is our personal calculations), and the V6 is well worth the extra money. If I had it to do all over again, the only thing I would have changed is I would have gotten the EX model for the Radio and 6 disk changer, but at the time we were watching our wallets."

"I love this vehicle! I had never even heard of a Rondo before I bought one. I was at the dealership trying out the Sportage, but I didn't like the sport-utility suspension, so I tried the less expensive Rondo. Don't like the looks of the car so much, but I love everything else! It's very affordable, gets very good mileage (especially on long freeway trips) and the V6 engine gives it lots of pickup. The seats are very comfortable and the split folding seats are handy. The cargo area with the seats folded down is just long enough for me to sleep back there comfortably on a camping trip or a long road trip. There are lots of little great amenities in this car, too, like the smaller foldup section at the rear end of the car. It's great for putting grocery bags in there so they don't tip over or slide around the car. Then the larger compartment is great for storing stuff you don't use much, but need to have. I would, and have, recommended this vehicle to my friends and family. It's a great car to drive around town, but because of the cargo area, it's also good for trips to Home Depot and longer trips."
