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.

"I've had my Rondo for over a year now and I can't say enough about it. I average about 23 mpg and it handles beautifully. Four LARGE adults went on a 4 hour car ride and everyone was comfortable! The trunk space in unbelievable and the compartments for storage are great. The car handled very well on snow and ice and I didn't worry at all about driving in the winter. If you have two car seats in the back, there really isn't room for someone to sit inbetween, but who would want to? The people at the Kia dealership have been wonderful and I will definately be buying another Kia in the future."

"i have only had it a few weeks but it is by far the best kia in quality of materials etc. that i have owned. (and i have owned 4 counting this one!) in fact i still have a 2000 sephia with 104,000 miles on her and still running! the only drawback on this one is gas milage, i am averaging 22mpg city, not bad but would be happier if it were 25 or more. maybe it will do better after i break it in. so far it has just 1200 miles."
