The Kia Rondo isn't an SUV and it isn't quite a people-mover, either. Regardless of segment, though, it's a versatile, clever, value-for-money way to move the family in style.
The 2008 Kia Rondo is a tall wagon that fits into Kia's lineup somewhere between the Sportage small SUV, Sedona minivan, and Optima sedan. It was first introduced to the U.S. market for 2007 and carries into 2008 unchanged. The Rondo LX base model comes with standard power accessories, then the LX adds air conditioning and a roof rack, among other features. The top-of-the-range EX brings a long list of upgrades, including 17-inch wheels, fog lamps, upgraded upholstery, keyless entry, an upgraded sound system, and most notably, third-row seating that expands the Rondo's capacity to seven.
