4. Refined Ride
One of the biggest complaints directed at the old Rondo had to do with its rough, harsh ride. Nowhere was this felt more than in the back seats. This, too is gone in the new generation. The ride is much smoother and sound insulation has been improved greatly. Hyundai and Kia products often suffer from a shimmying rear end over big bumps, but it seems the South Korean company tuned it here.
At 3,485 lbs. fully loaded, the Rondo is fairly light for a seven-passenger vehicle. This is evident on the road where its weight and a low center of gravity give it better handling than most three-row vehicles.
