Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Kia Rondo

Five-Point Inspection: 2014 Kia Rondo

5. If content is King, the Rondo steals the crown

What really makes the Rondo a great value though, is the content that can be stuffed into the vehicle. Pricing starts at $21,695 CAD, but our fully-loaded Rondo topped out at $32,195 CAD and included features like push button start, panoramic glass roof, navigation, a heated and cooled driver’s seat, heated rear seats, HID headlights, rear camera, rain sensing wipers, heated steering wheel, window shades and much more. The materials used throughout the Rondo have a higher-quality feel than the previous generation.

Interested in buying a Rondo now? Well that’s too bad, but you can peruse other Kia products in the AutoGuide new cars section. There, you can read full specifications, read about pricing and compare vehicles side-by-side.

    Or just fly to Canada and come back with one! No one would ask any questions, I’m sure..

    Coincidentally; i helped drive someone’s Kia Rondo to Atlantic City for Miss America Pageant weekend last month (somehow managed to get a 51st floor room in the Resorts Tower)

    It was a 2.4/auto and one of the last new 2010’s in the country.

    I really have nothing negative to say about it whatsoever, except perhaps fuel economy and power not so good from 75-95MPH. But for its intended purpose; it did its job.

    Several years back, I drove the previous Ronda as a rental in San Diego for a week. This was a V6 model and I was very impressed, except for the fuel economy. Technologies have changed much since then, and I think Kia is missing out if this new Ronda isn’t available in the US.

    Hey, maybe if Kia brought it to the US, it would convince Mazda to keep the 5!

  • Mike

    Most other reviews complain that the ride and handling are still below par. Autoguide don’t seem to agree with this sentiment.

    No sliding side doors, no care… even if it does look pretty good.
