2009 Kia Rondo 3.4 14
$ 2,948-10,440
December 30, 2008
Vehicle Overview
Breaking with segment trends, the Rondo is much smaller than most other vehicles with three rows of seats. It slots below Kia's larger Sedona and competes with the other mini-minivan on the market, the Mazda5.

With the optional third-row bench, the Rondo can seat seven. The Rondo is available in base, LX or top-of-the-line EX trim levels. The LX and EX trims come with a choice of a four-cylinder engine or a small V-6.

New for 2009
The 2009 Kia Rondo gets a standard Sirius Satellite Radio with three months of free service and an available GPS navigation system.

The Rondo has a two-tier grille, large headlights and openings on each side of the bumper that can house optional fog lights. An accessory body kit includes fender flares and ground effects for visual flare.

At 179 inches long and 71.7 inches wide, the Rondo is slightly shorter and wider than the Mazda5.
  • Available 16- or 17-inch wheels
  • Standard power mirrors
  • Standard automatic headlamps
  • Standard roof rails (LX and EX)
  • Optional sports body kit
  • Chrome door handles and side moldings (EX)
  • Power sunroof (optional on EX)
  • Fog lamps (EX)

The Rondo has two standard rows of seats that can accommodate five people. A third row can fit two more, though larger passengers won't want to climb back there.

The Rondo's interior features rounded dashboard panels and air vents. The gauges and center controls have an orange illumination. The Rondo has some innovative storage solutions, including a dashboard shelf atop the glove compartment.

The second- and third-row seats fold nearly flat; a Rondo without the third row offers several partitioned compartments under the load floor. There's a maximum 155.9 cubic feet of passenger space with the optional third row. With all three rows up, the Rondo's cargo space is a cramped 6.5 cubic feet. Still, the Rondo beats out the Mazda5 for both passenger and cargo space.

Under the Hood
