The 2010 Kia 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. The Rondo can seat up to seven passengers and there is a choice of a four-cylinder engine or a small V6 to supply the van with the necessary power. New for 2010, a two person third-row seat is now standard on all trim levels.
Also coming standard are turn-signal indicators in the side mirrors and an EcoMinder indicator that rewards efficient driving by turning green. The Rondo has a two tier grille, large headlights and openings on each side of the bumper. The interior features rounded dashboard panels and air vents, and the gauges and center controls have orange illumination. We said that the Rondo was breaking all the traditional trends.
