Kia's new Rondo small crossover is the Korean automaker's latest model. The vehicle is available in two trim levels with a choice of two engines. The standard 2.4-liter four puts out 162 hp and 164 lb-ft of torque, while the optional 2.7-liter V6 puts out 182 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. The Rondo LX comes with a four-speed automatic, while the EX gets a five-speed.
The LX rides on 16-inch wheels, while the EX gets 17-inch alloys. The EX comes standard with integrated roof rails and chrome accents on the side moldings, door handles, and front grille crossbars. Both trims can be equipped with an available body kit that includes fender flares, front and rear fascias, side skirts, and a rear spoiler.
Although a third row of seats is optional, those seats are best left reserved for seven year olds. There is no way a full grown adult would be able to sit back there and enjoy any level of comfort.
