2014 Kia Rondo
by admin on May 20th, 2013
The Kia Rondo is a firm favorite that takes the MPV and makes it practical, interesting and a little fun.

It’s interesting when other journalists take out cars we deal with day to day as they invariably see things we don’t. It adds a different and valuable perspective to our own. This is what they h...
