2016 Kia Rondo
Posted on November 5, 2015
The 2016 Kia Rondo is a people hauler that can also manage
cargo and pretty much anything else you need to carry from one place to
another. It’s a 7-seater that looks more like a car than an MPV. With
unrivalled quality, proven reliability and lots of practicality, there is every
reason to consider the Rondo.
2016 Kia Rondo design
The 2016 Kia Rondo is sleek. It’s the only word for it. From
the angled nose, up the short hood, up the raked windshield and down the sloped
roof to the tailpipes, the design just draws the eye in one uninterrupted line
from end to end. The side panels have interesting features too, but it is that
fluid profile that draws the eye.
Inside, space is the only thing that isn’t premium. The
cabin is now better than ever with quality materials, good layout, nice
dashboard, lots of technology and plenty of storage options.
Engine and transmission
There is a single engine option for the 2016 Kia Rondo. It
is a 2.0-litre GDI four cylinder that produces 164 hp and 156 lb-ft of torque.
It is mated to a six speed transmission available as either manual or automatic
that sends power to the front wheels.
The Kia 2.0-litre engine is a good one. It has enough power
to cope comfortably with full seats or a rear full of family cargo. It is as
comfortable in the city as it is on the highway and shows its pedigree from the
moment you turn the key.
2016 Kia Rondo trims
There are four trim levels for the 2016 Kia Rondo. There is
LX MT, LX Value AT, EX AT and EX Luxury. The Rondo LX MT has 16 inch wheels,
heated side mirrors, cruise control, body coloured exterior trim, spoiler, air

standard, heated second row seats and air cooled driver’s seat.
The 2016 Kia Rondo is a practical, flexible carrier of
people and cargo. It offers a smooth drive with great looks and handling. With
lots of options and technology across the board at a very competitive price,
the Kia Rondo is a definite contender in the family hauler market.
