Beautifully practical.

The Kia Rondo is proof that practicality can be beautiful. Its bold lines and available machined-finish 18-inch alloy wheels showcase its luxurious qualities. Plus, with a rear spoiler and our signature grille, it lets you know it means business. Test drive one today.

Design

Travel bright.

Driving the Rondo is an illuminating experience. Featuring available LED daytime running lights and LED light bar taillights – and available High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights – the Rondo assures you visibility no matter what time of day you’re on the road. The Rondo also features standard headlight washers to keep them free of adventure debris.

Design

Thoughtful details everywhere you look.

In a world of shrinking parking spots, Kia’s urban utility vehicle is built to fit. That’s why the Rondo has available sideview mirrors that retract at your touch of a button – a feature you’ll love while moving in and out of tight spaces. We also designed them with subtle signal repeaters, giving you that extra bit of visibility to others on the road.

Comfort

It’s what’s inside that counts.

See how the Rondo fits your life. Look inside and you’ll marvel at what you can fit into it. Available under floor storage provides you unexpected space to keep your belongings safe. Plus available heated front seats, an air-cooled driver’s seat and leather trim, you’ll spend road trips, grocery runs and playdates in the lap of luxury. Build yours now.

Comfort

Space to spare.

The Rondo’s interior is more than you’d expect for a vehicle its size. Its available 7-passenger seating can be configured as many ways as you can think of, lending a maximum of versatility to most any trip you can imagine. Big trip or small, the Rondo will take you and your passengers – and all your stuff – wherever you want, in both comfort and style.

(Slide to try)

Comfort

A family-sized sunroof.

If your family is used to looking out the window on road trips, the Rondo’s available panoramic sunroof will give them a reason to look up. With the press of a button, the large glass roof retracts to let all the sunshine in (sunscreen not included).

Comfort

Seasons are no match.

Don’t like the weather? Fortunately, the Rondo is well-suited to the Canadian climate. Available dual-zone automatic climate control lets you and your passengers program your comfort, while available heated front seats give all-round warmth. The driver’s seat can also come air-cooled – a blessing in summer. Plus, in the frigid months, your hands will thank you for the available heated steering wheel.

Comfort

Nooks and crannies are standard.

Think the Rondo has space to spare? Check out the handy storage areas in the rear cargo area and in front of the second row of seats – on the 5-seater model, you’ll find compartments that are ideal for stowing loose items or valuables and keep them safely out of sight.

Technology

Tech for the whole family.

With the Rondo’s available multimedia interface with voice-activated navigation1, you and your family will never have to give up the conveniences of technology on the road. All your Bluetooth®2-enabled devices sync effortlessly to play your favourite MP3s and take hands-free phone calls, with the added bonus of USB and AUX ports. Hello, urban mobile entertainment centre.

Technology

Clear and clustered.

With cargo as precious as yours, the more focused on the road you are, the better. Take comfort in the fact that the Rondo’s available enhanced LCD Supervision instrument cluster provides you with a variety of diagnostics and media information, as well as vehicle settings that are sharp, clear and readable at a glance. You never need to look elsewhere for essential information.

Technology

The key to convenience.

We’ve equipped the Rondo with some clever features that streamline the driving experience. Like the keys – the Rondo’s available Smart Key will unlock your car and let you start the engine with the push-start button all while being in your pocket. Parking is also made easier with the convenience of an available electronic parking brake that activates with just a flick of a switch.

Technology

Cool convenience.

The only thing better than stopping for a cold drink on a long trip, is not stopping. That’s because the Rondo comes equipped with a cooling glove box to keep beverages chilled. It’s a standard feature on all automatic transmission models.

Technology

Stow and glow.

If you want to transport it, odds are the Rondo’s cargo area can accommodate it. That goes for passengers too, as the rear seats fold up and down in up to 14 different seating configurations with the available third row. As an added bonus, the available removable LED flashlight recharges when plugged into its cradle and can help you see when it’s dark.

Safety

Versatility and safety go hand-in-hand.

It’s reassuring to know that the Rondo is as safe as it is versatile. Standard ultra-high-strength steel reinforces the cabin to provide added protection in a collision by channeling crash energy away from you and your passengers. Plus its standard six airbags – front, front side and rear air curtains – provide extra peace of mind.

Safety

Behind you 100%.

Backing up can be tricky enough with a car full of passengers. Thankfully, the Rondo looks out for you. Equipped with an available rearview camera, it helps avoid collisions by displaying on the dash screen a wide-angle view of what’s behind you3.

Safety

Parking made easy.

With available front and rear parking sensors a warning tone emits as your vehicle gets closer to an object – making parking far easier in tight spaces3.

Safety

Rondo means safe.

Driving should be fun, not worrisome. Enter the Rondo’s safety systems. Standard Hill Assist Control prevents rolling backwards when starting on steep hills. Brake Assist works with the anti-lock brakes to instantly apply full braking force if rapid brake movements are detected. Plus the Electronic Stability Control and Vehicle Stability Management keep a firm grip on slippery roads4.
