The 2010 Kia Rondo is a seven passenger 4-door wagon that comes in three trims; base, LX, and EX. The Rondo is powered by a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder inline engine that produces 175 hp and 169 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission the base Rondo achieves an EPA estimated 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. Upgrading to the EX trim level grants the driver a 5-speed automatic transmission paired with a 2.7-liter V6 engine that produces 192 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Standard features include keyless entry, power locks, power driver mirror, power passenger mirror, front bucket seats, cloth seats, AM/FM stereo, CD/MP3 player, and variable speed intermittent wipers. Safety is comprised of driver airbag, side head airbag, rear head airbag, traction control, electronic stability control, anti-lock braking, and side-impact protection. The Rondo is backed by 5-year/60,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less

Very roomy, versatile interior; smooth ride; safety features; affordable price; long warranty
The Rondo is shorter than most mid-size cars yet has an incredible amount of interior space; it's an ideal alternative for those who want something similar to, but smaller than, a minivan. Rondo also offers more standard safety features--including electronic stability controls--than some vehicles in its class. And Kia's warranty adds a lot of value; it covers powertrain components for up to ten years or 100,000 miles.
