Quick Look

Kia doesn’t seem like they are going to push promotions for their new 2016 Kia Rondo as much as they are for other lines like the new Kia Soul. This may be a great indicator of how this compact-crossover is, which doesn’t seem too good.




Full Review

The 2016 Kia Rondo surprisingly isn’t being promoted by Kia as much as their new Kia Soul. This is scary news for the Rondo because this may be their way of saying they don’t really care about this line and might not continue on with it in the future. Most changes done to the new 2016 Kia Rondo were done to the front and rear looks of the compact-crossover. Not much has changed in general which may also be the reason why Kia decided not to promote the new updates.

Looking at Kia’s new updates, the headlights on the new model seem to be a bit sharper on the edges, which really adds on to the look. Taking a look at the rear view of the compact-crossover, we can see that Kia has made no changes to it at all. It is the exact design as the 2015 Kia Rondo which either means they may believe there is nothing to change about it or they didn’t put as much emphasis on this model as it is not their strongest sell.

Moving on to the interior design, we can see they have included more satin-finish trim on the control panel and a new shiny black center stack surround system. This new model is also bringing back the Packages which include UVO multimedia system and a backup camera. The interior also includes a centre console, armrest and shifter, black cloth seats with grey leatherette trim, along with grey padded door panel inserts and grey stitching on the steering wheel. In addition, Kia has decided to stick with the same amount of cargo space they had for their previous year’s model.

Taking a look at under the hood of the new 2016 Kia Rondo, we can see they use a 2.0-litre I-4 engine which is able to produce 164 horsepower and 156 pound-feet of torque. The engine runs on a 6-speed manual transmission which is offered as a base. In terms of fuel efficiency, the new Rondo requires about 10.8 litres per for every 100 kilometres driven in the city and about 7.4 litres for every 100 kilometres driven on the highway. As you can tell, the fuel efficiency is amazing on the new 2016 Kia Rondo, it’s what Kia owes its drivers after all the lack of new designs done to the new model.

Kia clearly needs to do a better job to attract more drivers towards their new Rondo, and it looks like to do that they really need to emphasize how fuel efficient their compact-crossover really is. They haven’t been doing that well of a job with keeping up with their competitors, and a lack of promotions may mean they might not continue with this line. Kia also really lacked changes done to their exterior look which may have been nice for Kia drivers so they can could drive a bit more in style.

Interiors and Special Features:

Safety features:

Kia has definitely built the 2016 Rondo with safety firmly in mind. The ultra-high-strength steel that reinforces the cabin is standard on all trims, providing extra protection in collisions. The vehicle also comes with six airbags: front, front side and rear air curtains. If peace of mind is what you are after, you will find it here.
