I'm impressed by this. And this has 162 HP which beats the Mazda5 by 5HP. Not digging the headlights because it doesnt flow with the grille but nonetheless Kia does have the power to surprise me.

I didn't know this was out. I saw one yesterday at the dealership. Yet theres no info or pricing on Kia's website.

Looks way better in person. As sporty as the Mazda5..

Well Kia didnt even release a press release yet. Probably the first Rondos arrived recently.

Kia Rondo makes early entry

Dale Jewett | | Automotive News / November 1, 2006 - 4:01 pm

The Kia Rondo is here, albeit a bit early.

Tucked at the bottom of Kia Motors America's U.S. sales data for October was an entry for three sales of the Rondo -- a small wagon meant to compete with the likes of the Mazda5.

But the Rondo wasn't expected in U.S. showrooms until early next year, possibly as a 2008 model.

Instead, Kia will mount a "soft" launch of the Rondo, spokesman Alex Fedorak said today.

How soft? There's no Rondo advertising. The vehicle isn't even listed on Kia's public or media Web sites.

So how did three people last month know it was on sale? Word of mouth among Kia employees, Fedorak surmises. He adds that Kia expects to sell no more than 500 Rondos by year end.

Lol... thats crazy. I guess they will push/advertise it next year. I was pretty shocked when I saw it. It was late at night but the dealer had their lights on and everything. Black on black, looked european for some reason.

We have a Rondo at our Kia store. No literature, brochures, sales training...nothing.

Is is pretty nice though, a silver base model with a/c and auto.

Pirced at less than $18,000 it's a lot of car for the money. Esp the rear doors(they are BIG)
