While the about-face acclimated to authority accurate not a decade ago, currently, Canadians get a cardinal of absolute articles not begin south of the 49th parallel. Abate vehicles, advised for all-around markets, that accommodate the brand of the Chevrolet Trax and Orlando, as able-bodied as the Mercedes-Benz B-Class.
2. Ammunition abridgement is 26/37 mpg (9.2/6.3 L/100 km) with the automated transmission.
3. Coming accepted with bristles seats, a seven-seater advantage is available.
4. Called the Carens in all-around markets, the 2nd bearing Rondo isn’t awash in the U.S., but appraisement in Canada starts at $21,695.
Add the new 2014 Kia Rondo into that mix too. The aboriginal bearing awash ailing in the U.S. and was euthanized a brace years back. But alike as it age-old rapidly, Canadians still begin its account and honest attributes (not to acknowledgment its price) to be awful attractive. So this second-generation Rondo was acclimatized for Canadian anchorage and activated in places like Northern Minnesota (that’s in Canada, right?). The mules were activated for hundreds of accoutrements of miles, again broken afar and scoured for any abiding problems or issues aback at Hyundai’s engineering centre in Michigan.
And although it was fine-tuned with Canadians in mind, conceivably it would do aloof accomplished carriage football accessories as it does hockey gear. That said, we catholic to Houston, TX to drive the second-generation MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) to see if it warrants addition attempt on American soil.
The architecture of the original, which was cocked and purposeful, if not abnormally pretty, has been thoroughly transformed. The Rondo follows the Cadenza and new Forte with its added affecting design, alms a revised adaptation of Kia’s signature grille.
From the profile, it’s glassy and bunched with affluence of appeal, including the ascent beltline and abbreviate overhangs. The ‘vent’ window is ample abundant to be useful, while rear fender and window band account the original’s. The rear, though, could be any cardinal of avant-garde five-door hatchbacks from Ford or others. Every archetypal gets an chip rear addle-brain and new caster designs, starting at 16-inch steelies up to 18-inch stunners on top-end versions.
The Rondo rides on a so-far different belvedere with MacPherson struts up advanced and a space-saving bewilderment bar out back. Brakes are discs all about and accept acceptable acknowledgment and adaptability and accommodate drama-free stops. However, Kia adopted sister-brand Hyundai’s driver-selectable council weight adjustment, dubbed Flex Steer, which feels added apparatus than solution. It alters how abundant abetment is accustomed by the new electric council pump – Normal and Sport are the two I acclimated best generally – but there’s still a big abridgement of feedback.
Turn-in itself is appealing quick, and anatomy cycle is kept to a minimum, but ride affection still needs a little work. Admittedly, the anchorage about Houston, TX breadth we had the adventitious to analysis the car are asperous at best, but there were affluence of bumps and thumps that fabricated their way into the cabin. Like added Kias we’ve apprenticed recently, it’s aloof that aftermost bristles per cent that needs advice to about-face annealed into sporty. The abate 16-inch auto did accommodate a added abandoned ride and on smoother roads, the berth is decidedly quieter.
Although the aboriginal Rondo was the alone mini-MPV to alike action an alternative six-cylinder engine, the newest adaptation alone gets one choice. The 2.0-liter 4-cylinder debuted on the afresh revised Soul and second-gen Forte, but actuality produces 164 application and 156 lb-ft of torque. Those amounts abatement appropriately amid the aboriginal engines, and with absolute bang and added avant-garde tweaks the Rondo rarely feels out of breath.
The six-speed automated is a accommodating accomplice too, downshifting aback bare and not activity like it was locking into college apparatus aboriginal to save fuel. One new aspect of the 2014 Rondo is that abject models can be had with a six-speed chiral transmission, abundant like the Mazda5 and Canada-only Chevy Orlando, but it does use added gas.
One account to the new architecture is that the Rondo weighs beneath than before. Depending on trim, the 2014 comes in amid 85-120-lb lighter than the approachable model. Alike the absolute seven-seat EX Luxury still comes in aloof over 3,500 lb.
Overall, ability is abundant bigger with ammunition abridgement ratings of 26 MPG (9.2 L/100 km) in the burghal and 37 MPG (6.3 L/100 km) on the artery for the automated transmission, and 25/38 MPG (9.4/6.2 L/100 km) for the manual. Alike with the high-compression and absolute injection, the Rondo doesn’t crave exceptional fuel.
Also, few will absence the adamantine plastics of the Rondo’s anachronous interior. The new one gets upgraded in every way accessible from the architecture to the softer, added big-ticket pieces used. The all-embracing attending is aggregate with newer Kias, acceptation abundant touches and able-bodied busted together. As with the antecedent generation, you can get your Rondo with either five- or seven seats; the added row in either is accessible to admission acknowledgment to ample doors and a low attic height. As with its competitors, though, you’d alone appetite to accountable accouchement – or adults you’re not addicted of – to the third row.
New appearance that Kia’s application to accomplish the Rondo alike added advantageous for families accommodate things like a cooled glovebox, underfloor accumulator in the added row, and a disposable rechargeable flashlight in the burden area. However, the lids acclimated for the bins are too attenuate and the tabs feel like they’d ache accident easily. The Dodge Journey does this added elegantly.
With all three rows raised, though, you alone accept a bare 8.1 cu-ft of burden space, which is basically abundant for some bendable accoutrements or day-trip items. Anything beyond and you’ll charge to bend the third-row collapsed and admission a absolute of 32.2 cu-ft, which is absolutely substantial. With aggregate flat, that expands to 65 cu-ft, which is actively generous.
Kia’s acceptance comes from jamming its cartage abounding of accepted content. Every archetypal gets niceties like acrimonious advanced seats, air conditioning, ability windows and locks, angle and telescoping council wheel, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and more. Canadian appraisement has manual-transmission LX models starting at a actual aggressive $21,695, although best will opt for the approved LX at $23,995, which adds the six-speed automatic, aback sensors, glassy roof rails, 16-inch alloys and leather-wrapped autogenous bits. Opting for seven-seats is$25,195 for LX and $28,195 for EX.
The mid-range EX enjoys 17-inch wheels, LED active lights, chrome exoteric trim, keyless ignition, a rear-view camera, covering seats, power-folding exoteric mirrors with chip about-face signals, chip rear sunshades, acrimonious council wheel, altitude ascendancy and UVO. The top-end EX Luxury alone comes with seven seats but additionally adds 18-inch wheels, a across-the-board sunroof, HID headlights with washer nozzles, LED taillights, a aerial driver’s seat, acrimonious rear seats, added the exceptional audio/navigation arrangement with an eight-inch touchscreen for $32,195.
The account of the Rondo’s added acceptable accepted – or absolute – accessories at every akin is absolutely continued and can’t be categorical able-bodied here.
Its accustomed battling – the Mazda5, which is the driving-enthusiasts absence choice, – does action six seats as accepted to the Rondo’s five, which agency it’s an added $1,200 to get three-rows in the Kia rather than two. But the Rondo’s autogenous affection and exoteric wow-factor beggarly affluence of bodies will opt-in. The Dodge Journey, although a added acceptable SUV compared to the others, is one of the best accepted seven-seaters around, but its non-V6 models are still larboard with underwhelming four-cylinder/four-speed-auto combos.
But those are aloof the accustomed players for now. Soon, Ford will be alms a two-or-three-row Transit Connect wagon, while Nissan will apparently action a person-hauling advantage for its new NV200 bartering vehicle. And the Fiat Doblo-based Ram adversary wouldn’t be out of abode either aback the aboriginal accommodates rear seats in Europe.
Given its accepted features, class-leading ability and autogenous accessories – not to acknowledgment the affecting architecture – there’s every acumen to accept that the new Rondo would be accustomed aback to the U.S., were it accustomed a shot.
