Kia Rondo

What's on this page

Kia Rondo

The Kia Rondo is a small people mover-slash-hatchback that has been on sale in Australia since 2008.

All variants of the first-generation Rondo have been equipped with a four-speed automatic until the series was replaced in 2013, when a six-speed automatic was introduced.

The 2013 upgrade also saw an improvement to the base 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and the introduction of the 1.7-litre turbo-diesel model.

Prices for the front-wheel drive car range from $16,800 to $28,710 for the Rondo S and Rondo SI (nav) variants, respectively.

The Kia Rondo can also be called the Kia Rondo7, Kia New Face, Kia Carens, and Kia New Face.

Kia Rondo Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Kia Rondo here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Kia Rondo 2019: Will parts be more expensive now Kia has stopped selling the Rondo in the Australian market?

    Service costs won’t be affected, but some people might be put off because it’s no longer on sale. Parts will still be readily available through Kia for a long time to come.

  • Best budget 7 seaters?

    The used Captiva does appear to be great value, but their shaky reputation for reliability would lead me to consider other options. The Territory would be a better bet, but they are known to have electrical and front suspension issues in the long-term.  If you're after an SUV, a seven-seat 2006-12 Mitsubishi Outlander is smart buying at the moment, but if you're just after the seven seats, I highly recommend taking a look at a 2008-13 Kia Rondo. These represent excellent value at the moment. Hope that helps, and keep us posted with your progress.

    The three cars you name all have merit, none has any major issue to be concerned about and all fit your needs, but you will have to shop around to find them within your age and budget limits.

Kia Rondo Interior

The quirky Rondo boasts heaps of practical interior space, but the dated look and feel of the trim keep Kia’s tallboy hatch from greatness.

The dashboard boasts a 4.3-inch multimedia touchscreen that is functional, if not flashy. A leather-like material is found on the steering wheel and doors, but the rest of the interior is hard, scratchy plastic, as seen in these images. Occupants have ample room though, and there are significant storage options peppered throughout.

Shown above are interior details for the Kia Rondo 2017.
