Before winter arrives Kia plans on having the Kia Rondo available in Australia.
If you don’t quite recognise the model name then think Kia Carens in overseas markets and you’re right on the button.
Overseas the Kia Carens comes in a variety of equipment levels and is available in either 2 litre petrol or a 2 litre diesel versions with either a 6 speed manual or a tiptronic automatic transmission. The Carens seats 6 in three rows and comes with a variety of features including rear-park assist.
Overseas the Kia Carens is marketed as a fusion between an SUV and a people mover.
Here in Australia the Kia Rondo may come with the diesel option and it may also come with the option of some rather eye-catching colours including this one – otherwise known as Violet Iris.
Final details – including price – are yet to be decided.
