|2016 Kia Rondo Platinum latest car review suitable for families|
Why are we driving it?
To reacquainted with one of the cars sold today is forgotten: Fewer than 100 people have bought the compact Kia Rondo people mover in 2016, so it is rarely in a local way.
What we like
This is not an SUV. While very popular, high-rise "crossover" models such as the Kia Sportage is not for everyone, and it only takes a few moments at the wheel Rondo to understand why.
This is a proposition that is more compact and maneuverable than almost any other seven-seater sold, feels agile and more accessible in urban environments.

basics car like Rondo and lower ride height make for a smoother ride than most family-oriented SUV, making it easy to get along with the surrounding city.
Kia cabins were well executed with fun ingredients and thoughtful attention to detail - the independent sliding and reclining seat middle lend a lot of choice for young families, and learning to use it is not "rocket surgery".
We tested Rondo in the form of Platinum top-end a lot of gear including 18-inch wheels, leather seats with heating and cooling for the front row, heated steering wheel, smart key, a panoramic sunroof, touchscreen 7-inch navigation, stereo seven powerful speakers and dual-zone climate control.

Touches practically includes four 12-volt charging points scattered throughout the cabin and six cupholders and four bottle holders, flip-up table mounted in the rear passenger seat of the driver and front, clever under-floor storage space and a variety of convenient cubby hole to help keep the car looking neat.
As usual, Kia seven-year warranty, roadside assistance and closed price guarantee servicing are a winning combination.
