Without employ of photon power, aluminum und shteel, or scantily clad Tyroleans sliding down ropes, Kia introduced the latest in the mini-minivans to hit North American shores. Falling into what we call the crossover category here in the US the RONDO is reminiscent of the Mitsubishi Expo or similar, if not talller and bigger space wagons. While the Mitsubishi Space Wagon is right up there with the Suzuki Super Carry in so far as super vehicle names are concerned the RONDO also seems to share a moniker with a brand of lightly carbonated kung-fu beverage from the 70's. RONDO gallery and RONDO-FU commercial after the jump.

The Kia RONDO features 60/40 second row and 50/50 third row seating along with available 182 hp V-6. The soda featured black belt guys with dry look lids and thirst slaking abilities. Sales may ramp up a bit more after more folks start to work up a RONDO thirst.
