2008 Kia Rondo "Best Family Car"

Email   small font medium font large font

The 2008 Kia Rondo was named a "Best Value" by Parents Magazine and in their annual list of Best Family Cars. Parents cited the optional third row, allowing seating for seven, as just one of the reasons the Rondo is a good choice for families.

"The best thing about Parents Magazine's recognition is that real parents who drive Rondos everyday with their families are the ones who recognized Rondo for its safety features, great value and amenities," said Byung Mo Ahn, group president and CEO of Kia Motors America and Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia (KMMG).

In addition to the third row and the price, Parents listed the hidden storage under the cargo area, split-folding rear seats and the front and rear power outlets, which kids love for plugging in DVD players and MP3 players, as additional benefits of the Rondo. One parent surveyed noted that her family of five was quite comfortable during a round-trip from Indiana to Colorado and noted "the pick-up is nice, and I find it easier to install car seats in it than in any vehicle I've ever driven."

Parents Magazine and list cover a range of sizes, styles and price points. The vehicles chosen share a commitment to safety, ranking at or near the top in government and industry crash tests and all offer cutting-edge technology to protect its passengers. Winners must have a strong track record for reliability and performance. Real parents who own the models were asked to judge their vehicle on factors like storage space, ease of car-seat installation and handling.
