    Beneath the camo and snow probably lies the Kia Rondo variant of the Hyundai ix30. Both will be based on the Kia Cee'd, but expect the Rondo's personality to be less Flash Gordon and more fresh groceries than the Hyundai HED-5 concept upon which the ix30 is based.

    Kia just showed off its new Mazda5, and we like it. Actually it's called the Rondo and although it is a tall wagon like the Mazda, it lacks the 5's sliding rear doors. It does, however, trump the 5 in height and width, as well as in number of seats at 7 versus 6 for the 5, although only in the optional three row form. Confused yet? There's more. It's ...
