It looks like the next iteration might have similar interior packaging as the original Rondo with seating for five or seven depending on package choice. Engine and transmission options should, of course, be very similar to whatever Kia decides to offer in the new Cee'd.
The first Rondo was an affordable MPV that pretty much came and went with little fanfare. But if the Rondo gets a dose of Kia's current design language, it to sell a little better than the last model. Then again, it'd be hard to sell fewer.
Will the new Rondo be available to U.S. families? Who knows? There wasn't exactly a lot of love for for the model the last time, but competition in the small MPV category is finally heating up, so perhaps more buyers will be paying attention to the segment. We'll watch for more details from next week's Geneva Motor Show.
