The Kia Rondo is a compact vehicle sold only as a four-door wagon. The overall shape is similar to a small minivan or SUV, but it cannot be easily classified. The Rondo features a front-engine design paired with front-wheel drive. With a functional interior, the Rondo is a versatile vehicle. However it lacks a defined role and has an unexciting exterior design. Although it is a viable alternative to a minivan or SUV, the Rondo has average fuel economy and cargo space.

The Rondo's base engine is a four-cylinder, producing 175 horsepower. The base Rondo should average 20 miles per gallon in city driving and 27 on the highway. A V6 engine putting out 192 horsepower is an optional upgrade for both trim levels. It receives 18 miles per gallon under city conditions and 26 on the highway. The base Rondo seats five, but can be upgraded with a third row of seating. Kia primarily designed the Rondo in South Korea and manufactured it in Hwasung, South Korea.

The Rondo was introduced at the 2007 Los Angeles International Auto Show. Although sales were above expectations in the first two years, the 2009 Rondo failed to sell many units. Kia halted production after the 2009 model year, citing the extremely poor sales in the vehicle's last year. Kia focused on its SUV and car offerings instead of redesigning the Rondo. While it was a functional vehicle, customers disliked the uninspired exterior design. Reviews of the Rondo were average, but highlighted the vehicle's functionality.

The Rondo is sold with either LX or EX trim. Anti-lock disc brakes, side air bags, and stability control come standard for both trim levels. The LX base includes 16-inch steel wheels, powered accessories, and an audio system with four speakers. The LX Plus package upgrades the wheels to alloy and installs a heating element in the front seats. The EX swaps in 17-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, and fog-lamps. The EX Premium package includes a navigation system with a touchscreen, an audio system with eight speakers, and a sunroof. A third row of seats is optional for the LX trim, but is standard in the EX version. An iPod adapter can be installed in either trim as a standalone option.

The NHTSA awarded the Rondo five stars for front and side driver safety. Consumer Guide named the 2008 and 2009 Rondos as Best Buys". Motor Trend placed the Rondo on its list of 2007 contenders for the "Car of the Year". Independent automotive reviewers found the Rondo functional and an adequate performer, but criticized the lack of creativity in the design. Reviews also noted that the Rondo failed to stand out in any particular role. The Kia Rondo is a compact vehicle sold only as a four-door wagon.
