The compact APV of KIA Rondo was launched by KIA in 1999. It is also sold as Kia Carens. Its first generation was produced from 1999 to 2002. There were only two engine options available. One was a 1. 8 liter engine and the other was a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder motor. Both were gasoline engines and they were offered with either five speed manual transmission or four speed automatic transmission.
Rondo had such competitors as the Honda Element, Ford Escape, Saturn Vue and Scion xB. However, the KIA Rondo did well as it was offered at a lower price and offered great performance.
The second generation of KIA Rondo appeared in 2002 but the vehicle was not subjected to big changes. The same two engines have been used to hold down production costs. Also, Kia used the same transmissions for both automatic and standard. The vehicle was called KIA Carens II in South Korea and Indonesia. In Malaysia it was called Niza Citra. In Taiwan this MPV was called the KIA Euro Carens.
The third generation of Rondo was released in 2006. This update offered four options for the engine. It had a 2.0 liter engine, CRDi engine with 2.0 liter capacity and a 2.4 liter motor. The fourth engine used was a 2.7 liter Hyundai engine. Used Rondo engines are available as cheap replacements instead of buying a rebuilt engine.
When it comes to the transmission, there were the five and six speed manual transmissions as well as four speeds and five speed automatic transmissions offered. Since there were a lot of options, the Rondo has become a versatile vehicle with its fourth generation design.
In case you have an older generation Rondo you have the option to modify it by installing a Hyundai Delta engine in it. Since this engine has the same interchange, you will be able to money when repairing your MPV. A used Rondo engine could be bought online for a low price.
The new generation of KIA Rondo offers 16 inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, power windows and power door locks, four wheel disc brakes, ABS and many other features depending on the market where it is being sold.
