2014 KIA Rondo LX Review: The 2014 Kia Rondo LX has gone from a nice crossover to an all-around eye-grabber. Kia has changed the aesthetics of the 2014 Rondo LX to make it a show stopper, by streamlining the body with a more tapered look, then lowering and widening the overall body. The shift to a more luxurious appearance creates a more modern look, with an improved signature grille to look ahead into the future.
Sophisticated New Look
By far, the biggest change on the exterior of the 2014 Kia Rondo LX is its enhanced streamlined appearance. Lined with sleek aerodynamic contours, the new Kia Rondo LX has been designed in line with European-designed vehicles. What used to be a stereotypical minivan appearance has now shifted to an ultra-modern crossover, from the increased body-to-glass proportion to the body-coloured heated power side mirrors. Each model comes with an integrated rear spoiler and splash-guards on the front and rear, all held by the Rondo LX’s strong 16-inch steel wheels.
Fleshing out the 2014 Kia Rondo LX is a ton of storage space inside, like the underfloor trays, 60/40 split-fold second-row seats, and optional 50/50 split-fold third-row seats. In addition, the lower and wider body means there are more leg and headroom inside, making sitting in the black cloth seats even more comfortable. Kia has improved the interior’s look and comfort by upgrading it with higher-quality, softer pieces. The sound system offers 6 speakers with SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth technology, and AUX/USB inputs.
Under the Hood
All models on the 2014 Kia Rondo, including the LX, come standard with the 2.0L GDI engine and 6-speed manual transmission.
