Kia sales consultants offer Rondo models at an average discount of 29-34 million VND. In Vietnam the car has 2 versions GMT and GAT Luxury, list prices are 559 million VND and 655 million VND, the latter price is reduced to 530 million VND and 621 million VND. However, some agents also offer additional discounts for customers. The lowest GMT version is only 520 million VND and the GAT version is 601 million VND.
Kia Rondo has the lowest price of 520 million VND at the dealer.
Since its launch in Vietnam in 2014, Kia Rondo has seen many price cuts. Most recently, in December 2020, this model reduced the proposed price from 14 to 26 million VND. Currently, in addition to discounts from dealers, buyers also get accessories and a 50% reduction in registration fees because the Kia Rondo is assembled domestically.
Kia Rondo has dimensions length x width x height 4,525 x 1,805 x 1,610 mm, wheelbase 2,750 mm and ground clearance 151 mm. In terms of dimensions, the Kia Rondo is longer and wider, but lower than the Mitsubishi Xpander due to its low ground clearance. The low ground clearance is one of the weaknesses of the Kia Rondo if most Vietnamese prefer small MPVs with high ground clearance because of its versatility.
Both the GMT and GAT Luxury versions share the same 2.0-litre Nu petrol engine with 158 hp at 6,500 rpm and 194 Nm of torque at 4,800 rpm. Front-wheel drive, choice of 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.
The highest version is equipped with halogen headlights with projector lenses that turn on and off automatically. There are also automatic wipers, daytime running lights, electric / folding rear-view mirrors. The interior is simple with an 8 inch center screen, 6 audio speakers, steering wheel with paddle shifters, 3 driving modes, air filter, 2 interior units and leather seats. ABS, EBD, automatic gas control, speed limiter, reversing camera and 2 airbags are outstanding safety technology.
In general, in terms of equipment, Kia Rondo is slightly better than the small MPV group emerging on the market, but the design has not been updated for a long time, low chassis, seats in the 3rd row have less space than the competitors Xpander or Xpander. XL7, no ceiling-mounted vents and 2.0-liter petrol engine aren’t fit for service drivers…which is starting to make this model less attractive.
As of August 2021 to date, THACO has not reported any sales of the Kia Rondo, although the dealer has announced it has still produced enough cars in 2021 and 2022. In addition, it is rumored Kia Carens 2022 will be brought home by the end of this year.
