All-new Kia Rondo (Carens) to premiere at Paris Show

  • Lower, sleeker compact MPV promises stylish spacious practicality
  • World premiere on September 27 at Paris Motor Show

SEOUL, July 25, 2012 /CNW/ - Kia's all-new Rondo compact MPV will make its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show on September 27.

With a completely fresh, sleek, cab-forward design, lower roofline, longer wheelbase, larger wheels (up to 18-inch) and chrome beltline accent, the new Rondo has been conceived around the theme 'responsive space'.

Also known as Carens in some countries, the new Rondo will combine sporty looks with spacious functionality and an emotional appeal that is becoming a regular feature of Kia products.

The Kia press conference for this year's Paris Motor Show is scheduled for 17.30 hrs (CET) on September 27, and the new Rondo will be on display throughout the Paris Motor Show until the final public day on October 14.
