Five star safety for Kia Rondo
Buyers of the much improved Rondo now get the peace of mind of a top safety rating.

Kia is becoming a brand new car buyers can rely on for safety and the new Rondo looks to be no different.

The Kia Rondo has just been awarded the maximum 5-star safety rating by Euro NCAP joining other models in the Kia range.

This is no mean feat considering the NCAP testing criteria has become more stringent over the past five years.

The seven-seat Rondo, which is priced from $29,990 in Australia, was awarded high marks for adult occupant protection and safety assistant equipment as well as pedestrian protection.

Standard safety features on the Rondo include six air-bags, an adjustable speed limiter and a seat belt reminder for all seats, front, middle and rear.

The Rondo also has safety features for those outside the vehicle with pedestrian leg protection technology and flashing brake lights during an emergency stop.
