The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Take a look at the family-friendly Rondo inside out. Though it's not that attractive from the outside, once you see how Kia uses the space inside, you'll see it in a different light. Provided you don't expect too much of a zoom-zoom feel, the 2008 Mazda Mazda5 is one of the few good choices for buyers looking for minivan spaciousness in a vehicle that's especially fuel-efficient and maneuverable.
