TCC’s Bottom Line
When looking at the 2009 Kia Rondo, don’t judge a book by its cover. Though it doesn’t flaunt svelte good looks or flashy trim and wheels, you’ll see it in a different light once you discover how Kia uses the space inside. The 2009 Toyota Venza adds another flavor to the crossover melting pot, but it's a mild one.
