Naza Kia targets to sell 300 units of limited edition Rondo

Published on May 27th, 2010

Naza Kia Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of Kia Motors vehicles in Malaysia, is targeting to sell 300 units of a limited edition higher-specification Citra II Rondo.

The limited edition Rondo features 13 new aesthetic and practical enhancements that add a sporty and premium touch to the popular versatile crossover utility vehicle (CUV).

Both the Rondo EX and EXS variants will feature the 13 new enhancements while the price of both vehicles will be maintained at RM86,088 and RM90,088 respectively. However, Naza Kia will offer these higher specifications for only 300 units of the Rondo, thus increasing the value proposition of the CUV for a limited period.

The 13 new specifications include both exterior and interior additions to the Rondo. Among the exterior additions include new front skirting, side skirting and door protector visors.

The limited edition Rondos will also be equipped with rear spoilers, wheel arch mouldings, rear skirtings, a rear bumper pad and a chrome tail pipe. These exterior additions lend more muscular and sporty characteristics to the overall aesthetics of the Rondo.

Inside, however, the new additions are aimed at enhancing the Rondo’s premium quality with the inclusion of a 9.5-inch overhead screen and DVD player, leather trimmed covered seats while the cars will be fitted with new solar tinting.

Furthermore, customers who purchase the limited edition Rondo will receive practical safety items such as an emergency kit bag, first aid kit, fire extinguisher and a tire inflator for free.

Both the Rondo EX and EXS are equipped with a 2.0L DOHC CVVT engine and share the same platform as the Kia Optima. The Rondo’s four-cylinder engine produces 147 PS and 189 Nm of torque and is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission with a sport mode.

With the capability of seating either five or seven passengers, the Rondo has a five-star frontal crash rating from the United States’ National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA). Standard features in the Rondo EX include body-coloured door handles and side mouldings and a black front grille with 15-inch alloy wheels while the higher specification Rondo EXS comes with a roof rack and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Since its launch in September 2008 until Dec 31, 2009, Naza Kia has sold 1,929 units of the Rondo. For the first four months of this year, Naza Kia has sold 264 units of the Rondo.
