Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of Kia Rondo was introduced in Australia during 2008. This model is marketed as the Kia Carens in New Zealand and Europe.

The left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. Australasian specifications may vary and therefore models sold in Australasia might provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.

Safety equipment, as tested, not standard on all variants.

Dual front airbags, antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are standard. Side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard on all New Zealand variants and the Australian EX-L variants. They are optional on the other Australian variants. An intelligent seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver seat.

The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three-point seat belt is fitted to all seats. This provides better protection than a two-point (lap) seat belt.
