2007 Kia Rondo: Pushing the Limits of Fashion

January 16, 2008

Picture #1: our longterm 2007 Kia Rondo

Picture #2: some lady's pants

Question: What does a Rondo have to do with this lady's pants? Give up? Click the handy link below.

Answer: a low beltline.

The Kia's racy beltline may not win it awards for high fashion, but it is truly a functional design element. Visibility from the Rondo's driver's seat is panoramic, making for stress-free driving. In urban areas, you just plain see everything around you. It sounds simple but it's not as common as one might expect.

Also, the low beltline lends it a sense of airiness inside. On the Kia, not the lady.
