2007 Kia Rondo: Unexpected Shift Performance

November 19, 2007

This is the PRNDL lever in our 2007 Kia Ronda Long-Term test car. Shortly after the first time I slid it into D and went on my way, I had an immediate reaction to the way it delivered gearchanges. It shifts like.

Nice work, Kia. This transmission blurs shifts seamlessly. The gearchanges aren't exactly blazingly fast, but their smoothness is an unexpected luxury in a car this affordable.
