In America, bigger is better. That might help explain the Mazda5 mini-minivan’s less-than-stellar sales here in the States, and why its only competitor, the Kia Rondo, was dropped from the U.S. market in 2011. Our colleagues at Automobile though, think Kia may be working on a follow-up.
This Kia tester was spotted in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The photographer says this Kia was about the same size as the Mazda5. Underneath all the camouflage the Kia, possibly a Cee’d-based Carens, appeared to share lots of design features with the Optima and Rio.
