Warren Brown and Lou Ann Hammond chat about cars on September 7, 2012

Paris Show question

Warren or Lou Ann- If you are going to Paris later this month, could you please check on Kia’s plans to bring the new, sleek Rondo to this country, and Mazda’s plans to introduce Skyactiv to their Mazda5? There seem to be repeated calls for fuel efficient 3 row passenger vehicles.

Warren Brown :

Warren here. I’ll check on those models in Paris. Kia’s problems with the Rondo was that the Rondo was an appearance and performance flop when the company first brought the Rondo to the U.S. five or so years ago. Kia and the Rondo have improved substantially sense then. We’ll see.
