Naza Rondo (Citra II) to spearhead Kia growth in Malaysia?

Naza Kia has had a stellar feedback on their recently introduced Rondo MPV, selling considerably well since its introduction in September this year.

"Sales results for the first two months of our Rondo introduction, more than 300 units, are in line with our objectives and confirm that more new customers are switching to Naza Kia products. I'm delighted to observe that this process is accelerating with each new model we introduce," commented SM Nasarudin SM Nasimuddin, CEO of Naza Group. "In this landmark year of change for Kia, the new Rondo and our other top models like the Optima, Sportage, Sorento and Spectra5 were both highly praised by members of the motoring media and our customers for having the best specifications for the prices offered in their respective segments. So far it looks like 2009 is already shaping up to be a great year for Kia in Malaysia."

Customer feedback thus far has gone beyond expectations, with many praising the Rondo's excellent fuel consumption which they can monitor thanks to the in-dash Trip Computer. Other features mentioned include the 6-speaker audio system with steering wheel mounted remote control*, automatic air-conditioning*, roof rack, folding door mirrors and attractive alloy wheels.

Journalists too, have come forward with nothing but praise for the Rondo. "Going uphill is again another starter for us as the Rondo, with seven adults, just cruised along without straining its engine. Seriously, it was such a refreshing experience as we never felt a Korean engine this good and this smooth," reported motoring news editor Hezeri Samsuri. "Sound insulation is good and on par with Japanese sedans in its price category. Bumps and holes are muted well, and so does the engine noise. The Rondo does have a good dashboard layout and the material used is also durable and does not look or feel cheap, which speaks of the improvement in quality noted over its predecessor.

The Rondo is a definite value-for-money vehicle. Aside from the Naza badge, I believe the specifications is comparable to the Japanese makes.
