Kia has revealed the first images of its new Rondo (also known as the Carens), which is set to make its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show in September. The company says that the third-generation compact MPV is a lower, sleeker proposition offering plenty in the way of space.

The new Rondo – conceived around the theme ‘responsive space’ – will feature a completely fresh, sleek, cab-forward design, replete with a lower roofline, longer wheelbase, larger wheels of up to 18-inch sizing as well as a chrome beltline accent among the design cues. No other details as yet, so expect more as Paris gets closer.
