I had the good fortune yesterday to stop by the Spitzer Kia in Cleveland, OH and they had their training Niro in the showroom. It was unlocked and I got to sit in it. I am currently in a Kia Soul, and I am a former Rondo owner. This car looks and feels like the love child of a Rondo and a Forte 5. As far as I'm concerned, it is perfect in every way. High enough off the ground to make entering and exiting easy. It has plenty of front seat leg room. The cargo area behind the 2nd row seats is large. It is better than I could have imagined. It will be my next car provided the price isn't too high with the features I want. If it is, I'll wait until a used one comes available.
