Yawn, I guess it is too late (5 years?) to have a win or lose argument on the Rondo Mazda5 topic , I would actually see Mazda survival as a brand in worse shape than the KIA one, but I'm no analyst ,
I guess the author is not killing "all" the cars that KIA makes. but rather says that it is better for Hyundai to absorb the KIA brand into its line-up as Hyundai now has much better reputation today than in the past against its Japanese, Korean (OK, KIA), European and America counterparts.
Hyundai Forte, Hyundai Soul anyone?
And yes, I guess the Rondo is gone for good in the US. Interestingly enough when Ford is now bringing the C-MAX and Nissan is bringing back the revamped Quest, are non-suv people movers making a comeback (see the Odyssey and the Sienna)?

i don't have problem with anyone making any prediction, but this writer is not able to present facts and prove he has a good understanding of the Hyundai/Kia brands.
i bet there is a better chance that oil will hit $150 than Kia disappearing in 2011.

Sad that SUVs are taking over once again
The site reads: "All good things should come to an end, but with endings, come new beginnings, introducing the all new 2011 KIA Sportage..."

looks like the Mazda 5 is going to have that niche of the market all to themselves for a while at least in the US, but not so in Canada.
It won't be long before the 2011 model will be arriving at dealerships. I see the US and Canadian sites are still not showing the details.
