At 6'3" and 250 lbs, this car fits. It also has room for two boys(5+8) and their car seats. But barely enough room for them and Gramma in the back seat. We were used to a Saturn wagon, which we outgrew. The Rondo has more room than the Saturn and more storage. However, gas mileage in this commuter car struggles to make 26 mpg where the small station wagon used to get at least 33.
Overall a good decision, works for tall and not-so tall folks and works for our small family.
A LOT MORE FOR THE BUCKS

THE FIRST TIME I TEST DROVE THE RONDO AT CARMAX I was very impressed with its QUALITY, POWER SPACE, COMFORT, RADIO SYSTEM AND SOUND, LEG ROOM, HEAD ROOM, COMFORT AND EASE OF GETTING IN AND OUT OF THE CAR, SAFETY AND MOST ESPECIALLY TEH WEIGHT OF THIS CAR. KIA IS TRULY THE POWER TO SURPRISE. I TOLD MY WIFE ABOUT IT AND SHE CAME TO THE STORE AND BOUGHT IT. SHE LOVES IT AND I LOVE IT. GOOD WARRANTY PLAN. YOU WILL GET A SAFE FEELING WHEN YOU ARE IN IT.
I love this car

I bought my Kia Rondo after ten years with a Dodge Durango (purchased new in 1998). I really enjoyed the Durango, but I love the Rondo. I get great gas mileage, great pick-up, fits the family and the dog. Cargo hideaway is great for trips to the gym and the grocery. Split fold down rear seats are great for hauling large items and trips to the home improvement store and plant nursery. Car is quiet, rides great. Sits high like an SUV so your view of the road is GREAT. I really love the Rondo
