The new Kia Venga
The Kia Venga debuts at Frankfurt Motor Show
Kia’s new model called the ‘Venga’ made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show. This new model will be manufactured in Europe and go on sale later this year.
The Kia Venga will be available with the Kia’s fuel stretching Start/Stop (ISG) technology and will comply with Euro 5 emission standards. Start/Stop (ISG) equipped Kia Venga models will have a CO2 rating from just 117 g/km (1.4-litre U2 engine).
The Kia Venga will be marketed exclusively in Europe where consumers will be offered a choice of two 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre gasoline and diesel engines, generating between 75 and 128 ps. Every version of the Kia Venga will be equipped with a sliding 60/40 split rear seat that also folds flat into the floor to create a spacious cargo bay. Depending on the model, an optional tilt and slide, all-glass panoramic sunroof will be available to flood the cabin with natural light. The Kia Venga is 4,068 mm long and features an unusually long wheelbase for its class (2,615 mm) and a 1600 mm high roofline to maximise cabin space. Skilful packaging ensures that the Kia Venga redefines its MPV category by offering levels of interior space typical of a larger C-segment vehicle, but within a B-segment footprint.
The Kia Venga looks like a very attractive proposition for urban car buyers looking for a spacious runabout, young families will find it particularly appealing, offering something different from the standard supermini.
