Kia Venga Preview

Carmaker Kia developed a new spacious and dynamic B-segment MPV called the Venga which will have its first official public display at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The new model will go on sale later this year and it will be available for the European market. The Venga will have an unusually long wheelbase for its class and a roofline that maximizes the cabin space. All engines in the Venga lineup will be fitted with fuel-stretching ISG, Idle Stop & Go technology developed by Kia. It will also comply with Euro 5 emission standards. Consumers will be offered a choice of two 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter gasoline and diesel engines capable of developing between 75 PS and 115 PS. The latest Kia MPV will be equipped with a rear seat that also folds flat into the floor to create a spacious cargo bay and a tilt-&-slide all-glass panoramic roof. The production version of the Venga will have its world premiere at the Frankfurt International Motor Show on the 15th of September.

Gasoline and diesel engines with ISG (Idle Stop & Go) technology

Kia Motors Corporation has confirmed that its all-new, uniquely spacious and dynamic B-segment MPV will be named ‘Venga` when it goes on sale across Europe later this year.

Designed, engineered and manufactured in Europe, the 4,068 mm long Kia Venga will feature an unusually long (2,615 mm) wheelbase for its class - and a 1600 mm high roofline to maximize cabin space. Skilful packaging will ensure that the 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 ‘Venga` name for our all-new model has an attractive and lively sound that is ideally suited to our latest family car," comments Panu Vainamo, General Manager Marketing, Kia Motors Europe. "The name is derived from Spanish and has a modern, polished feel that fits well with European consumers` active urban lifestyles and also with Kia`s core brand values, echoing our ‘Power to Surprise`."

Every engine in the Venga line-up will be fitted with Kia`s fuel-stretching ISG (Idle Stop & Go) technology and will comply with Euro 5 emission standards. 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 115 ps.

The latest Kia MPV will be equipped with a sliding 60/40 split rear seat that also folds flat into the floor to create a spacious cargo bay and, depending on model, a tilt-&-slide all-glass panoramic roof.

The production-ready Venga, which is closely related to the Kia Nº3 concept car that debuted at the Geneva Show earlier this year to worldwide acclaim, will make its world premiere during the Frankfurt International Motor Show at 13.00 hrs (CET) on Tuesday 15 September.
