Kia introduced its new model Venga at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The new model manufactured in Europe is a 5-seater MPV in the B-segment that goes on sale in Europe later this year. The latest model from Kia stable comes with two warranties to lure European buyers - a 7-year (drivetrain) / 5-Years (whole car) per 150,000 kilometers warranty and a 10-Year anti-corrosion warranty.

The car is based on the Soul platform which has the space of Focus and footprints of Fiesta. The Venga will be powered by 1.4 and 1.6 petrol and diesel engines, producing between 74bhp and 113bhp. It features an unusually long wheelbase for its class (2,615 mm) - and a 1600 mm high roofline to maximise cabin space. Every engine in the Kia Venga line-up will be available with Kia's fuel-stretching Start/Stop (ISG) technology and will comply with Euro 5 emission standards. Start/Stop (ISG) equipped models will have a CO2 rating from just 117 g/km (1.4-litre U2 engine).

"Kia Venga will certainly deliver all the practicality and versatility that a European family could require. It will also provide them with the most stylish transport this segment has ever seen," says Benny Oeyen, Director Marketing & Product Planning, Kia Motors Europe. "On the road, its performance and agility will surpass the class norm. Kia Venga will ensure that rewarding, fun-to-drive motoring is now available to drivers whose lifestyles demand an MPV."

Kia portrays Venga as the latest family car and derives its name from Spanish vocabulary. The overall look of the car is trendy with a modern feel suited for modern urban lifestyle.
