Panu Vainamo, the General Marketing Manager of Europe of Kia said of the Venga to be “The ‘Venga’ name… has an attractive and lively sound that is ideally suited to our latest family car. It offers a modern, polished feel that fits well with European consumers’ active urban lifestyles.” The word Venga is actually Spanish which according to Vainama “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’.” It has a 2,615mm wheelbase, 1,600 high and 4,068 long with a 60/40 rear seat and a tilt/slide panoramic glass roof, impressive isn’t it?
It comes in 2 engines which is 1.4 and 1.6 liter of which both have diesel or petrol variants as well. Unveiled recently at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Kia will start selling the Venga somewhere at the end of the year starting from Europe. Another impressive element of the Venga would be its fuel saving system which is the ISG (Idle Stop & Go). This B-Segment MPV surely got what it takes to have many people salivating probably because of its sheer looks. It would be safe to assume that this is not really an extremely powerful considering that it is quite big in size.
Kia is pretty confident of how the Venga will be performing in the market after the response at Geneva was more than positive. Hence it will be no different at Frankfurt. Over in the UK the Venga is deemed to be the type of vehicle which they know will be well demanded probably after the recent decrease in customers buying high priced cars. with a good flexible package for such a huge and comfortable car with abundant space, their customers can enjoy great style, fuel economy as well as sophistication and refinement, as voiced by Michael Cole, the Managing Director of Kia Motors (UK) Ltd.
