Kia Venga heading to FrankfurtMon, 17 Aug 2009 00:00:00 -0700
Kia are to reveal the Kia Venga - a mini MPV - at the Frankfurt Motor Show
But now Kia has turned the No. 3 Concept in to a reality, and are launching the Kia Venga to the Frankfurt Motor Show next month (maybe they can get the Dutch dance band the Vengaboys to do the promo – boom, boom, boom?!).
Anyway, the Kia Venga. It’s a mini MPV which claims to have the space of a Ford Focus in the footprint of a Ford Fiesta. It’s a bit over 13′ long and a bit over 5′ tall. And the back incorporates a sliding bench that can be folded flat and a two-level boot area. Posh models also get a panoramic roof.
Engine choices are to be 1.4 and 1.6 litre petrol and diesel engines, all featuring stop-go.
Kia says that this is exactly the sort of car that buyers are looking for at the moment. And they’re probably not wrong. It’s going to be cheap (although Kia hasn’t given us price information yet), well-built and half decent looking. It stays pretty close to the No. 3 concept – just production form.
The Kia Venga will be shown at Frankfurt on 15th September.
