Back in 2009 at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Kia unveiled the Venga MPV a new model based on the No3 Concept car displayed earlier that year at the Geneva Motor Show. Five years after the launch, Kia will unveil an enhanced version of the Venga at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
As expected, the 2015 Kia Venga will arrive with a new ‘tiger-nose grille’, just like the one featured on the new Sorento, a repositioned Kia badge on the front, redesigned lower grille fitted with fog lights and LED daytime running lights. The rear end will show a new horizontal chrome trim, new rear light clusters, and LED bulbs.
New 16- and 17-inch wheels will be available too. The interior will get a darker metal trim, a new centre console and audio system, optional heated steering wheel as well as the new-generation AVN system with 7.0-inch display.
A choice of up to seven 1.4-liter and 1.6-liter petrol and diesel engines will be available, delivering between 77 and 128 hp. The engines will deliver the power to the front wheels and will be offered with five- or six-speed manual transmissions but also with optional four-speed automatic transmissions.
The new Kia Venga will go on sale in Europe early in 2015 and will be built at company’s Zilina plant in Slovakia.
