Kia Venga

The Kia Venga is a small MPV similar in size to the Nissan Note and the Citroen C3 Picasso, the Venga pipped both of these to be crowned best Supermini MPV by Auto Express magazine in 2010. The Venga is not laden with gadgets it is simply a good looking machine offering great style and space, excellent head and legroom for driver and passengers alike, rear seats that slide back and forth and fold flat too, hidden storage in the boot with hooks to stop your shopping falling over, up front the fascia is well laid out and the quality of the finish is excellent.

 

The Venga comes in four trim levels, 2  3 and 4. The Venga 2 has bluetooth connections, leather steering wheel and gearstick, rear electric windows, map lights, 16 inch alloy wheels and folding and heated wing mirrors, trim 3 adds 7 inch touchscreen with Sat nav and reversing camera, cruise control, heated front seats, part leather upholstery and automatic air conditioning. Top trim 4 adds a panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel.

The Venga is available with a single 1.6 litre petrol engine as a manual or Automatic and copes well in the fuel economy stakes, 37.2 miles per gallon as a manual and 34.4 on the WLTP cycle as an automatic. Acceleration to 62 mph is 10.4 seconds as a six speed manual and 11.1 seconds as a six speed Automatic. In general the 1.6 petrol is an excellent match for the size and weight of the Venga, more relaxing than a 1.0 litre turbo. The Venga offers ride height and space in a relaxed driving package.
