In 2009, Kia unveiled the small MPV Venga at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
It was offered only for ten years and it didn’t have a successor.

The economic crisis was not done yet when the Kia launched the Venga at the Frankfurt Motor Show, an exhibition where more car-makers were absent. But Kia moved on with their new product. They had to show it to the public and make it a commercial success. It was built in the new Kia factory from Slovenia.

The design was made in Europe, at the Hyundai-Kia Russlesheim design center and it was built for Europe. It featured a small-MPV design, over a small-class platform. It featured a high greenhouse and big windows all-around to enhance visibility. The “tiger-nose” grille designed by Peter Schreyer might have been looked aggressive on other vehicles, but not on the Venga.

The high greenhouse allowed a higher seating position and more legroom for the rear passengers. The completely flat floor allowed good seating for three adults in the back. The rear bench seatback featured a reclining system, for more comfort.

Under the hood, there were four engines offered, two with gasoline and to diesel. Depending on the engine version, the standard transmission was a 5- or 6-speed manual. A choice for 4- or 6-speed automatic was on the options list.
