2014 Kia Venga Crossover Limited Edition Unveiled

2

The hatchback turned crossover vehicles seems to be the trend for 2014, with the likes of the SEAT X-Perience and the Fiat Panda 4X4 Cross already out there on the (European) market.

You can add the Kia Venga Crossover into that mix, with a limited edition available in the Italian market, boasting both diesel and gasoline engines.

Word from Kia Italy is that only 200 units of the vehicle will be made available, at a starting price in the $19,700 region.

Development costs don’t really match the offering, which means the vehicle will likely show up in other markets moving forward.

The all-new Kia Venga Crossover maintains the bubble-like design and is based on a B-segment MPV.

Kia Venga Crossover exterior enhancements

  • front & rear underbody protection
  • plastic body cladding
  • 17-inch alloy wheels
  • different fog lights

New protective body cladding elements have been added to this design, which includes side skirts and door guards, both of which have a crescent wave styling.

The vehicle can be ordered with a 1.4-liter engine that runs on either petrol or compressed gas. There are also a pair of onboard fuel tanks which, when combined with the original tank, cab deliver a 1,300 kilometer driving range.

The Kia Venga Crossover comes with the same 7-year/150,000km warranty offered across the entire Kia line-up.

The eye-catching exterior design of Kia Venga and flex-fuel option make this a definite niche vehicle, but one that is definitely sure to appeal to the right kind of buyer.

    To the Rep: When the Venga hits the U.S. shores just remember I’m available for long-term test driving. It’s the least I can do as an avid, and loyal, KIA owner and aficionado. Thanks.

    Sorry, but Kia Venga is not coming to the States. Even the redesign is questionable… it remains to be seen whether Kia debuts the second-generation Venga MPV or replaces it by smaller crossover vehicle (as seen at previous spy shots).
