    I’m still really really impressed with the interior of new Kia Venga, it doesn’t look cheap like the Jazz, Fiesta, Mazda2 crowd. Looks more upmarket.

  2. Darren says:

    The venga it’s not for USA , It’s for Europe . The engines of the venga is 1.4 / 1.6 both petrol & diesel 75 – 112 bhp . It’s built in europe and for europe market only.

  3. Darren says:

    sorry the bhp of the venga is from 75 – 125 bhp

  4. BJD (Boris) says:

    I personally think these models designed for europe and made in europe for europe shud stay there. cuz every next Kia is better than the previous. so whatever the next rio will be, it will be better than this.

  5. forte says:

    kia venga is europe only

  6. Thomas says:

    This KIA won’t be manufactured in Slovakia, but in sister factory Hyundai in Nošovice (Czech Republic).

  7. Lyndsay says:

    I would like to see this car it appears to be very versitile, when is it available in the uk. I read that it may be here in February

  8. Lelanie Nel says:

    Hi Kia; Will the Kia Venga ever be available in South Africa. It looks like a wonderfull car!!

  9. Kia says:

    Kia Venga will only be marketed in Europe.

  10. Brendan says:

    Just tested the 1.4 CRDi Venga ‘2’ EcoDynamics which I like very much apart from the under-powered engine.
    We were promised the 1.6 CRDi 115PS 6 Speed Manual & 4 speed auto which would make the car almost (for me!) perfect. Is the 1.6 diesel to be fitted in the near future? If so when will I be able to buy one in London?
    My other option is to buy the hyundai i30 estate (Comfort 1.6 CRDi 115PS) which gives me the right engine & almost the same space for a similar list price. Ok only a 5 year warranty (not 7) but hyundai gives 5 years breakdown too!
    The big attraction with the i30 is a whopping £4000 off the list price.
    Look forward to hear Kia’s thoughts.

  11. himi says:

    Kia Venga ia available with 1,6L CRDI but as far as I know, not in the UK. Kia will probably bring it to the UK later next year. Instead of going with Hyundai i30, which is a nice car, you should check out the cee’d hatch or cee’d sw. They both drive great and look good as well.

    This model of KIA is very popular in Russia. Especially among women.
