Used Kia Venga (2010 - 2019) Review

The Venga is Kia’s first real serious attempt in making a small and practical people-carrier. With its high roofline and short body it offers an alternative to the likes of the Renault Grand Modus and Citroen C3 Picasso.

Kia Venga (10-19)
Nippy around town, spacious, excellent visibility, good value
Dull interior, vague steering, notchy gearchange, 1.6-litre petrol only offered with four-speed automatic, diesel's noisy

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3 out of 5

The Venga is Kia’s first real serious attempt in making a small and practical people-carrier. With its high roofline and short body it offers an alternative to the likes of the Renault Grand Modus and Citroen C3 Picasso. As well as being just as practical as the French manufacturers’ efforts, it is reasonable to drive and it makes perfect sense as a city runabout.

Add in the peace of mind that comes with a seven-year warranty and the Venga is a serious contender to more established competition.

 Good fuel economy (49/gallon mixed London driving) and 140 annual tax. The 1.6 engine is nippy and easily delivers the power of my previous 1.8. It cruises at 85 (albeit loud).
