New Engines

There are 3 engines available on the Venga. A 1.4 petrol engine with a 5-speed manual gearbox with 89bhp output delivers efficient, competitive and responsive performance.

The 1.4 CRDi engine again with 89bhp benefits from a 6-speed manual gearbox as well as Intelligent Stop and Go (ISG) as standard, with fuel consumption at 62.8 mpg combined and emissions at just 117g/km this engine is both efficient and economical.

A 1.6 petrol 123bhp petrol engine only available with a 4-speed automatic transmission is also available on the mid grade to satisfy those that prefer the ease of an automatic gear box.






New Technologies


As launched on cee'd, Venga also showcases EcoDynamics technology with the diesel engine featuring Intelligent Stop and Go (ISG) as standard. All models are fitted with Continental Low Rolling Resistance tyres as standard that further enhance our eco credentials by reducing rolling resistance by 12%.

Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Hill Assist Control (HAC), Brake Assist System (BAS) and Traction Control System (TCS)

Each model will have ESC, BAS, TCS and HAC fitted as standard.

ESC assists the driver to retain control by reducing the potential for over-steer or under-steer. BAS helps to optimise braking performance when quick braking is required and TCS helps to provide extra traction in adverse conditions

HAC aids the driver on an incline by holding the brake for up to 3 seconds, allowing the driver to switch from brake to accelerator helping to stop the car from rolling backwards or forwards.

Get a look at this post from Jan.2010.
The one thing that stands out are the Venga prices at the start of 2010.

In 2010 a 1.4 Venga "1" £11.498
In 2014 the same car £9.995

How often do you see prices going down over a 4 year period

It's not quite as impressive as it looks. A 2010 Venga 1 is the equivalent of a 2014 1 Air, which sells for £10,795 - still a price drop though.

In 2010 all Vengas had aircon (I've got a brochure from then). Kia only introduced the non-air model in 2012.

And boy am I glad, what's wrong with opening a window ??.

Never quite say the point in a full sunroof + climate control.
The sunroof must be making the climate control work overtime.

Or is it just me being a tight Scot ??.

I got my first car with air con in 2000 and no way would I go back to one without.

It isn't just about keeping cool, it makes for more efficient heating and demisting too.

It also saves you fuel if you use it right, above about 40mph the drag from an open window burns more fuel than running the air con pump. So, windows/sunroof at low speed, air con when going faster.

We get about 4 days up here every year when you might want to use A/C.

40mph ?????? have you seen the state of some of our A and B roads ???.

Once you get past Perth, it can be single track with passing places, 20mph maybe.

Oh, you are a canny Scot Highlander...there's us air con users facing potential regassing costs and all you have to do is a drop or two of 3 in 1 oil on your window winder and job done!

Hasn't Mr Salmond promised that the weather will be better after independence?

Never mind comparing prices with 4 years ago - has anyone tried to value their current car? Autotrader lists quite a few Vengas, and checking only my spec, shows I have lost £6k in 18 months - and that is if I want to buy my car, part ex will be even more of a loss. Glad it has a 7 year warranty, as I think I will be keeping it and running it into the ground.

We must call Mr Salmond 'Dear Leader'. He is always right. We are sent to correction and re-re-education if we disagree.
Air con is for softies. Real men sweat.

Anyone who owns a, frequently, wet dog, knows the benefit of air con!

Anyone who owns a dog should NEVER use A/C in the car.
It can cause the dogs eyes to dry out, and result in blindness.

We transport Guide Dogs, and its the first thing they tell you, no A/C when dogs are in the car

If vengas lose thier value then they good second hand buys.
When weather was hot it was only above 27 degrees C that it was bad. Air con is a waste in my view.
