The Venga first appeared as the No.3 concept which was shown at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Kia says the Venga aims to have the interior space of a larger C-segment vehicle but in a smaller B-segment package.

Every engine in the Venga line-up will be available with Kia's Intelligent Stop and Go (ISG) technology and will comply with Euro V emission standards.

Venga will be marketed exclusively in Europe where customers will be offered a choice of two 1.4-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and diesel engines, generating between 73bhp and 113bhp.Kia Venga

The new model will feature a sliding 60/40 split rear seat that also folds flat into the floor, a twin-level boot floor and depending on model a tilt-and-slide all-glass panoramic roof.

The Kia Venga will make its world premiere during the Frankfurt Motor Show on September 15.
