PROS

Nippy around town, spacious, excellent visibility, good value

CONS

Dull interior, vague steering, notchy gearchange, 1.6-litre petrol only offered with four-speed automatic, diesel's noisy

Verdict

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.
