The Kia Venga is a Mini MPV manufactured and marketed by Kia Motors since its debut at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show.[1] and shares its platform with the Hyundai i20, Hyundai ix20, and Kia Soul.

The Venga employs Kia's corporate grille, known as the Tiger Nose, as designed by Kia's design chief, Peter Schreyer. In December 2009, the Venga won Germany's iF Design Award.[2] In 2015 a new face lifted model was released and a new 6 speed automatic transmission is now available with the 1.6 petrol engine.
