Kia’s latest Peter Schreyer-designed mini-MPV is being shown in production form at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Unfortunately named the Kia Venga, this five seater is like a more practical Kia Soul. Only instead of getting funky styling you get standard stop-start technology. This car will almost certainly build more momentum for Kia in Europe, where scrappage mania has made Kia one of the fastest-growing brands. And this model was designed and engineered exclusively for Europe. In short, Kia is doing in Europe what VW wants to do in the US. And unlike VW, the image-shifting products are already arriving. Look out.
