Practicality & boot space Rating

3.5 out of 5

Practicality in the Kia Venga is very impressive. Kia's designers have done a great job of getting the most out of the limited space on offer from the car's length of 4.1 metres and width of 1.8 metres.

Visibility is good, because you sit quite high, so it's easy to nip in and out of traffic in town. This, along with the car's compact dimensions and optional parking sensors, makes parking a breeze.

Kia Venga interior space and storage

The Venga is very spacious for a car of its size, with more than enough room for four adult passengers. There's plenty of head and legroom in the back, so even taller people can get comfortable, while you can also slide your feet under the raised front seats to stretch out further. The back seats also recline if you fancy a doze.

Our only criticism here is that there are fewer storage bins and cubbyholes in the Venga than we'd expect in an MPV. The door bins are a little thin, with a wider bit to fit a decent-sized bottle of water. There are a few cubbies in the main console, but nothing spectacular.

Boot space

The Venga's boot offers 440 litres of luggage room, which compares well with the space on offer from rivals – the Ford B-MAX has just 318 litres, for example. But that space can easily be expanded to 570 litres, as the rear seats can be slid forward or back to increase boot capacity or legroom as needed.

And if you need an even bigger load area, then the 60:40 split-folding rear seats can be dropped down flat to create 1,486 litres of capacity. The boot's square shape and lack of large lip makes loading large objects easy, too. Also, a false floor adds a bit more storage space.
