Once you get over the poorly photoshopped front license plate, you will notice Kia has enlarged the tiger nose grille and repositioned the logo on the hood. The lower front grille has also gone through surgery together with the LED daytime running lights while at the back there's a horizontal chrome trim connecting the LED taillights. The Venga is going to be offered with new alloy wheel designs ranging in size from 16 to 17 inches.

Changes continue on the inside where the compact MPV has received darker metal trim combined with bright accents, a fresh center stack fascia and two new seat trims. The Kia Venga facelift will be offered with an optional heated steering wheel and a new-gen audio & video navigation system packing a seven-inch screen offering support for a rearview camera and also capable of providing faster route calculation and processing speed.

Engine choices are carried over and depending on region there are six 1.4- and 1.6-liter gasoline and diesel engines generating between 77 HP (57 kW) and 128 HP (94 kW). Power of all engines is sent to the front axle via a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional four-speed automatic transmission. All engines meet Euro 5 emission standards and can be optionally fitted with Kia’s ISG (idle stop & go) technology, allowing the 1.4 diesel have CO2 emissions of 114 g/km.

The 2015 Kia Venga facelift is programmed to go on sale in Europe at the beginning of next year.
