Five models at Frankfurt
15 September 2009

Kia has launched five cars at the Frankfurt motor show.

Its star attraction is the all-new Kia Venga, a spacious B-segment MPV. It will feature alongside the facelifted Kia Cee’d, the new Kia Sorento SUV and the first European showing of the Kia Forte LPI hybrid saloon.

Kia is also launching its new EcoDynamics sub brand. The badge will be given to the most fuel efficient models within Kia’s existing range. Hybrid versions of the Cee’d and Sorento will be shown as part of the new sub brand.

Hyoung-Keun Lee, president of Kia Motors Corporation, said: “Kia’s exciting presence at Frankfurt will embody five premieres and highlight our brand’s stylish design, creative engineering and world-class build quality, for all the world to see.”

“Throughout the current global economic downturn Kia products have maintained their appeal to consumers and enabled us to increase our market share in many regions. I am confident that next year in Europe, the new Venga, new Cee’d and new Sorento will spearhead a successful sales drive to attract more newcomers to our brand.”

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
