Kia Motors To Debut New Mini Car - Figures and Features | Part Two


The class-leading CO2 figures reflect the push toward leaner, greener vehicles. The 1.0 litre engine produces a miserly 120 g/km. The 1.1 version generates 130 g/km in the five-speed manual version and 153 g/km in the four-speed automatic version.

With a choice of 14" or 15" alloy wheels and many other attractive and useful features, the A-segment Kia furthers the company’s goal of developing a "young, sporty, friendly" brand image.

The Kia also comes with an instant mobility system instead of a spare tyre. This boosts interior space and increases the safety and versatility of the car.

In terms of safety, the mini Kia will reach the best standards that can be expected from a modern car in this segment nowadays, both for active and passive aspects.

"Our new A-class car offers a blend of contemporary styling and a full range of features. It is tailor-made for the active lifestyle favoured by the younger generation," says Kia Motors COO Yong-hwan Kim.
