The new Kia Pegas offers value-seeking families and first-time buyers the perfect combination of technology and space to inspire and enable mobility, progress and freedom. It seamlessly fulfils their everyday needs while simultaneously creating room for their aspirations. After all, is there any greater reward than the space to move? Upmarket design coupled with class-leading practicalityMeasuring 4,300 mm long, the Pegas is one of the largest vehicles in the A/B-class, yet remains compact enough to easily thread through urban traffic. Its long (2,570 mm) wheelbase means the Pegas offers ample cabin space for all passengers, front and rear, while its large boot makes it one of the most versatile cars in its class. Manufactured to Kia’s exacting quality standards in China, the new Pegas is offered in five exterior colours: Clear White, Titanium Silver, Blue Stream, Marcato Red and Aurora Black Pearl.Typically Kia bold in design, a wide, horizontal ‘face’ gives the Pegas a sporty, solid appearance, and incorporates the brand’s famous ‘tiger nose’ grille, a DNA signature common to all Kia vehicles around the world. Smart chrome highlights and 14-inch alloy wheels on the higher specification imbue the sedan with a decidedly upmarket appearance despite its value-focused positioning.Inside, comfortable seats, room to stretch and clever design details make the Pegas’ interior an inviting place to be. Taking centre stage on the contemporary dashboard is a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system incorporating a reverse camera with dynamic guidelines, a standard fitment throughout the range (alongside rear park-distance control sensors). The system also boasts Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port and wired Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It can be controlled handsfree and safely via switches on the steering wheel. Depending on the model grade, the Pegas’ interior is trimmed in either smart cloth or highquality artificial leather, and all variants offer cupholders and a central armrest for the driver.Further adding to comfort levels, electrically adjustable side mirrors and windows are included on the entire range. The 475-litre boot is the largest in the compact sedan class. Efficient, proven engine technologyThe new Pegas is powered by the latest incarnation of Kia’s 1.4-litre multi-point injection petrol engine, producing 69 kW at 6,000 r/min and maximum torque of 132 Nm at 4,000 r/min.
