The weekend of the 19th May marked our All-New Kia Picanto launch event. As such a popular choice for drivers in East and West Sussex, we were excited to present the highly anticipated Kia Picanto, which took centre stage next to it's slightly bigger brother, the all-new Kia Rio, which was launched back in February.
With a fresh new appearance, and available in the new GT-Line (which features sporty details, similarly to the Kia Sportage and Cee'd GT-Line models). Just because the Kia Picanto is small, it doesn't mean it need to be spartan. In fact, customers cite equipment levels among their chief considerations in deciding what to buy- And the all-new Picanto will not disappoint.
Even the entry-level grade ‘1’ model features electric front windows, remote locking with a folding key, tinted windows, a radio with AUX and USB ports, automatic headlight control, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC).
On the other side of the spectrum, the GT-Line, comes with distinguishing features including, 16-inch alloy wheels, sports front and rear bumpers and side sills, a dual exhaust, black and red faux leather seats, a supervision instrument cluster, electric folding mirrors with LED indicators, satin chrome interior door handles, and privacy glass.
It doesn't have to stop there, the GT-Line S, the highest in the series, adds a wireless phone charger, an electric sunroof, heated front seats and steering wheel, a smart key and push-button engine start/stop, a 7-inch central display unit with satellite navigation and connected services, DAB radio, rear parking camera and sensors, a dual-height boot floor, luggage net and hooks and a driver's-side illuminated vanity mirror.
Despite the model already being launched, there is still more to expect from the supermini. Later in 2017, the most powerful engine ever offered on a Picanto – a 99bhp 1.0-litre T-GDi turbocharged unit – will be available to purchase from Birchwood & West Sussex Kia.
