The new Kia Picanto offers a level of comfort and sophistication that is totally unsurpassed in its class. The Picanto shares the same cutting edge safety systems as the larger vehicles in in the Kia range, as well as a stylish interior, incredible fuel economy, refined road handling and enhanced aerodynamic styling, it offers a fun and exciting driving experience.
The new look starts with a chunky styling inspired by the Kia’s larger models and the strong family ‘tiger’ grille, the rear has been given a larger screen, an exposed twin chromed exhaust and the taillights, colour co-ordinated mirrors, bumpers and door handles all add to the new funky design. The 3-door model has been given a more sportier feel with the redesigned bumpers, whilst the 5-door gives owners extra practicality that you may need in a smaller car.
Climb aboard and you will be greeted by an elegantly designed dashboard with all major controls within easy reach. The redesigned leather trimmed steering wheel takes it shape from the iconic front grille. With the increased wheelbase design gives the Kia Picanto up to 200 litres of storage space with a number of versatile options available to use to carry it, from the 60:40 split rear seats to the numerous hidey holes for bits and bobs. It’s compact yet full of surprises.
