To kick-off the year, Naza Kia Malaysia will be introducing the updated Kia Picanto, in its third generation guise. The third-generation Kia Picanto promises to be the most versatile in its class with an untypically futuristic new design, safety enhancements and better performance with advanced technological value-added features to fulfill the wanderlust of today’s Malaysian millennials.

As safety has always been a paramount of the Kia brand, the newest Kia Picanto was fitted  with double the proportion of Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) as compared to its predecessor. The 2018 Kia Picanto also has six airbags strategically placed in front and at the side of all passengers. Thus, giving parents a sense of security as their children go on exciting road trips with friends.

What’s a road trip without a specially tailored road trip music playlist? For tech savvy folks who need to stay connected at all times, the Kia Picanto has a large ‘floating’ 7.0-inch touchscreen at the centre of the dashboard which seamlessly connects to your smartphone; readily integrated using CarPlay and Android Auto with voice recognition features. Kia Picanto owners can have access to their smartphone functions via the Head Unit’s user interface for music, calls, messages and directions & navigation to ensure safe arrival at the travel destination.

The 2018 Kia Picanto is the ultimate travel companion for the adventurous as it boasts a greater luggage capacity and better space efficiency with its foldable second row seats (60:40 split), totalling up to 1,010 liters of cargo space; a vast improvement compared to its predecessor the 2nd generation Picanto.

Naza Kia Malaysia will be officially introducing the new Kia Picanto  on 10 January and sales roll-out is expected early next month. Drop by the Kia roadtour to peek at the new Kia Picanto, from 10-14 January at Highstreet, One Utama.
