Previously, Kia Motors teased the world with the first renditions of the all-new Picanto. Today, Kia provides first glimpses of the third-generation Picanto in the flesh. The new Kia Picanto is scheduled for its first public appearance at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
The new Kia Picanto sub-compact reveals a youthful and energetic design with a
More assertive stance. Created by Kia’s design centers in Namyang, Korea and Frankfurt, Germany, the new Picanto in GT Line guise is a sport-inspired version of the Brands best-selling sub-compact model.
The new Kia Picanto ‘GT-Line’ specification conveys a more assertive stance through bolder body lines and subtly sculpted surfaces. A 15 mm-longer wheelbase (2,385 mm to 2,400 mm) also pushes the wheels further out into each corner for a more confident appearance. The Picanto’s color palette is more vibrant than ever, with a choice of 11 bright paint options designed to make the car stand out. In spite of its extended wheelbase, the Picanto retains its characteristically compact dimensions. With a shorter front overhang and longer rear overhang, the new model is the same length (3,595 mm) when compared to its predecessor.
Inside, Picanto’s suite of high-tech comfort, convenience and safety features is underscored by a modern and refined new cabin design. At the heart of the cabin is a new ‘floating’ touchscreen infotainment system, making the latest in-car technology available to occupants. The Picanto offers greater potential for customer personalization, with buyers able to choose from a range of colors for trim and upholstery.
Buyers of the new Picanto will enjoy smarter packaging efficiency than ever before, with more cabin and cargo space than rivals in the segment. Kia targets a third quarter sales roll-out of the new Picanto…
The current generation Kia Picanto is distributed by Naza Kia Malaysia; available from just RM61,888 in five distinctive colors: Alice Blue, Bright Silver, Clear White, Galaxy Black and Signal Red.
