Kia Picanto The upgraded Picanto boasts some impressive technology from Kia’s larger cars, meaning it is one of the safest cars of its class. It also offers Kia’s new ‘Phase II’ UVO Connect telematics technologies, enhancing vehicle connectivity to take the stress out of journeys. Enhancements have been made to the Picanto’s petrol powertrain line-up, including a new automatic option. Now, the Picanto is available with two highly distinctive body styles with the crossover-style ‘X-Line’ models sitting alongside the conventional five-door city car. These ‘X-Line’ and ‘X-Line S’ variants aren’t here to be a full-blown SUV, but incorporate some of our favourite features. The ‘X-Line’ and ‘X-Line S’ have a more rugged look, and variants are powered by a 1.0-litre engine with a five-speed manual or five-speed Automated Manual Transmission and are heavily based on the ‘GT-Line’. There is a simple elegance about both body styles with the Picanto, and a complete absence of fussy extraneous detail, making them more youthful and energetic in appearance.
A dynamic edge When you take a look at the front of this impressive city car, it looks wider and more stable than the previous model thanks to the elongated and slimmer 'tiger-nose' grille, that then stretches outwards to meet the headlamp units. The lower grille/air intake of all models is larger and is now widest at its lower edge. The Kia badge has been relocated from the grille to just above it, and there are concealed windscreen wipers, which help reducing wind noise. Tinted glass comes as standard, and privacy glass features on the rear side windows and tailgate of selected models. You may recognise the C-shaped main light units, as they are retained from the old design, but are more voluminous, with added detail to give a more high-tech image. The ‘X-Line’ and ‘X-Line S’ has a series of rugged design cues with imposing, SUV-style bumpers and silver-coloured skid plates at the front and rear. The sporty ‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT-Line S’ models have larger sports front and rear bumpers with gloss black skid plates, red highlights within the upper grille and side air intakes, along the side sills and in the lower rear bumper, which contains a diffuser section and trim twin exhaust tailpipes.
Android Auto now on the Kia Picanto
Performance The upgraded Picanto is available with two new ‘Smartstream’ petrol engines, each maximising efficiency and lowering CO2 emissions compared to their predecessors. The engine line-up features a 1.0-litre T-GDi engine, producing 99bhp, or a 1.0-litre DPI engine producing 66bhp.
Technology Selected models feature Kia Connected Services, accessed through a new 8-inch 'floating' touchscreen navigation system. The information available to drivers includes live traffic updates, weather reports, speed camera locations and local point-of-interest searches. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also compatible.
Safety Electronic Stability Control and Vehicle Stability Management work together to stabilise the car. Using the anti-lock brake and ESC sensors, it detects when the car is drifting off its intended course and brakes on one side to stabilise the car. All versions also have Hill-start Assist Control and grade ‘2’ and above include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist.
