    Default 2017 Kia Picanto

    I must say I like the funky looks. Stands out a notch in this "budget" segment.

    "Kia Motors has released images of the all-new Kia Picanto, the third-generation of one of Kia's global best-selling cars.

    Created by Kia's design centres in Namyang, Korea and Frankfurt, Germany, the new Picanto brings youthful and energetic character to the A-segment. The all-new model - revealed in Kia's sports-inspired '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 colour palette is more vibrant than ever, with a range of bold paint colours designed to make the car stand out.

    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.

    Buyers of the all-new Kia Picanto will enjoy smarter packaging efficiency than ever before, with more cabin and cargo space than rivals in the segment. In spite of its extended wheelbase, the Picanto retains its characteristically compact dimensions. With a shorter front overhang and longer rear overhang, the all-new model is the same length (3,595 mm) as the car it replaces.

    Kia will reveal the all-new Kia Picanto in public for the first time at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show, and will go on sale in the Spring of 2017."

    Kia releases some official images of the new Picanto

    Kia released some teaser images of the next-generation Picanto just a few weeks ago with a scheduled reveal at the Geneva Motorshow this March. Now, Kia has decided to release official images of the Picanto in its GT-Line trim.

    Although, this is the new generation Picanto, it shares a lot of design cues with the current model. It still retains those compact dimensions but the overall appearance is quite aggressive and even more-so with this trim.

    This particular model has a widened wheelbase and can be specced in a variation of 11 different colours. The interior also adopts a similar design to the current model, however the floating infotainment screen has been included in this trim.

    Kia has not revealed any technical specifications for the new model. All of this will be revealed in March at its official reveal.

    Kia SA has confirmed the new Picanto for our market, but at this point couldn't give an exact arrival date other than "before the end of 2017".

    Or more. The current 1.2 ex manual was about R180 000 in 2016. Madness.

    Sounds good...

    New Kia Picanto boasts peppy 1,0-litre turbo-triple


    At the start of the year, Kia released the first official images of its new, third-generation Picanto. And now the Korean automaker has revealed that the city car will be available in some markets with a new 1,0-litre turbocharged engine.

    The turbo-triple – which has yet to be confirmed for South Africa – will be one of three petrol engines on offer. The 1,0-litre and 1,25-litre naturally aspirated multi-point injection engines have been carried over from the outgoing range, although Kia says they have benefitted from “a range of enhancements to improve efficiency and driveability”.

    The new 1,0-litre T-GDI unit makes 74 kW and 172 N.m, the highest power and torque outputs ever offered in Kia’s A-segment model. The engine features a single-scroll turbocharger as well as an integrated exhaust manifold, and a high-pressure (200 bar) fuel supply.

    The brand has yet to reveal performance or economy figures for this new turbocharged mill.

    The new Kia Picanto will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March, and is expected to go on sale in South Africa in the third quarter of 2017.
