    The GT will be R260K.

    Get yourself a used Mercedes for that price. Madness to buy a Kia for 250k.

    And put away a lot of money for when something fails.

    Still madness for a Picanto, when you consider that the current Fiesta ST launched for less. That means in 2 years time we'll be seeing R300k+ Picantos. These guys are having a laugh...

    For 250k not much will fail. Just take it for a full DEKRA which is very cheap and a major service and you are all set for the next 10 years. Check oil, water, fluids, etc regularly and you're all good.

    Does this Picanto fall in the same class the the Etios?

    Coming Q3.

    Update: New Kia Picanto Coming to SA in Q3

    Kia has revealed its all-new Picanto city car at the Geneva Motor Show and it will go on sale in South Africa in the third quarter of 2017.

    The Kia Picanto is one of the brand's more popular cars and it's now in its third generation. Kia has an interesting strategy of building design studios outside of Korea and the result is that the Picanto brings a youthful, European-style to the A-segment.

    A new turbocharged 1.0-litre T-GDI engine with 74 kW and 172 Nm of torque will be the headlining act in the new Picanto. This engine will be paired to a 5-speed manual transmission and acceleration from zero to 100 kph will take 10.1 seconds with a top speed of 180 kph.

    A 49kW 1.0-litre engine will also be offered alongside a 62 kW 1.2-litre petrol engine. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard for these engines while a 4-speed automatic will be offered on the 1.2-litre derivative.

    Kia SA has confirmed the new Picanto for our market and it is expected to arrive in the third quarter of 2017.

    Only launching UK in May. Wait at least 3 months after that for local availability + price.
