Kia Motors Europe unveiled the enhanced Kia Picanto at the 85th Salon International de l’Automobile in Geneva last March. Kia’s stylish A-segment city hatchback features a range of dynamic and visual improvements to maintain its competitiveness. The enhanced Kia Picanto boasts redesigned front and rear bumpers to enhance the car’s bold looks, as well as updates to Kia’s hallmark ‘tiger-nose’ grille. Buyers can now choose a new, optional 14-inch alloy wheel design. The inclusion of another optional sport pack makes the upgraded car stand out as one of the best-looking vehicles in the A-segment, in both three- and five-door variants. Inside, the Picanto can be upgraded to the EX model which comes with new chrome accents surrounding the driver’s instrument binnacle and dashboard air vents, and a new cloth upholstery pattern boosts the car’s youthful appeal. At the center of the dashboard, a more modern fascia now surrounds the Picanto’s audio system. The upgraded Picanto has received a series of small modifications to its 1.0-litre MPI (Multi-Point Injection) engine, ensuring the car meets strict Euro 6 emissions standards. The Picanto is among the brand’s best-selling models in Europe, with 51,102 units sold in 2014. The enhanced model is sold with the usual Kia’s unique 7-Year warranty for complete peace of mind.
