Five trim levels including sporty new ‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT-Line S’

The Picanto may be the entry-level model to the world of Kia, but that does not mean it is a poor relation. Depending on model, it offers many of the luxuries found in larger Kias, and is available with the latest connectivity features and advanced driver assistance systems. And, for the first time, there are sporty versions in the ‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT-Line S’.

Even the entry-level grade ‘1’ model features electric front windows, remote locking with a folding key, tinted windows, a radio with AUX and USB ports, a tilt-adjustable steering column, automatic headlight control, stability control (ESC), stability management (VSM), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), 60:40 split folding rear seats and six airbags. Options include Automatic Emergency Braking.

From grade ‘2’, air conditioning, electric rear windows, electric heated door mirrors, Bluetooth with music streaming, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear-lever become standard. There is a four-speaker rather than a two-speaker audio system, high-gloss black centre fascia trim, rear disc brakes instead of drum brakes, body-coloured door handles and side mirror housings, a chromed grille surround and 14-inch alloy wheels in place of steel rims.

Grade ‘3’ adds Automatic Emergency Braking as standard, 15-inch alloy wheels, a supervision instrument cluster, front fog lights, electric folding mirrors with LED indicators, a floor-mounted sliding centre armrest, automatic air conditioning, cruise control with a speed limiter, a 7-inch 'floating' central display unit with satellite navigation and full connectivity, a digital radio as part of a six-speaker audio system, a rear parking camera and sensors, front fog lights and chromed exterior door handles.

Distinguishing features on the ‘GT-Line’ model are 16-inch alloy wheels, Autonomous Emergency Braking, sports front and rear bumpers and side sills, a dual exhaust, black and red faux leather seats, a supervision instrument cluster, electric folding mirrors with LED indicators, satin chrome exterior door handles, privacy glass on the rear windows and tailgate, projection headlamp units, LED daytime running lamps and rear lights, a chrome beltline strip and aluminium pedals with non-slip rubber inserts.

To this, ‘GT-Line S’ adds a wireless phone charger, a sunroof, heated seats and steering wheel, a smart key and push-button engine start/stop, a 7-inch central display unit with satellite navigation and connected services, DAB radio, rear parking camera and sensors, a dual-height boot floor, luggage net and hooks and a driver's-side illuminated vanity mirror.

Connectivity and advanced driver aids

The 7-inch 'floating' touchscreen in ‘GT-Line S’ and grade ‘3’ gives access to a full suite of connectivity functions, including Android Auto® and Apple CarPlay®. Once paired with a smartphone, occupants can play music, send and receive text messages and make phone calls using voice commands. The full-colour display can also supply real-time traffic information and weather reports, local point of interest information and speed camera locations through Kia Connected Services powered by TomTom®. The system includes full satellite navigation and is linked to a reversing camera with dynamic guidelines to help the driver follow the perfect parking course.

Autonomous Emergency Braking is standard from grade ‘3’ and optional on grades ‘1’ and ‘2’. Using a combination of camera and radar, it provides full braking between 5mph and 50mph and partial braking with a driver alert at up to 112mph. As a result, many potential collisions – with both vehicles and pedestrians – can be avoided, while the severity of others may be considerably reduced.
