For only £445 more, you can get a Kia Picanto in the ‘Fuchsia Blush’ color. The pink paint option is available on the 5-door model on grades ‘2’ and ‘3’. But for the less adventurous, Kia is offering the new Picanto ‘White’ on the three-door model. This technologically advanced addition to the Picanto three-door lineup is the replacement for the range-topping ‘Halo’ and ‘Equinox’ models.
The new top-spec ‘White’ rides on a set of five-spoke 15” alloy wheels and has an Engine Start/Stop with Smart Entry System. It also gets Bluetooth and automatic air conditioning. Kia offers reversing sensors as standard. An exterior feature – the black tiger-nose grille – features an unusual red surround.
Meanwhile, the interior gets leather trim steering wheel and steering wheel mounted controls. It also features a ‘Hollywood style’ vanity mirror with a three-stage illumination feature sequence and ambient LED lighting. The Picanto ‘White’ is priced from only £11,745 for the 1.25 84bhp 5-speed manual ISG model. Meanwhile, the 1.25 84bhp 4-speed automatic has a starting price of £12,345. These two models have a Thatcham insurance rating of 11.
