Kia Picanto City goes on sale in the UK

Article by Christian A., on October 2, 2012

Kia’s new three-door Picanto ‘City, with a price tag of £10,245, will go on sale in the UK on October 1. This is the latest model to be added to the ‘Originals’ collection. This attractive new ‘Original’ has plenty of practical but stylish features that are not typically found in the cars under this price range, guaranteeing practicality with a dash of glamour.

The ‘Originals’ models come from the idea of a fashion collection, which gets frequent updates with unique styles and personalities. The Picanto ‘City’ has an exciting exterior appearance, with its signature red grille, set of 14” alloy wheels, chrome door handles, heated door mirrors and front fog lights. Metallic paint is a standard feature and this model is offered in Blaze Red or Bright Silver, so it can arrive in the city with style.

Its high specification includes reversing sensors, which allows for easy and convenient parking in tight city center spaces. The interior features premium cloth upholstery, sufficient storage for personal items and a leather trimmed steering wheel with audio controls. The features that will only be available in the ‘City’ include ambient LED lighting and a “Hollywood” style vanity mirror with three-stage illumination sequence.

Through Bluetooth connectivity, the driver can easily make hands-free calls via voice recognition and stream music. The ‘City’ is powered by the low-emitting three-cylinder Kappa 1.0 MPI engine, with a five-speed manual gearbox. It delivers only 99g/km of CO2 and offers 67.3 mpg on the combined cycle, which makes it exempted from road tax and the London congestion charge.

For safety, it has the following: Electronic Stability Control, Vehicle Stability Management and Hill Assist Control. ‘City’ is equipped with the Cornering Brake Control, the first in the Picanto range to be installed with one. The ‘City’ has six airbags and five three-point seatbelts all around, which makes it one of the few 5-seaters in its class.
