New look Picanto

The Kia Picanto is already one of our best-selling models, thanks to its eye-catching style, class-leading practicality and fun-to-drive performance. The new 2020 Picanto line-up builds on that success, featuring a range of distinctive design updates. On the outside you’ll notice the restyled LED lights, the revised “Tiger Nose” radiator grille, a choice of 10 paint finishes and two new alloy wheel designs, coming in 14-inch or 16-inch sizes.

The sporty GT-Line SUV-inspired X-Line now looks even better with new front and rear bumpers, a wider front air intake, gloss black trim and new LED fog lamps. The SUV-inspired X-Line model reinforces its rugged looks, coming with new protective skid plates and metal-effect trim.

Interior style

Inside the 2020 Picanto, navigation and infotainment are improved with a bigger, eight-inch ‘floating’ touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You’ll now be able to pair two devices at the same time – one via Bluetooth and one through a USB port.

The Picanto is also more customisable than ever with cloth or faux-leather seat upholstery and a range of contemporary interior colour packs. Featuring contrasting seat stitching, seat bolsters and dashboard trim, choose your style from four colour combinations with distinctive lime, orange, red and green highlights.

'Smartstream’ technology and a new automatic option

The new Picanto 2020 now feature ‘Smartstream’ petrol engine units that have been updated with new engine management, fuel injection and variable valve timing systems. The result is maximum efficiency and lower CO2 emissions as well as an improved driving performance.

There’s a choice of three power units – the 66bhp naturally aspirated 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit, 1.2-litre four-cylinder, with an output of 83bhp and the top of the range turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit, producing 99bhp.

All three engines come with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard and the option of Kia’s new five-speed automatic gearbox. This new transmission combines the convenience of an automatic without sacrificing fuel efficiency.

Upgraded Picanto driver assistance

The upgraded 2020 Picanto now comes with a host of connectivity, driver assistance and safety features, often reserved for larger models. ‘Phase II’ UVO Connect telematics give owners an enhanced user experience, onboard and via Kia’s UVO smartphone app.

The new Picanto is among the safest cars in its class too, now with extra driver assistance technology. Depending on the model specification, upgrades include forward collision avoidance assist, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, lane-keeping assist, a driver attention warning system and lane following assist.

Lane following assist is an innovative assistance system that uses a front-facing camera and sensors to monitor road markings. The car can automatically control the steering and throttle on the move to ensure it stays centrally placed in the lane.

Drivers will also benefit from Emergency Stop Signal assistance. If the driver has to brake suddenly, the hazard warning lights automatically flash to alert the car behind.

The new Picanto 2020 will be on sale in the autumn at your local Brayley Kia dealer, with prices and exact specifications to be confirmed. And like every new Kia, the 2020 Picanto comes with the unique Kia 7-Year, 100,000-mile warranty as standard.
