The Picanto is the first small Kia to feature a Kia Connected Services package powered by TomTom™ and features both Android and Apple smartphone integration as standard, with a 7" Touchscreen available in the grade ‘3’ and ‘GT-Line S’ models. Android Auto™ gives access to Google maps navigation and Google Play music, while Apple CarPlay™ links to pre-loaded maps, music, podcasts, texts and messages and audio books, all utilising Siri voice control.

“Clever and well-judged technology isn’t reserved for expensive models”

Carbuyer Editor, Stuart Milne said, “Proving once and for all that clever and well-judged technology isn’t reserved for expensive models, the Kia Picanto is startlingly easy to use. Our judges were bowled over by the superb responsiveness offered by the touchscreen, while we found the organisation and positioning of the menus shames cars costing three times as much.”

Paul Philpott, President and Chief Executive of Kia Motors (UK) Limited commented: ‘We are delighted the Picanto’s easy to use technology has been recognised and received such high praise from the judges. Now in its third-generation, the new Kia Picanto brings a more youthful and energetic character to the A-segment. Our customers love the high level of equipment available for the money.”
