2017 Kia Picanto For Australia

2017 Kia Picanto For AustraliaSpeaking at the local launch of the new Kia Picanto in Noosa yesterday, Kia Australia’s chief operating officer, Damien Meredith said: “The current Picanto was a toe in the water for us in a segment which was, to be honest, struggling. “We believed there was life in the segment for the right car and the fact that what was an ageing model is now the most popular in the segment proved that to be true.

Inside, the extra wheelbase has been supported by a redesign of the dashboard to create more cabin space for the occupants. The new interior design is like the exterior, similar to the old model but sharper, with more focus on the details and featuring more modern equipment.

Exterior touches include 14-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers, heated power-folding rearview mirrors, and full body-coloured mirrors, door handles, and bumpers for an integrated appearance.

Compared to the outgoing model boot space grows by 55 litres to 255 in total with the seats up, or an even larger 1010 litres with the seats folded. External dimensions stay the same, at 3595mm long, 1595mm wide, but the wheelbase grows by 15mm to 2400mm to the benefit of interior space.
