Kia Picanto Sport 2024 review: snapshot

The base-model Kia Picanto Sport is available in either four-speed automatic or five-speed manual guise, and is one of Australia's most affordable brand new vehicles.

The manual costs from $17,890 while the automatic bumps it slightly to $19,490, both before on-road costs.

Included are 14-inch alloy wheels, a new 4.2-inch digital instrument panel, an 8.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, cloth seats with a leatherbound steering wheel and shifter, as well as a new-look exterior design.

The full safety suite is also standard, while the Picanto range continues to be powered by a 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine producing 62kW/122Nm.

As always, Kia offers its seven-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty across its entire range, with seven years of roadside assist and seven years of capped-price servicing.
