Kia Picanto Australia

The Kia Picanto is the smallest car in the Kia line-up, with the five-door hatch sitting below the Rio.

Currently the Picanto can be had from $14,190 for Picanto S to $17,990 for Picanto GT (TURBO).

First arriving in 2016, it was replaced by a new generation model shorty after in 2017. It’s been reasonably successful since its 2016, challenging the fleet-friendly Mitsubishi Mirage and style-focussed Fiat 500.

Since its introduction, and subsequent 2017 facelift, the Picanto has outlived the Suzuki Celerio, Nissan Micra and Holden Spark. It can owe much of that success to key value and safety offerings like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as AEB becoming standard across the range.

A more style-oriented GT-Line variant and a base manual variant were added in May 2018.

This vehicle is also known as the Kia Morning, Kia EuroStar, Naza Suria, Naza Picanto.
