The Picanto GT-Line is the mid-grade in the small car’s Australian lineup, and will be joined later in 2020 by the top-spec GT.

The GT-Line wears an aggressive bodykit and has projector headlights with LED DRLs. For the 2021 model year it also has a new bumper design front and rear, new 16-inch alloy wheels.

On the inside it features a new 8.0-inch multimedia touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as updated interior trims and soft-touch surfaces for the door trim and console box.

The GT-Line carries the same engine as the base S, a 1.25-litre four-cylinder petrol producing 62kW/122Nm. Official/combined fuel consumption figures are 5.0L/100km for the five-speed manual and 5.8L/100km for the four-speed automatic. On our test of the GT-Line automatic, we saw a real-world figure of 7.5L/100km.

The Picanto has a small 35-litre fuel tank, and is able to consume base-grade 91RON unleaded petrol.

The Picanto is covered by Kia’s seven year/unlimited kilometre warranty promise. Servicing is required once every 12 months or 15,000km and is covered by a fixed price scheme. Prices over the seven years work out to a yearly average service cost of $389.42.

$17,740
