The compact new Kia Picanto has a big personality. With an enhanced new front bumper, signature ‘tiger nose’ grille, fender and bonnet, its powerful new light signature leads into the front air intake elements and gives the Picanto a dramatic image. The optional LED headlights and Daytime Running Lights emphasise modernity and technology, as well as giving the new Picanto a wide, confident stance. A simple and stable rear design highlights the vertical connectivity between the new Picanto’s redesigned rear lights and rear bumper. Its strong and wide rear light signature utilises the volume and core of the new rear bumper and new tailgate to emphasise strength and width.

Picanto baseline comes with 14-inch wheels as standard, and the choice between new 14-inch alloy wheels, 15-inch alloy wheels and new 16-inch wheels is optional. The ‘GT-Line’s presence is strengthened with a confident front end with pronounced sporty elements. The tiger nose grille has been expanded to maximise the look of high performance. The ‘GT-Line’ also features new dedicated 16-inch diamond cut wheels and a sporty ‘GT-Line’ rear diffuser.

The new Kia Picanto is available in a choice of nine vibrant paint finishes and enables the Picanto to stand out with a bold exterior image; new colours: Signal Red, Smoke Blue, Sporty Blue and Adventurous Green.


The enhanced Picanto’s cabin is available in various finishes. The baseline comes with black cloth seats. Optional finishes include Glossy Black, as well as a new range of stylish and sensual interior colour packs: Adventurous Green and Rich Brown. These styles are inspired by nature and enhance the customers’ ability to customise the cabin of their car with the premium comfort of artificial leather seats. The ‘GT-Line’ features the Glossy Black Pack as standard, with the Adventurous Green Pack as optional. The colour packs always feature customised artificial leather seats and door armrests, as well as coloured surrounds around the air vents and gear selector.

The interior of the new Picanto is packed with technology that is both simple and and seamless. Including smartphone integration, charging ports throughout the cabin, and much more.

Picanto Apple CarPlay and Android Auto touchscreen


The new Picanto comes with an 8.0-inch ‘floating’ touchscreen navigation system and a high-resolution 4.2-inch digital display in the driver's instrument cluster as standard. The vehicle’s 8.0-inch touchscreen navigation system features Bluetooth multi-connection, meaning users can pair up to two mobile devices at the same time – one for hands-free phone and media use, and the other for media use only. The system features both Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ as standard.

Kia Connect features include a range of on-board services including live traffic information, weather forecasts, points of interest (POIs), and details of potential on- and off-street parking. Depending on the country, users can remotely send route directions to their car before a journey, check the location of their vehicle, and access vehicle reports and diagnostic notifications.

Meanwhile, Online Voice Recognition lets users search for POIs, addresses, weather updates, or send text messages with voice commands. A new ‘Online Navigation’ routing service uses cloud-based real-time and historical traffic data to predict time-efficient routes more accurately than ever before.

Users can also access the accompanying Kia Connect App, compatible with Android and Apple smartphones, which offers features such as Last Mile Navigation. This helps customers continue navigating to their destination after they have parked and left the car behind. It also helps Kia customers navigate in towns and cities where parking hubs are often some distance away from shops, cafés, and restaurants.

Lastly, the new Picanto comes fully equipped with new over-the-air functionality, which delivers additional comfort for customers and will also save them time, as the navigation and infotainment systems are automatically kept up to date wirelessly – no action required. This is just one example of how Kia is establishing the basis for an enhanced and seamless connected experience by providing its customers the most advanced technology.
