New Kia Picanto

We examined the very first era Kia Picanto in 2005 following its start in 2004 and also have formerly street examined the next era edition in its five-door structure.

The Picanto was developed by Kia’s European style studio primarily based in Germany that is below the path of Peter Schreyer who was powering Audi’s authentic TT and it is accountable for your Picanto’s Tiger nose. The brand new Picanto is constructed in a joint-venture plant with Donghee Automobile Business, in a manufacturing facility in Seosan, a couple of kilometres from Kia’s Hwasung plant in South Korea.

We determined it had been time for you to check the sporty searching 3-door Kia Picanto ‘City’ driven by one.0 litre motor and priced at £10,245 around the street (when examined). The town design went on sale in the united kingdom around the 1st Oct 2012.

There’s a option of two petrol engines, a one.0-litre and one.25-litre; presently there’s not a diesel device.

The three-cylinder one.0-litre device that we examined within the Picanto Metropolis develops 68bhp and 95Nm of torque coupled to some 5-speed guide gearbox.

There’s also a far more potent one.25-litre four-cylinder motor that is provided in 3 guises, all creating 84bhp and 121Nm of torque. In regular type it averages sixty.1mpg. There’s a four-speed automated transmission, which averages fifty three.3mpg, the EcoDynamics design can attain sixty five.7mpg (based on formal figures), with its Intelligent Quit & Go (ISG) motor stop/start system.

Where the idea of a three-cylinder one.0-litre motor might instil fear into some in potential owners, in our opinion that fear is unfounded. It is capable of 0-62 mph in 13.9 seconds, that is respectable around town – with a top pace of 95 mph.
