Kia Picanto Range Expanded

main image

Kia has added two more sporty ‘Chili’ models to its popular Picanto range offering extra over the standard model.

Powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine with either a manual or automatic transmission, the Chili is the first model in the range to come with satellite navigation, among other extras.

Those extras include 15-inch alloy wheels, aluminium pedals and black faux leather on the seats. Also included are a seven-inch touch screen and a reversing camera alongside a six speaker audio system.

The exterior hasn’t been left out either. With body coloured side mouldings, re-designed front grille and a twin exhaust tailpipe, the Chili shows its sporty intent on the outside as well as the inside. It is offered in three exterior colours, all with red interior trim.

Kia is aiming to offer a high specification car for a mid range price, able to give owners a high level of equipment whilst keeping running costs low.

As with all cars sold by Kia at the moment, the Picanto Chili comes with a 7-year or 100,000 mile warranty, which is fully transferable between owners should the car be sold. 

The 5-speed manual is priced at £11,495 whilst the automatic comes in at £12,095. Even the automatic engine achieves an average mile per gallon figure of 50.4, whilst the manual returns a remarkable 62.8mpg. 

The Chili comes part of Kia’s ‘Picanto Originals’ range, which is designed to offer customers cars that are a little out of the ordinary whilst still for a fantastic price.
