Kia Picanto 1.25 3, Overall Winner (>£11,000)
Now entering its third generation, the all-new Kia Picanto brings a youthful and energetic character to the A-segment. Just as compact as its predecessor, it now makes an even more assertive impression on the road and delivers a remarkable roominess, functionality and comfort inside. Add in dynamic performance and agile maneuvers, a host of advanced infotainment and safety technologies, and stylish personalisation options to the mix, and the road ahead becomes your very own playground on every journey.
Conceived as a compact A-segment model by Kia's design centres in Korea and Germany, the updated exterior of this latest Kia Picanto is set to steal the limelight with a youthful and energetic design reflected in its stylish body curves, subtle sculpting and strikingly vibrant colour palette. All sure to catch the eye and win over the heart. Its extended wheelbase pushes the wheels further out into each corner for an even more confident appearance and stance – accentuated still further by Projection Headlamps and signature LED Daytime Running Lights featuring LED turn indicators.
Perhaps most instantly noticeable is the sheer space on offer inside such a compact car - thanks to smarter packaging efficiency than ever before giving you more driver, passenger and cargo space than other rivals in the segment. This roominess and functionality is complemented by comfy design details throughout, like the front first-in-segment center-console armrest with console storage. The sense of spaciousness is underlined by clean lines along the stylish dashboard, which groups the high tech of the driving, entertainment and climate elements with logical ingenuity. For a thoroughly contemporary feel. Now you can make your Picanto truly your own too, with the widest-ever range of colours for trim and upholstery to choose from.
At the heart of the cabin is a new 'floating' 7" LCD touchscreen infotainment system, always keeping you one step ahead when it comes to navigation, real-time updates and more. Plus with the voice control of Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, you can keep your hands on the wheel and eyes on the road at all times. There’s even a Rear Park Sensor featuring a Rear View Camera with Dynamic Guidelines for effortless reverse manoeuvering. The all-new Picanto also frees you from cables while you top up your phone on the road - simply by placing your compatible mobile device on the Wireless Phone Charger. Other advanced technologies dedicated to looking out for your safety include the Auto Emergency Braking System, detecting potential collisions ahead earlier in advance and applying the brakes accordingly.
