Kia Picanto Offers Flair and Performance, Now Starting at P 450,000
A car is said to be an extension of one’s personality on the road. Now, who wouldn’t want to be represented by a car brimming with style, innovation, and practicality?
Right off the bat, Kia Picanto merits a second, longer glance from you and other onlookers because of its clean, flowing lines and distinctive shape. The wide rear stance, air dam blend, and iconic radiator grille then complete an elegant style unique to the Picanto. The 5-seater, 4-door hatchback is definitely the sub-compact car that will fit well with equally dynamic lifestyles.
The harmony in the details of Picanto’s exterior flows well inside. There is comfort in practicality as seats, steering wheel, supervision cluster, and other essential trimmings are made with the user’s enjoyment in mind.
Speedometer, rev counter, and fuel gauge are capsuled in a beautiful and sporty cylindrical housing for a cleaner look. Ergonomics is also a concern that the Picanto addresses with its Power and Tilt steering wheel that lets drivers choose a more convenient and ideal position to suit one’s driving position. Simple yet often overlooked, thumb rests are also ergonomically positioned around the steering wheel to provide optimum grip.
Both driver and passengers can enjoy high quality material and trim used on the seats. Ensuring that your Picanto can go wherever you go, flexible seating and carrying options are also on hand. A 60:40 split rear seat back lets you ride with odd-shaped items while still able to sit three people. For extra space, both rear seats can be folded while an additional luggage space under the tailgate can also be maximized for sizeable loads.
Adding bang to your buck, Kia Picanto’s credentials under the hood is worth noting as well. Variants of 1.0L and 1.2L Kappa MPI engines both deliver power and fuel economy. Safety and stability also underline Picanto’s A-list character. Body and frame strength are engineered to ensure steering stability and rigidity while its up-to-date body shell and structure provide much-needed protection from collision.
For a lifestyle and personality that wants to stand out without doing away with the core essentials, Kia Picanto seem to be an ideal match. Starting at Php 450,000, go ahead and make the Kia Picanto part of who you are.
