Building on the youthful and energetic character of the newest Picanto, the all-new Picanto X-Line variant has been infused with crossover-inspired design elements that give it a bold and rugged assertiveness that is unique in its class. The interior, with its surprising roominess and undeniable comfort, also triggers the wow effect with the same confident styling as the exterior. All this is complemented by impressive performance credentials and a 1.0-litre T-GDI engine that makes it the most powerful Picanto we’ve ever produced. It is a true all-rounder with fun and enjoyment right at its heart.
EXTERIOR DESIGN: SUV-INSPIRED STYLING IN AN A-SEGMENT PACKAGE
Making a bold statement from all angles, the design of the all-new Picanto X-Line features a number of sophisticated details that emanate the same go-anywhere confidence and power as Kia’s crossover and SUV models in the Kia line-up. One example here are the more imposing, SUV-style cross bumpers with metal-look diffusor inserts at the front and rear, for a more assertive presence on the road. Black cladding around the wheel arches also enhances the visual effect of the raised ground clearance. Up front, the X-Line variant also incorporates Kia’s signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille and – unique to the X-Line model – the grille and fog lamp surrounds are finished with lime green highlights (silver highlights are also available).
ENHANCED CABIN: IMPRESSIVE SPACIOUSNESS AND INSPIRED STYLING
Just like the latest Kia Picanto, the all-new X-Line variant also boasts class-leading cabin space, with more legroom and headroom than all other rivals in the A-segment. And at 255 litres, the trunk capacity is also larger than any car in its class – coupled with 60:40 split-folding rear seats that provide impressive versatility and a considerable cargo capacity of up to 1,010 litres. The all-new Picanto X-Line also scores full marks inside for bold styling, with a rugged look through and through highlighted by contrast colour packs. The dynamic feel of the interior is also owed to a series of sporty features, such as the D-cut steering wheel.
INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES: KEEPING YOU SAFE AND CONNECTED
The all-new Picanto X-Line is packed with safety features and intelligent technologies that make it the safest A-segment car Kia has ever made. In addition to an Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) body construction, it is also equipped with Kia’s DRiVE WISE technologies (1) including Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) (2), for example, which monitors the road ahead and automatically warns the driver and (if necessary) apply the brakes if it detects a potential collision, in an effort to prevent or reduce the impact. The X-Line variant also boasts a large 7.0-inch ‘floating’ touchscreen HMI for navigation with 3D maps, as well as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for full smartphone integration (3). While a rear-view parking camera with dynamic guidelines and wireless smartphone charger (4) maximise comfort and convenience on the road.
