Kia Picanto City
(Tuesday 2 October 2012)
The latest version of the Kia Picanto, named City, has just gone on sale priced at £10,245.
The City is one of the short-lived and quickly-replaced Originals models, an idea inspired by the fashion industry and first used by Kia in the Soul range.
Standard equipment on the City includes metallic Blaze Red or Bright Silver paint, 14" alloy wheels, a red grille, chrome doorhandles, heated door mirrors and front foglights.
Inside, there's Bluetooth connectivity, premium cloth upholstery, ambient LED lighting, a leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio controls and three-stage illumination for the vanity mirror.
More seriously, this is also the first Picanto to be fitted with Cornering Brake Control, and like other models in the range its 99g/km CO2 rating means that it's exempt from Vehicle Excise Duty and the London congestion charge.
