    KIA PICANTO 1.2 Litre 2012

    Kia offers the Picanto with the 1.2-litre 4 cylinder KAPPA engine that delivers a useful 87PS i.e. 86bhp in old money and 121 Nm of torque.

    Picanto in “Alice blue”   A conventional 4 speed automatic transmission gets the power to the front wheels. The claimed fuel economy figure of 18.7 kms to the litre or 5.4 ltrs/100km, seems achievable. For drivers needing a little more involvement, a 5 speed manual transmission is available on the cheapest trim level, the LX.   For a compact, the insides of the Picanto are welcoming in terms of space, seating comfort and general ergonomics. A sporty 2 spoke steering wheel and faux aluminium accents keep things interesting in the otherwise conventional interiors. Expect it to accommodate 4 average sized adults in relative comfort, but a fifth person would be a squeeze. The 60:40 folding seats complement the minimal boot capacity. The plastics are soft to touch and tightly put together but only a road test would reveal the squeaks and rattles and general fit and finish concerns.

    Picanto’s aggressive front end   The fully loaded EX model is a festival of features. It comes with a CD player with mp3 capability, USB port, aux input, fog lamps, alloy wheels, keyless entry system,  leather wrapped steering wheel and shift lever, Bluetooth, day time running lights, escort and welcome lamp, electric folding mirrors, airbag, ABS and sunroof. Also Kia promises a host of complex safety features not found on small cars such as Hill Start Assist Control (HAC),  Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) etc.   Prices for the LX start at Dhs. 36500, while the mid range EX model and full options EX, comes in at Dhs. 38,500 and Dhs. 43,000 respectively.

    Nissan Micra???   Kia is likely to find buyers amongst young women mostly college going, who will appreciate the compact dimensions for city trotting, creature comforts and a dash of style. Prospective Chevrolet Spark and Daihatsu Sirion buyers should entertain their thoughts, with this exciting new car before making a purchase.   We look forward to putting this little city slicker through some mountain road and some highway and will get our impressions to you soon.
