2021 Kia Picanto price and specs

The 2021 Kia Picanto has landed in Australian showrooms, with the facelifted hatchback range ushering in increased prices and upgraded exterior styling and fresh infotainment features. The Picanto, which was Australia's top-selling micro car for July 2020, has risen in price by between $300 and $800 depending on the variant, but retained its sub-$15,000 entrypoint (before on-road costs).

Kia considering Picanto EV

Kia is looking at making a battery-electric version of its entry-level Picanto micro car, Automotive News Europe reports. If the Picanto EV makes production it would be the third electric Kia, following in the footsteps of the e-Soul and e-Niro crossover. Kia is aiming to have an EV "in almost every main segment", according to Emilio Herrera, chief operating officer of Kia Europe, targeting 40,000 electric sales in Europe next year.

2019 Kia Picanto GT pricing and specs

Kia has revealed its new turbocharged Picanto GT will be priced from $17,990 drive-away, just $500 more than the existing GT-Line variant. That extra outlay brings a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine, making 74kW and 172Nm. That's up from the 62kW and 122Nm you get in the naturally-aspirated 1.25L engine in the regular Picanto. Want more good news? It's mated to a five-speed manual, instead of a four-speed automatic. Huzzah!
