Since the debut in 2011, it has shown that great things can come in small packages! The Kia Picanto LS expands on this by adding another model to the range!

The Kia Picanto LS is aimed at increasing the consumer’s value for money, without compromising on any of its performance or features.

“The A-segment of the market is one of the most hotly contested segments in South Africa,”

says Gary Scott, Director of Sales for KIA Motors South Africa.

“Where the desire for affordable personal mobility overrides many other considerations. With the Picanto LS, customers now have access to a globally renowned vehicle without having to make any sacrifices in respect of award-winning design or exceptional quality.”

The Picanto features most of the same features as the LX model, including:

  • Air-conditioning
  • Tilt-adjustable steering
  • A trip computer
  • Height adjustable head rests
  • 60:40 split rear folding seats
  • A convenient luggage floor box
  • Two front speakers with AUX/USB connection

The KIA Picanto LS shares the same five-speed manual transmission as the Picanto LX, capable of producing 51 kW of power and 94 Nm or torque.

Available in 10 exciting colours, the new Picanto 1.0 LS retails for only R119 995, which includes KIA’s standard five-year/ 150 000km warranty and three years of unlimited roadside assistance. It slots in below the Picanto 1.0 LX (from R141 995) and the range-topping 1.2 EX (from R156 995).

A two-year/ 45 000km optional service plan is also available across the range.
