Naza Kia Malaysia, the official distributor of Kia vehicles, has announced that the the Kia Picanto GT-Line is now available in Malaysia. This range-topping variant of its best-selling compact car is priced from RM57,888 (on-the-road without insurance), and comes with five years warranty with unlimited mileage (terms & conditions apply).
The Picanto GT-Line gets new colour accents on the full body kit and Kia’s signature ‘tiger nose’ grille for a more aggressive stance. At the rear sits sporty-looking dual exhaust pipes. Additional kit includes 16″ alloy wheels and pedals, LED daytime running lights and fog lamps, shark-fin antenna, and keyless entry. Further, the 7″ floating touchscreen has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality for full smartphone integration. The Picanto GT-Line is also equipped with a sporty D-cut steering wheel, a rear-view parking camera, wireless smartphone charger and USB port. For maximum convenience, the GT-Line variant also includes Full Auto Temperature Control (FATC) which automatically maintains the set cabin temperature for a more comfortable drive.
“Following the successful launch of the Kia Picanto 1.2 EX model last year, Naza Kia Malaysia is thrilled to introduce a new sporty variant of the innovative A-segment car which has stolen the hearts of Malaysian road users. We are confident the Kia Picanto GT-Line will receive no less attention on the road with its extra stylish appeal and nimble performance,” said Dato’ Samson Anand George, Group CEO, Automotive Group, Naza Corporation Holdings Sdn Bhd.
The Picanto is equipped with top-notch safety features such as an Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) body construction and six airbags (dual front, side and curtain airbags) as standard. Active safety features like Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), are also included.
On top of that, the Picanto GT-Line comes with Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) which prevents rolling back while on a slope when the brakes are released.
The Picanto boasts class-leading cabin space, with more leg- and head-room than many other A-segment rivals. Boot capacity is 255 litres (VDA) – the most of any car in its class – with 60:40 split-folding rear seats that fold flat to increase cargo space to 1,010 litres.
The Picanto GT-Line is available in Titanium Silver, Clear White and an exclusive Aurora Black Pearl.
