While the standard Picanto from Kia looks rather boring with the standard visuals and rather the same features inside the cabin, the GT-Line variant is definitely a show-offer with the new design enhancements and plenty of technology inside the cabin.
The appealing and exquisite urban car, now equipped with sporty features has been recently announced in Australia, and can be had for no less than $17,490. For that, you get plenty of visual characteristics, a new engine – still, not that powerful as the European counterpart – and plenty more.
Speaking of plenty more, Australian customers looking for a daily commuter and a real kicker in traffic, will have the new 2018 Picanto GT-Line with a seven year warranty and roadside assistance, adding as well sever years free of charge servicing.
As we can depict from the couple of photos below, the new Picanto GT-Line wears the same special outfit as any other GT-Line variant from the carmaker`s lineup. First off, it is easily recognizable as a GT-Line edition thanks to the GT-Line badges and dual exhaust tips at the rear end.
There are also other important highlights that make it quite a standout, like contrasting body accents, subtle body kit, LED position lights, daytime running lights and the new 16-inch alloy wheels which increase its sportive attitude.
The cabin also wears the special treatment from the GT-Line, featuring premium seats with red accents, sporty alloy pedals, as well as a comprehensive touch-screen media interface and six-speaker sound system.
Like aforementioned, the Australian counterpart comes with a different engine under the hood, unfortunately not the feisty 1.0-liter turbo three-cylinder with 74 kW, which is found in Europe. However, it does come fancy with the 1.25-liter naturally aspirated flat-four mill, with a promising 62 kW and 122 Nm of torque. The power is sent to the front axle via a four-speed automatic.
Details of the exterior and interior enhancements are found in the couple of photos below. Enjoy!
