Picanto Line-Up Expands with the Arrival of the X-Line Edition

  • Kia’s smallest car in the UK gains X-Line variant
  • On sale 9 January 2018; order books open now at Northwood Kia
  • Prices start at £12,595

Following its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA), the latest addition to the Picanto range, the All-New Picanto X-Line goes on sale on 9 January 2018 at Northwood Kia. The X-Line variant further broadens the appeal of Kia’s city car, with styling that draws inspiration from the company’s SUV model lines, including the Stonic, Sportage and Sorento.

Prices start at £12,595 for the X-Line equipped with the 1.25-litre petrol engine and five-speed manual gearbox. A four-speed automatic transmission is also available for an additional £650.

Graham Vanassche, Dealer Principle at Northwood Kia said: “Available in an array of quirky colours, and packed with state-of-the-art technology, the Picanto X-Line is the ultimate stylish city car. We look forward to welcoming customers on the Island into the dealership for a test drive.” 

The X-Line variant introduces a series of rugged new design cues and is longer, wider and taller than conventional city cars with increased ground clearance. It makes no pretence at being a full-blown SUV – power is transmitted through the front wheels only – but has a more rugged look which will widen the audience of the all-new Picanto in a market in which the crossover is king.

Unique to the X-Line model, the grille and fog lamp surrounds are finished with lime green highlights, while black cladding around the side sills and wheel arches enhances the visual effect of the raised ground clearance. The exterior door handles are finished in body colour and privacy glass is fitted to the rear windows and tailgate. Completing the more muscular look are twin exhaust outlets, 16-inch alloy wheels, a shark-fin antenna and projection headlights with LED daytime running lights and fog lamps.

The splashes of colour are carried over to the interior with lime green stitching for the flat-bottomed steering wheel, gear lever gaiter and armrests. The large 7.0-inch ‘floating’ touchscreen features DAB radio, as well as Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for full smartphone integration.
