Picanto Pros & Cons

Things We Like in Picanto

The compact dimensions of the Kia Picanto make it a great urban hatchback. While it doesn’t sacrifice on dimensions to make it as small as possible, the dimensions of the Picanto feel absolutely perfect to make it look and feel perfect for daily urban commutes and tackling city traffic on daily usage.

While most of the entry-level hatchbacks sacrifice on interior quality and availability of modern comfort and convenience features, the Kia Picanto is not one such case. This compact city hatchback has some really nice features like a touch screen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, 60:40 split rear seats, automatic climate control, steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls and many more, making it feel premium every bit when on the inside.

Despite its compact dimensions, Kia deserves full marks in making the cabin of the Picanto quite spacious and practical. The presence of practical bits like 60:40 split seats, number of cup holders and storage bins and large glovebox opens up space for storing your small as well as big luggage.

Things We Dont Like in Picanto

The Kia Picanto has been equipped with decently powerful 1.0-litre as well as 1.2-litre petrol engines. However, when it comes to offering fuel economy, they are right at the top of the game or even close to the benchmark.

The overall compact dimensions of the Kia Picanto give it a cute stance. However, the quirky exterior styling of the Picanto might not be to everyone’s taste.

Picanto Overview

Kia has had a presence in the Philippines for some time now. Their bestselling hatchback, the Picanto, has been on sale since 2008. The newest version of the Picanto has now been made available in the country. What’s more, KIA has also brought along the GT spec variant with its red accents and modern looks. The car was launched in January last year and was launched in the country in August.  The Picanto has made a name for itself in other markets with well-appointed interiors and driving dynamics not normally seen in this segment. It has been made available in the country a 1.2L litre engine with either an automatic or a manual. The GT Line spec adds in some niceties on the exterior. Prices for the Picanto start at Php 635000 for the base variant and go up to Php 798000 for the GT Line spec. The Picanto faces off against the Suzuki Swift, Toyota Wigo and Mitsubishi Mirage among the many possibilities in the crowded A segment in the country. The Kia has to be something really special to justify these prices.

KIA Picanto Interior & Features

Moving inside, we find a modern and sophisticated interior that compliments the exterior well. The cabin materials and the cloth wrapping the seats have a nice feel. The cabin is spacious as well. There is 1300 mm of shoulder room at the front and 1280 mm of shoulder space at the rear. The dash has been redesigned to free up more legroom. The seats in the rear are 60:40 split foldable to do the same. The car itself is not that big but for its size, it provides ample room for its passengers. The dashboard layout is simple and elegant. Tall upright air conditioner vents at the two ends with the horizontal trim piece running across the centre of the dash gives it a chic European feel. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather and feels nice to hold. Behind it is a twin-pod instrument cluster with an LCD multi info display in the middle. The centre console has large practical dials for the manual air conditioner. The infotainment is handled by a digital radio that is equipped with Bluetooth, USB and AUX functionality. There is no touchscreen but the radio itself does a good enough job along with the 4 speakers. The cargo space is big enough for a full-sized overnight bag.

Picanto Exterior

Kia has come a long way from where it started. It now employs designers with clients like Audi on their resume and it certainly shows. The car is aimed at the youth and it looks as youthful as ever. We see the same style of youthful touches like the ones on Suzuki Ignis. Square (automatic) headlights go very well with the signature Kia Tiger nose grille. The U shape LED DRLs and the bigger side vents with red accents on the on the GT Line take it one notch higher. The GT Line also gets red accents on the grille that make it look extra sporty. As we move to the side we find that the car has a short sporty nose. The wheels are 13-inch on the Standard and 15-inch alloys on the GT Line. The side profile of the car is very neat with only a red accent on the GT Line. We move to the rear to find C shaped tail lights (LEDs on the GT Line) and a small roof-mounted spoiler along with the now rounded bumpers. While not the most attractive rear end in the segment, it does look very good. The biggest (or smallest in a way) element contributing to the looks of the car is definitely the size of the car. Unlike other similar hatchbacks, the Picanto has managed to not grow in size, while managing to increase the room inside. It is 3595 mm long which is same as before. Overall width is 1595 mm and height is 1495 mm. The whee, however ever has gone up by 15 mm to 2400 mm. The 151 mm of ground clearance also makes for practicality on bad city roads.

KIA Picanto Engine & Fuel Consumption

There is currently only one engine option in hand. It is the 1.2-litre Kappa 4 cylinder engine with dual CVVT and multi-point fuel injection. It is capable of producing 84 PS at 6400 rpm and 124 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. Power is delivered to the front wheels using the 5 speed manual or the 4 speed automatic transmission. The engine is refined and silent and is Euro 4 compliant. The biggest draw, however, has to be the fuel economy which can go up to 24 kmpl depending on the traffic conditions. Engine performance is otherwise good for a car of this size. Despite the GT Line’s sporty packaging, this is no hot hatchback. At higher speeds the car also gets noisy. Handling is good enough for a car of Picanto size, but the steering could use a bit more feel.

Picanto Braking & Safety

The Picanto is well equipped when it comes to safety equipment in its price range. It gets dual airbags, seat belts, ISOFIX, reverse parking sensors, and anti-lock brakes. At this price range we can’t really expect for more.

KIA Picanto Verdict

Overall the Picanto is a good looking small hatchback that gets all the basics amenities. It is economic, well equipped, and modern. However, its price range, especially for the GT Line spec, is about to breach into a segment above. Paying that much for a small Kia will seem ridiculous to most of us. Additionally, there are cars that are better equipped at the same price range. Is the Kia Picanto a better hatchback than before? Definitely yes. Is it the best? Probably not. Even so, if you are dead set to buy the Picanto then you may end up favouring the base over the GT Line spec.

    The Picanto is a great car to own if your travel is limited to the city. The compact dimensions of this car play a major role to take you out of traffic conditions.

    Honestly, this car has been exclusively built for the Philippines and its city roads and in my two years of ownership there hasn't been a single day when this car didn't make me feel comfortable and convenient at the same time. In my opinion, the exclusive built quality of this car makes it the car that has been engineered for Read More

    The KIA Picanto had my attention, ever since I noticed the car in my nearest dealership. On taking my first test-drive of the car, I couldn’t stand myself but book it on the spot.

    Kia cars are a good combination of youthfulness, smooth engine, and great features. I bought the Kia Picanto as my first ever car. It is a hatchback but does not feel so when I drive it. It is not as spacious and comfortable as a sedan by any means (quite obvious), but what you get in the car justifies the Read More

    Robust Evan Feb 20, 2021 for KIA Picanto

    Kia Picanto is the best car in the entry-level compact hatchback. I wanted a small car for my office duties and the Picanto perfectly fit the bill. The 1.2-litre powertrain is extremely fuel efficient and is a boon in these days of rising fuel prices. The interior sound insulation is superb and no outside noise enters the cabin. The car Read More

    I have personally liked the bigger cars from Kia, for the kind of top-notch quality and big car appeal they offer.
