All-new sporty Picanto ticks the box with customers at Jennings Kia

Customers of Jennings Kia, part of the multi-award winning Jennings Motor Group, have been quick off the mark to get their hands on the all-new stylish, sporty and sophisticated Picanto city car.

The all-new Picanto, which made its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show in March, has been further boosting new sales at the group’s Stockton and Washington-based showrooms where customers have already taken delivery of their new motors within the first two weeks of the official launch.

Packed with advanced connectivity and driver assistance features, the third generation all-new Picanto is priced from £9,450 (on the road).

Steven Flack, franchise manager at Jennings Kia in Stockton, said; “We are really excited to be able to offer the brand-new third generation Kia Picanto to our customers across Teesside and Wearside.

“Customers love the new technology, as well as a more practical and stylish interior being on offer.  We are looking forward to welcoming even more motorists to the dealerships for them to see and test drive the latest model for themselves.

“Already we have seen an increase in sales, which is extremely encouraging, and we expect this to remain as customers continue to take advantage of another competitively-priced yet high quality product available in the popular Kia range.”

Ranked as Kia’s sportiest city car to date, the all-new Picanto is technologically advanced, more stylish and more refined than its predecessors.

The Kia Picanto offers nine versions, based on two engines, two transmissions and five trim lines – badged ‘1’, ‘2’, ‘3’, ‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT-Line S’.

‘GT-Line’ and ‘GT-Line S’ bring an unprecedented level of sportiness to the Picanto range, with bespoke exterior and interior styling and exclusive trim features.

The car is confidently more stylish, spacious, sportier and modern than the outgoing version.  Based on an all-new platform featuring twice as much high-strength steel as the previous Picanto, the all-new model offers increased safety.

An array of specification is available, including air conditioning, electric rear windows, electric heated door mirrors, Bluetooth with music streaming, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, gear lever and driver’s seat height adjustment. Kia Connected Services fitted are powered by TomTom and owners of the car can access Android Auto and Apple CarPlay via apps pre-loaded onto a smartphone.

As with all Kia models, the Picanto comes with the best warranty in the business – a seven year/100,000-mile declaration of faith in the reliability and quality of the car, covering all labour and parts except those subject to normal wear and tear.  The warranty is available from Jennings Kia, transferable if the car is sold before the time/mileage limit expires.

The Jennings Kia dealerships also provide a range of aftersales facilities, including service, MOT and parts.
