After introducing two of its vehicles in the Pakistani market, Kia Lucky Motors is all set to launch Kia Picanto for its customers.

The company has so far introduced ‘MPV Grand Carnival’ and ‘Sportage’ in the country.

It is pertinent to mention that Kia had initially planned to open the booking for Picanto in August. However, owing to unknown reasons, it was delayed.

According to Pakwheels, the booking will open from next week and the deliveries will be made from October onwards.

KIA Picanto is an entry-level 5-door hatchback powered by 1,000cc engine displacement mated with a 4-speed automatic gearbox. Picanto shares platform with Hyundai i10 and as far as its economy figures are concerned, NEDC rates it up to 23 km/liter. The hatchback has a wheelbase of 2400mm which provides optimum control over the car.

Picanto was first introduced in 2004 which continued till 2011 before the 2nd generation model came into the market. The 2nd generation remained in production till 2017 after which the company launched the 3rd generation of Picanto at Geneva Motor Show 2017 and is currently being produced around the globe.

The hatchback comes in 1.0-liter engine mated with a 5-speed manual transmission and a 1.2-liter engine which is offered under the optional automatic transmission. It is worthy to mention that KIA Lucky Motors is planning to introduce the 2nd generation 1.0-litre engine model in Pakistan. So, once again, the country will get an older version of a new car; this time by a new player in the auto sector.

The 2nd generation KIA Picanto displayed has a signature compact tiger-nose radiator grille at the front and comes with 14” alloy rims. The hatchback also featured power steering, power windows (front), entertainment system and analog climate control.

  1. It’s too much expensive as it’s MT worth RS.1,899,000 and AT worth Rs. 1,999,000 , I think Honda City is much better than in this price you can get 2016-2017 model in same price with 1.3 IVTEC engine , and many other options in Toyota or like others , so it’s 👎👎👎 KIA can’t compete automobile indusry in Pakistan untill reduce it’s vehicle prices.

  2. Kia picanto price must be around1,400,000rs not more. It’s very lite care not good safety , and file consecption is 19km\ltr in actual on road is more less. So think 1st before book or buy.

  3. I think so, it was better to introduce latest third generation. Price is really very high, which is required to be reduced, otherwise ?

  4. KIA has introduced 2nd generation car whereas this is oboslute & 3rd generation c as rs are being manufactured across globe.Again extortion of money with old generation car.

  5. bohat mehngi hai yeh car is say acha hai kay city 2018 model lay li jaye itnay paisoo may woh mil jati hai awam k liyeh asani karni chahyeh ap log or mehndi kartay ja rahay hai kia waloo kuch or companiyo say behtar gariya laooo or kuch kam price may laooo ta kay ap ki gari ki sale pakistan may barh sakay

  6. Our family was expecting that auto price of picanto would be around 1.5M.
    Nw its really shocking. We were thinking to book around 20 x cars but nw aftr revealing its price of 2M nw we have decided to purchase Honda City 2017/2018 or purchase Vitz.
    Investing on picanto is totally wastage of money.

  7. The price should have max been Rs 1.2 Million. It’s not worth than this.

    I will prefer Honda city rather than this car or used Toyota
