Kia is taking the cut-price Picanto city car upmarket.
The South Korean marque is making the former Picanto Australian Open special edition a permanent member of the team.
Priced at $17,490 drive away the GT-Line is slightly more expensive than the $16,777 driveaway AO edition for which it shares the same features. The standard Kia Picanto S manual is priced from $14,190 before on-road costs.
The GT-Line rides on 16-inch alloy wheels and also scores GT-Line badging, red accented seats, alloy sports pedals, six speaker sound system, daytime running lights and LED taillights. A GT-Line pack adds contrasting body accents, dual exhaust tips and body kit.
Power comes from the same 1.25-litre four-cylinder petrol unit as the Picanto S that makes 62kW and 122Nm and is matched exclusively to a four-speed automatic transmission.
The GT-Line is available in four colours: black, red and silver which cost an additional $520, or white which is standard.
All Kias are covered by a seven-year/unlimited kilometre warranty with seven years roadside assistance and capped price servicing.
