Kia Picanto gets standard service plan

Charl Bosch

Having added an automatic gearbox to the top spec Smart soon after its launch two years ago, Kia has upgraded the Picanto’s service plan to include a two year/30 000 km item as standard.

Until now offered solely with a five year/unlimited km warranty, the addition of the service plan applies to 13 models in the local line-up, with no mechanical or spec changes taking place.

As before, the Picanto comes in four trim levels; Start, Street, Style and Smart with the latter offering the option of an electric sunroof. Motivation comes from a choice of two petrol engines; a 1.0-litre three-cylinder developing 49kW/95Nm and a 1.2-litre four-pot that produces 61kW/122Nm. Depending on the spec, both motors can be paired to a five-speed manual or the mentioned four-speed automatic.
