New Kia Picanto Quantum
Seoul - Kia's popular city-car Picanto range has been widened with a new
highly-specified special edition model - the Picanto Quantum. Forming
part of Kia's ‘Originals' range - a line-up of models with distinct
personalities that are changed at regular intervals along the lines of a
fashion collection - the Quantum is uniquely available in 3-door guise
but with the choice of a manual or automatic transmission.
Powered by a 1.25-litre petrol engine, developing 84bhp at 6,000rpm and
120Nm torque at 4,000rpm, the Picanto Quantum is finished in Titanium
Silver metallic paintwork with premium black cloth interior upholstery
and sits alongside the existing Picanto ‘White' in the ‘Originals'
Standard equipment includes 15-inch
five-round-spoke alloy wheels, automatic air conditioning, a
smart key entry system with engine start/stop button, electric
sliding and tilting sunroof, electrically folding, adjustable
and heated door mirrors with LED indicator lights, front
foglights, a six-speaker audio system, body-coloured side sill
mouldings and automatic headlight control with ‘see-you-home'
and ‘welcome' lighting.
The Picanto Quantum also adds
to its list of standard equipment with an ‘Urban
Pack' consisting of reversing sensors, LED ambient
interior lighting, a premium Supervision instrument
cluster and an illuminated driver's side vanity
mirror. There is also UV solar windscreen glass to
reduce glare and UV light in the cabin and privacy
glass on the rear side windows and tailgate.
The Quantum manual version costs £11,895 and has a five-speed gearbox.
Its combined fuel economy is 62.8mpg with CO2 emissions of 106g/km. It
has a top speed of 106mph and accelerates from 0-60mph in 11.0 seconds.
The four-speed Quantum automatic is priced at £12,495. Its fuel
consumption and CO2 emissions figures are 50.4mpg and 130g/km
respectively, while the performance details are 0-60mph in 12.9 seconds
and a top speed of 101mph.
Both models benefit from an
insurance rating in group 12, Kia's industry-leading
fully-transferable seven year warranty and are
available with Kia's inflation-proof and fixed price
Care-3 servicing package for just £299. The Picanto
Quantum models are now available in showrooms.
