The first generation Picanto was revealed at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show.[10] It was based on a shortened platform of the Hyundai Getz and was 3,495 mm (137.6 in) long, with a five-door hatchback body style.[11] The car was available with a choice of two petrol engines: a 1.0-litre, with 61 hp (45 kW) and 86 N·m (63 lb·ft), or a 1.1-litre, with 65 hp (48 kW) and 97 N·m (72 lb·ft), both with multipoint injection.[12] In Europe, a 1.1-litre three-cylinder diesel engine (based on the Kia Cerato's 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit) was also available, with direct injection and a variable geometry turbocharger, the power reaching 75 hp (56 kW) and a torque of 153 N·m (113 lb·ft). The petrol engines had a combined consumption of 5.1 l/100 km (55 mpg-imp) and 5.2 l/100 km (54 mpg-imp) respectively, while the diesel used 4.4 l/100 km (64 mpg-imp). An automatic gearbox (with torque converter)[13] was optional for the petrol units. In some countries, it was sold with a 1.2-litre engine, also used on the newer Hyundai i10.

To increase its appeal in the European market, the Picanto was equipped with such features as CD player with MP3 audio playback, air conditioning, front and patented rear electric windows, remote central locking, and electric mirrors. These features were advertised in a short-lived ad campaign starring Marcus Grönholm.

The second generation Picanto made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011.[26] Designed by Kia's European design team based in Frankfurt, Germany, under the direction of Peter Schreyer, the new model is longer in wheelbase and overall length than its predecessor. The Picanto is offered with a choice of two gasoline engines: a 1.0 liter three-cylinder[22] or a 1.25 liter four-cylinder. The Europe-spec 1.25 liter engine features ecoDynamics, Kia's start-stop system.[27] In addition, there is also a petrol/LPG version of the 1.0 liter engine available.[23] The Brazil version is equipped with a flex fuel version of the 1.0 liter engine that uses both petrol and ethanol.[24]

The Picanto is available worldwide (except North America, Venezuela, China, and Singapore; it was pulled out of Thailand in 2016 and Malaysia in 2017) as a 5-door hatchback while the European market receives the exclusive 3-door variant.[28] The 3-door version is the same length as the 5-door model, but it sports new windows and doors, different bumpers and a front grille with silver or red trim.[29] In South Korea, the Morning is offered in a Sport Pack, which consists of the 3-door's front and rear bumpers, as well as a digital speedometer.[30]

In some countries, the Picanto name is accompanied by a modifier for marketing reasons. Examples include Picanto Ion for Colombia,[31]Picanto R for Ecuador,[32]Picanto Flex for Brazil,[33]Picanto K1 for Thailand,[34] and Picanto 1250 for New Zealand.[35] In the Indonesian market, the 1.0 liter variant was named Morning 1.0 to distinguish it from the 1.2 liter Picanto; this variant was sold in 2015 only.[36]

Picanto R-Cross

In November 2013, Kia Netherlands released a limited edition model called the Picanto R-Cross. Marketed to compete with the Volkswagen CrossUp, this model features a black body kit that wraps around the wheel wells and is fitted with 14" alloy wheels. Only 500 units of the R-Cross were produced.[37][38]

Marketing

As part of the marketing campaign for the Picanto, Kia produced a promotional video featuring the world's first nail art animation. Over 900 artificial nails and 1,200 bottles of nail polish were used in a span of 25 days (with each nail taking two hours to paint) to create images of the Picanto in motion.[39]

In the UK, the Picanto is the official sponsor of the ITV dating game show Take Me Out. Kia UK released a series of viral videos on their YouTube channel to promote both the car and the programme. Each video features actress Natasha Barrero, as she drives a black Picanto 3-door before being swooned over by different men.[40]

A Lemon Grass Morning appears as the transforming robot Tobot D in the South Korean animated series Tobot.[41]

Reception

The Picanto was met with positive reviews in the UK. Top Gear magazine gave it a score of seven out of 10, describing it as "a well-made, well-equipped, practical and affordable little thing that's cheap to run and ought to put the wind up more expensive European cars."[42]What Car? magazine gave it three out of five stars, commenting that it has "a classy cabin and a fine driving position. Most versions are decently equipped and there's a market-leading seven-year warranty."[43]Auto Express rated it 3.8 out of five stars, calling it "one of the best looking cars in its class, with chunky styling and the firm's distinctive 'tiger-nose' grille - it makes the Hyundai i10 look dull and the Fiat 500 a bit old-fashioned."[44] The magazine also ranked the Picanto sixth among the 10 best city cars.[45] Ben Barry of Car Magazine gave it four out of five stars, calling it "a very accomplished car, one that looks good and is fun to drive whether you're in town or out on the open road."[46]

Awards

The Picanto won the iF product design award in the "Transportation Design" category in 2011[47] and the Red Dot award in the "Automobiles, transportation, commercial and water vehicles" category in 2012.[48][49]Top Gear magazine named the Picanto "Bargain Car of the Year" in 2011.[50] The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers awarded the Picanto as "Best Small Car" in 2011.[51] In South Africa, the Picanto took the Standard Bank People's Wheels Award for "Budget Buys - Affordability First" three years straight from 2011 to 2013.[52][53] In 2016, J.D. Power and Associates awarded the Picanto on UK Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) in the City Car category.[54]

In October 2014, Kia Motors announced that the third generation Picanto will be launched within the second half of 2015. The new model will be using sheet metal of lighter weight than its predecessor.[64] In January 2016, spy shots of the new model were published online.[65] The third generation Picanto made its official global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.[66]

The Picanto is equipped with a choice of three engines: the outgoing model's 1.0 liter Kappa II three cylinder engine in normal and turbocharged versions, and the 1.2 liter Kappa II four cylinder engine. Both 1.0 liter engines are mated exclusively with a 5-speed manual transmission while the 1.2 liter engine will be offered with an optional automatic transmission.[67][63] The car features all-new safety features such as Torque Vectoring Brake Based (TVBB) system, Straight Line Stability (SLS), Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS), and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB).[68]

While the Picanto is launched globally through the 2017 calendar year, it is expected to enter the Indian market in 2018 to introduce the Kia brand to the country.[69]

Marketing

Kia Motors in South Korea debuted the Morning in January 2017 with a series of TV commercials featuring actors Shim Eun-kyung, Park Jung-min, and Jin Kyung.[70] For the international release of the Picanto and the fourth generation Kia Rio, Kia Motors produced two music videos featuring Korean-American singer Kate Kim and American musician Lee Radde in May 2017.[71][72]

Reception

The third generation Kia Picanto was met with positive reviews in Europe and Australia. Top Gear rated the car 7 out of 10 with the tagline: "Another string to Kia's ever more impressive bow, the Picanto is a fun and interesting city car."[73] Richard Ingram of Auto Express gave it four out of five stars, calling it "a more grown up alternative to the Renault Twingo, and its mature manners should see it give the Skoda Citigo something to worry about. Plusher, more refined and better to drive than its predecessor, the cheap-to-run Picanto is an exciting class contender".[74]What Car? rated the car four out of five stars, calling it "one of the better city cars, with a smart interior, tidy handling and decent practicality".[75] Matt Saunders of Autocar gave it three-and-a-half out of five stars, commenting that it "sets a high bar on refinement, packaging and out-of-town dynamism, but avoid the entry-level engine".[76] Australian car website Motoring gave the car a score of 78 out of 100, pointing out that "Where the Picanto excels is in the areas of comfort and, more importantly, refinement. It delivers the kind of polished ride quality you might expect from a larger hatchback while the build quality and materials used throughout the cabin add to the car's grown-up feeling."[77]Chris Evans of the Daily Mail gave the Picanto "2" trim two out of five stars, saying that "Not only is the Picanto '2' unbearably depressing and oppressive visually, all the interior surfaces are ugly and hard." He gave the Picanto GT-Line S a rating of four out of five stars, commenting that "This is it a much better car all round. A whole new world for just £3k more. I know it wasn't the car I was meant to review, but sometimes it's more useful not to play by the rules."[78]
