The Picanto GT-Line boasts new features designed to add a level of excitement to the line-up. Unique to the GT-Line variant are the new colour accents on the full body kit and Kia’s signature ‘tiger nose’ grille at the front to add to the aggressive stance.

There are also sporty-looking dual exhaust pipes at the rear of the GT-Line.

The  GT-Line is further fitted with 16-inch alloy wheels and pedals, LED daytime running lights and fog lamps, shark-fin antenna, and keyless entry.

The GT-Line is also equipped as standard with a sporty D-cut steering wheel, a rear-view parking camera, wireless smartphone charger and USB port. For maximum convenience, the GT-Line variant also comes equipped with Full Auto Temperature Control (FATC) which automatically maintains the set cabin temperature for a comfortable drive.

The new Picanto body is made of advanced high strength steel. The car comes with six standard airbags (dual front, side and curtain airbags) as well as active safety features such as Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) and Hill-start Assist Control (HAC).

“Following the launch of the Picanto 1.2 EX model last year, Naza Kia Malaysia is introducing a sporty variant of the A-segment car.
