Fleet news logo

Kia has updated the Picanto and Rio trim line-ups.

There are now three trim grades in the 5-door Picanto line-up – ‘1 Air’, ‘SE’ and ‘Sport’. ‘SE’ replaces the former ‘SR7’ and ‘2’ grades, with ‘Sport’ taking the place of the ‘3’ and ‘4’ grade. The entry-level ‘1’ model has been discontinued, but the range pricing continues to start from £8,545.

The new Rio 5-door line-up consists of ‘1 Air’, ‘SE’, ‘3’ and ‘4’ grades. ‘SE’ takes the place of the previous ‘SR7’ and ‘2’ grades and the former entry-level grade ‘1’ has been discontinued. Rio 5-door pricing starts from £10,945 for the ‘1 Air’ – the same price as the old level ‘1’ model.    

The new Picanto ‘1 Air’ is offered at the same £8,545 price as the old ‘1’ model, it means that this new entry-level version gains air conditioning as a free upgrade. This model also now benefits from Bluetooth, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and front seat belt height adjustment as no-cost additions.

As with the Picanto, the new five-door Rio ‘1 Air’ now includes air conditioning and is offered at the same price as the former grade ‘1’ model from £10,945.
