Savvy Picanto owners will now have more money to spend about town if they part exchange their current Picanto for a newer model this month and benefit from a £500 loyalty discount off their new purchase.
Despite being nearly three years old, the demand for Picanto has never wavered and this baby of the range has been Kia’s best seller year on year since its launch in May 2004. Its cute face and spritely engine have fuelled customers’ love for the Picanto and now Kia is giving those smart-thinking drivers something back by offering this special bonus.
Paul Philpott, Managing Director of Kia Motors (UK) Limited said: “Picanto meets the needs of a new and younger customer base for Kia and has helped us to make great strides in the past three years. This offer allows any Picanto owner to replace their current model and to fall in love with their car all over again.
“Picanto set us on the way to our ambitious target of becoming a leading automaker by 2010 and with offers like this we hope to continue that trend. With the recent launch of our European cee’d five-door and imminent launch of another two cee’d models, we are positive that we will take a further step towards achieving that goal,” he added.
Picanto offers the ideal package for people who are always on the move but prefer their wallet to stay put. Offering a choice of 1.0- or 1.1-litre engines, two transmissions and a combined mpg of up to 55.4, it’s easy to understand why there are so many on the UK roads.
The entry-level Picanto GS is available from as little as £5,995 coming with an exceptional level of specification as standard; ABS with EBD, CD audio with MP3 player and power steering, all as standard. Step up to the 1.1 LS and for just £600 more, gain all the benefits of a larger engine plus air-conditioning as standard.
In addition to this offer, Kia Finance have now reduced their standard PCP rate making Picanto an even better option for value conscious buyers for as little as £99 a month. As an example*, to purchase the entry-level 1.0-litre GS buyers would pay a £1,800 deposit, first payment of £145 followed by 35 payments of £99 and a final payment of £1,701.Published 1 March 2007
