Canny car buyers looking for a good deal in March can put some Zapp! into their lives with Kia’s new special edition Picanto. Available from 1 March, the exclusive Picanto Zapp! comes in at only £300 above the entry-level S model but with a specification based on the higher priced GS model.

With additional features over the S model including body coloured bumpers, front electric windows and central locking, the 1.0 litre Zapp! comes in six different colours and is available from £5,995 on-the-road. All new owners will get one year’s free insurance and can drive away for a £1 deposit.

The Picanto range, that recently came top in the Parker’s Price Guide residual values survey, already comes with an unrivalled level of specification including ABS with EBD, CD audio with MP3 player and power steering, all as standard.

Paul Williams, Managing Director of Kia Motors (UK) Ltd, said: "This is an exciting new edition to the great value Picanto range which was our best seller last year with over 12,000 UK sales. Value conscious motorists will find the Zapp! cheap to run doing an excellent 55.4 mpg and the Zapp! also comes with an exclusive finance deal. For a 22% deposit, customers can run Zapp! for a very affordable £99 a month."*
