The Kia Picanto
Kia Picanto (2009)

Kia has introduced a whole host of special editions this month to help keep the winter blues at bay. The best-selling Kia Picanto city car and Kia Rio supermini have both had a range-topping Graphite model added in stunning Titanium Silver and the Kia Soul range has introduced a new design to its 'Originals' collection.

They say the best things come in small packages and the new 1.1 Kia Picanto Graphite is no exception. It is a sophisticated package with an extensive specification including 14-inch alloy wheels, remote central locking, front electric windows, leather steering wheel, rear spoiler, silver centre fascia and CD audio with iPod compatibility as standard. For driver comfort, Graphite adds driver's seat height adjust, tilt adjustable steering and air conditioning. And for the driver's wallet, all this comes for just £8,495 including free metallic titanium silver paintwork.

The Kia Picanto's older, but equally glamorous sister the Kia Rio supermini, has also received the Graphite makeover which makes the most of its recent facelift. Integrated mirror indicators, 15-inch alloy wheels, black bezel headlights and front fogs all enhance the Kia Rio from the outside while standard features such as air-conditioning, alloy pedals, a metallic centre fascia, leather steering wheel and gear knob makes what's on the inside count too. The Kia Rio Graphite is available in 1.4 petrol and 1.5 CRDi engines for just £9,395 and £10,395 respectively.
