  • Kia Picanto1.25 ‘3’is available for less than £150 a month

Kia Motors (UK) Ltd. is delighted to announce the all-new Picanto available at Bells Kia, has been awarded the ‘Best Car for less than £150 a month’ at the Carbuyer Best Car Awards. The Picanto was praised for its practicality and value for money, with the Picanto 1.25 ‘3’ being highlighted for its level of standard equipment.

The third-generation Picanto went on sale in the UK earlier this year. The Picanto ‘3’ is one of five trims available and comes with 15-inch alloy wheels, Autonomous Emergency Braking and a 7-inch centre-mounted 'floating' touchscreen, giving access to the navigation, infotainment and connectivity systems. It is the first small Kia to have Kia Connected Services powered by TomTom™ and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ via apps pre-loaded onto a smartphone.

Clive Bell, Managing Director from Bells Kia comments: “It’s fantastic that the Picanto has won yet another award this year. It goes to show that the finance deals offered here at Bells Kia and across the Kia dealer network are extremely competitive and popular. We look forward to welcoming the people of Bedford and Northampton to our dealerships to discuss the Kia Picanto and finance options.”

Commenting on the success of the Picanto, Carbuyer Editor Stuart Milne said: "The Kia Picanto has grown up, but thankfully it’s still a new-car bargain. You can buy a well specified Picanto ‘3’ for less than £150 a month. For that, you’ll enjoy the Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ technology operated through one of the simplest and most responsive infotainment systems in the business. The price isn’t the only draw, though: the Picanto is also good looking, practical, cheap to run and good to drive. If you’ve got £150 a month to spend, you can’t do better."

Bells Kia stocks a wide range of new and used Kia models, including the all-new Picanto priced from £9,450.
