All-new Kia Picanto set for Malaysian debut on 10 January 2018

Shortly after revealing the initial specifications of the third-generation Kia Picanto, Naza Kia Malaysia (NKM) has just confirmed on their social media pages that the all-new hatchback will make its Malaysian debut on the 10th January 2018.

First presented to the public at the 2017 Malaysia Autoshow, we know that the Picanto will be equipped with projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights, front air curtains, front fog lamps, LED combination taillamps and chrome door handles. Inside you’ll find a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, keyless entry and reverse camera with dynamic guidelines.The safety equipment list reads six airbags, ABS, Electronic Stability Control and Hill-Start Assist. We will have to wait for the official launch for more details on performance, exterior trim lines, variant choices and most importantly, price.

Previously, NKM offered the second-gen Picanto in automatic and manual variants, both priced below RM60k. It is very likely that NKM will price the new Picanto as competitively as before. If you’re keen on having the Picanto as a potential replacement for your city commute, registration of interest for the new compact hatchback is now open.



  1. Okay nak tahu siapa yang design kereta Picanto ni memang cantik. Geram sungguh tengok memang dah lama tunggu keluar. Picanto ni ada brp colour eh? Haritu tengok teaser colour kuning je

  2. Kia ni memang selalu datang dengan imej dan design yang berlainan dari competitor dia. Bila dah keluar Picanto ni makin buat aku tak sabar pulak nak test drive.

  3. Tak sabar nak test drive kia Picanto baru ni, dari hujung tahun lepas lagi i tunggu. Dah sampai masanya kot untuk i tukar kereta baru. Tak sabar nak pergi showroom Kia!

  4. After a lot of teasers and rumours, this new version of Picanto with great specs and design finally launched. Good job KIA. Looking forward to drive on my own.

  5. Heard that the starting price for Picanto is RM49,888. Who would have expect that it would be that low. Myvi have a serious threat now. Kia all the wayyy.
