THE NEW CHILLI MODEL, NOW AVAILABLE AT MARSH KIA EXETER - ADDS AN EXTRA KICK TO KIA'S PICANTO RANGE

 

  • The Chilli is the latest addition to the Picanto Originals programme
  • First model in the range to offer sat-nav as standard
  • Powered by a 1.2-litre, four cylinder petrol engine
  • Available in three exterior colours from July 1

 

Marsh Kia Exeter is delighted to announce that the new Picanto ‘Chilli’ model is now on sale. The Chilli is a high specification, value-priced model, which offers buyers the option of a five-speed manual from £11,495, or a four-speed automatic from £12,095 – both are perfect for zipping around town in.

 

Ideal for those looking for a stylish car, the Chilli features enhanced front and rear bumpers, with a twin exhaust tailpipe. All models are finished in red, black, or white paintwork, and feature sporty looking 15 inch allow wheels. Black faux leather seats with vibrant red and grey cushions add to the sporty-feel of the car, and the Gloss Black finish of the steering wheel bezel and gear-shifter incorporate a luxury vibe to the interior.

 

Marsh Kia Exeter is looking forward to stocking the elegant new model, which is the first in the Picanto range to come sat-nav with European mapping as standard.

 

“The Chilli model is a really sleek addition to the Picanto Originals Programme,” said Adam Liddicoat of Marsh Kia Exeter. “We think it will prove a hit with customers, especially as it comes with the added bonus of sat nav as standard! We’re more than happy to organise test-drives, and provide more information, so do come and see us if the Chilli takes your fancy!”

 

As with all Kia models, the new Chilli comes with Kia’s outstanding seven-year warranty.

EU6 powertrains

The Picanto now features EU6-compliant powertrains in eight models, with the remainder due to be converted a little later in the year. The 1.0-litre, three-cylinder Picanto 1, SR7 and 2 variants – three- and five-door – now meet the latest emissions standard, as do the two 1.2-litre, four-cylinder Chilli models.

 

The 1.0-litre Kappa EU6 engine develops 65bhp and 95Nm (70lb ft) of torque and has fuel economy of 62.8mpg with CO2 emissions of 105g/km. It is available only as a five-speed manual. The 1.2, also from the Kappa family, develops 84bhp and 120Nm (89lb ft) and has economy and emissions figures of 61.4mpg and 106g/km with the five-speed manual gearbox, or 50.4mpg and 130g/km with the four-speed automatic.

 

As with every Kia, the Picanto range comes with a unique-in-the-UK seven-year or 100,000-mile warranty, subject to certain wear and tear conditions. It is fully transferable should the car be sold before the time or mileage limits have been reached.
