Topless KIA Picanto For Summer

Thu, 18 May 2006
Kia has introduced two special edition Picantos for the summer.

The Picanto Zipp! and Zipp+ both feature a full length Webasto electric folding canvas sunroof. It has two pre-programmable settings and can be retracted to any position to provide varying degrees of sunlight and summer breezes into the car. If it gets too hot, simply close the roof using the one-touch panel and flick on the air conditioning which comes as standard on the Zipp+ model.

The 1.0-litre Zipp! comes with all the additional benefits of the Picanto GS including ABS with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), twin airbags and CD audio with MP3 player.

For only £500 extra, the 1.1-litre Zipp+ offers the open-top specification of the Zipp! as well as extras such as a leather steering wheel, body coloured side mouldings, air-conditioning and remote central door locking. Customers preferring an automatic transmission on the Zipp+ can pick one up for only £7,995.

The Zipp! is available in scarlet red and cobalt blue and in addition to these colours, the Zipp+ adds Galaxy Black and Liquid Silver. Both Zipp! models are currently offered with one year’s free insurance.

Picanto 1.0 Zipp! £6,995

Picanto 1.1 Zipp+ £7,495

Picanto 1.1 Zipp+ Auto £7,995

Metallic/Mica paint extra £325
