The 1000cc Picanto hatchback will be the first small car offered by a mainstream automaker ever since the Auto Policy 2016-21 was announced. Although one might bring United Bravo into debate but that’s not coming from a renowned auto manufacturer and despite being on sale for more than a year, the vehicle is yet to step out of selected cities of Punjab province.

Kia Picanto Booking to Start Next Week 2

Kia Picanto is expected to give buyers an option among small cars– the segment which is wholly dominated by Pak Suzuki. The Picanto stacks up pretty close to the Pak Suzuki Cultus (Celerio) having similar dimensions as well as the engine. To read more about an in-depth analysis of the two, click here.

The Picanto will ideally be priced around the Suzuki Cultus variants, though official prices are yet to be announced. However since Kia-Lucky is going to introduce an out-gone Picanto model in Pakistan, they may be able to price it lower than the Suzuki rival.

How much success the Picanto is going to garner in our market depends a lot on its price and after sales support. But if priced correctly, it’s sure going to give some serious competition to small Suzuki hatchbacks in Pakistan.

Price will be equivalent to that of Suzuki Cultus as confirmed from Kia officials.

Cultus AGS is 1.975 million. Same price will be for Picanto AGS.

Expected price for picanto around 18 to 20 lakh which is a serious concern. Price should be around 15 to 17 lakh. Anyway let’s see

Agree, the only competition to cultus is price, if same price then it will not be able to compete.
