Kia South Africa has announced that it'll be offering the compact Picanto with a service plan as standard.
We at Cars.co.za are quite fond of the Kia Picanto, but if there was one issue we had, it would be the service plan or lack thereof. Now Kia is offering a 2-year / 30 000 km service plan for its Picanto range as standard.
“With the new 2-year/30,000km service plan on all KIA Picanto models, customers not only know when to have their cars serviced but also benefits from the predictability of pricing over the plan’s duration,” says David Sieff, Marketing Director, KIA Motors South Africa. “Servicing costs are set for the duration of the plan, meaning customers won’t have to pay anything extra for parts or labour should there be a price increase while the service plan is active, which is a notable value add.”
This current shape Kia Picanto made landfall in SA back in July 2017 and is available with a choice of 1.0-litre or 1.2-litre engine with the option of either manual or automatic transmission. There are 4 levels of trim on offer too.
The new service plan joins the already impressive unlimited kilometre / 5-year warranty. For the record, the Kia Picanto range starts from R158 995.
