Kia unveils Picanto, Ceed, Stonic and Sportage special editions

Five new trims available across the current Kia range

Kia has revealed five new special trim levels across its model range. The trim levels offer more equipment for less money and four of Kia’s best-selling models benefit from at least one new specification. All models are on sale now, starting from £12,350.

The Kia Picanto gets a new Titanium Edition trim, so called because of its Titanium Silver metallic paint. The new trim level gets a host of other styling enhancements, including tinted rear windows, 15-inch alloy wheels, fog lights and LED headlights. For a small car, the Picanto Titanium Edition offers a huge amount of equipment: a seven-inch touchscreen has DAB radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, voice control and a reversing camera, and there’s also faux leather upholstery and black gloss trim pieces. This spec comes with a choice of the 65bhp 1.0-litre ‘MPi’ petrol engine from £12,350, or the 82bhp 1.25-litre engine with a four-speed automatic gearbox for £13,520.

The Kia Stonic crossover is now available in a Maxx trim level. Replacing the previous Mixx special edition, the new car comes with white paint and a contrasting black roof, 17-inch alloys, privacy glass and black door mirrors. Equipment includes a reversing camera, LED tail-lights and black faux leather upholstery. Only the turbocharged 118bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine is available but there’s a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic, with prices starting at £18,770 and £19,770 respectively.

There are two new trims for the Kia Ceed hatchback. Sitting at the top of the range, the Ceed GT-Line Lunar Edition adds Lunar Silver paintwork, LED headlights and a panoramic glass sunroof over the GT-Line spec. You can only pick this trim on the hatchback (not the Sportswagon or ProCeed) with the 138bhp 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine, but the choice of manual or automatic gearbox should suit most buyers. It’s priced from £24,140, or £25,240 with the auto gearbox.

A new ‘2 Nav’ trim has also been added to the Ceed line-up. As the name suggests, Kia will now sell you a Ceed in ‘2’ trim but with an eight-inch sat-nav system built in. Available on hatchback and Sportswagon estate variants with either a petrol or diesel engine, the new trim is £300 more than the ‘2’ specification level. Elsewhere, the GT-Line derivative is now offered with an automatic gearbox and the 1.6-litre CRDi diesel engine.

Finally, you can now choose a Kia Sportage SUV as a Platinum Edition, which features leather upholstery, adaptive LED headlights, sat nav, a JBL premium sound system, electric seats, a heated steering wheel and more. It’s available with Dark Penta Metal paint and black upholstery, or Lunar Silver paint and grey leather. The Lunar Silver paint colour is usually only available on the GT-Line trim. Offered with the 134bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine and a manual gearbox, it costs from £26,195.
