    About the Kia Picanto

    Kia has published pricing and specifications for its refreshed 2024 Picanto, which has ceded the title of Australia’s cheapest car to the MG 3.

    While the base 2023 Picanto S manual started at $16,290 before on-road costs or $18,890 drive-away, the new base 2024 Picanto Sport manual rings up at $17,890 before on-roads ($20,690 drive-away).

    The MG 3, in contrast, opens at $19,990 drive-away. There’s been a substantial increase in standard equipment with the updated Picanto, however.

    In the renamed base grade, that includes active blind-spot and rear cross-traffic assists as well as lane-keep and lane-centring systems – all of which can’t be found in the MG 3, which lacks even autonomous emergency braking.
