The last Picanto to arrive in Malaysia was the GT-Line at RM57,888 whereas the Perodua Axia is priced from just RM38,600 which gives it an almost RM19k price difference.

For 2024, KIA has made changes to this popular compact car with very noticeable changes to the bumpers and doors.

It carries the KIA Niro inspired headlights with L-shaped signature lights. The low beams, taillights and third brake lights are all LEDs.

The dashboard now carries a larger floating-style touchscreen infotainment system.

So, how much will it cost? Well in Germany where KIA is very popular and happens to be the largest compact petrol powered car market in Europe, this South Korean commuter car is the most affordable KIA vehicle with a starting price of USD17,340.  This is why it cannot be popular in Malaysia against our national cars that enjoy very low duties.
