2017 Kia Picanto Revealed!!!

Overview

The third-generation Picanto will be presented in European specification at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show this coming March. Kia has unveiled the third-generation Picanto city car to take on the new Holden Spark. Now in its third generation, the Picanto has adopted more sporty styling inspired by Kia’s potent Ceed GT and Pro Ceed GT models. 

picanto-overview

The profile borrows much from the larger Rio, with a simple and subtle look, while the rear of the new Picanto will build on its predecessor’s hooked tail-light design. In GT-Line form, the 2017 Kia Picanto boasts a sporty chromatic identity and a body kit inspired by hot hatchbacks.

Interior

The interior exhibits a vibrant design dominated by oval-shaped outer air vents, a neatly integrated touchscreen-based infotainment system, and two-tone part-leather seats. Leather (or perhaps synthetic hide) adorns much of the furnishings including seats, steering wheel, door arm rests and gear gaiter complete with red flashes or stitching.

picanto-int

The interior changes are headlined by a new young audience-targeting central touchscreen which appears to offer access to a number of services including navigation, while the surrounding hardware has been modernized with a symmetrical look and digital control panel.

Styling

The main changes will mostly be seen up front where the firm’s latest signature ‘tiger’ grille will be found flanked by new headlight clusters with bold LED daytime running lights. Regarding technology and safety, the highlights come in the form of a more rigid chassis and body, Torque Vectoring Brake Based , Autonomous Emergency Brake, and a knee airbag for the driver. 

styling

The theme continues into the cabin, where the Picanto will feature a Rio-like ‘floating’ look for its main display screen – still a popular trend across the market. The Picanto has a 15mm longer wheelbase compared with the current model.The GT Line model features a bright red trim piece from almost every angle.

Engine

The replacement Picanto is expected to use heavily revised versions of the existing 1.0-litre and 1.25-litre petrol engines. Kia’s excellent 1.0-litre turbocharged, three-cylinder engine used in the Cee’d may also be a possibility, but whether Kia decides to fit the 98hp variant into the Picanto is yet to be confirmed.

Power for the new Kia Picanto is likely to come from the same 65bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 85bhp 1.25-litre four-cylinder engines, while low emissions and strong fuel economy will give the newcomer a fighting chance in the hard-fought city car class.

2017 Mazda6 Atenza First Drive!!!!

The debut of Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control technology on its flagship sedan and wagon range, in conjunction with a bunch of noise-reducing, luxury-enhancing measures to give the Mazda 6 a chance up against other sedans.

Interior

The interior still delivers that genuine feeling of premium quality that Mazda has been nailing for a while now, despite the far-from-premium price tag. New Nappa leather for the Atenza grades we drive at launch help even more here, but the quality of the infotainment system, switchgear design and layout, seating comfort and general ambiance remain a carryover from the previous model.
interior

The new steering wheel looks premium and features re-positioned buttons with better tactile feel. The Multi-Information Display in the meter cluster is now full color – like the Active Driving Display (Head Up Display) – and has a more diverse range of functions. 

Exterior

Mazda6 is virtually unchanged on the outside, with just slight tweaks to the wing mirrors to set it apart. There’s no doubt it’s a stylish design, perhaps even more so in wagon form. On the road, the wagon cuts a dashing figure that leaves me wondering why more families don’t opt for a wagon as opposed to an SUV. 

exterior

Engine

A ‘High Precision DE Boost Control’ system improves the precision and response of the engine’s torque delivery in light-throttle situations. The unchanged 2.5-litre SkyActiv-G petrol four also gets a bit vocal higher up in the rev range. 

engine

But the biggest addition to the 6 is Mazda’s GVC technology. Mazda claims that GVC reduces fatigue and increases stability by altering the amount of torque delivered to each front wheel while driving, resulting in smoother steering inputs and less roll movement.

Safety

The 2017 Mazda6 lifts its safety credentials further with an even more comprehensive safety suit which now adds pedestrian recognition to SCBSThe safety system also adds traffic sign recognition on some models and blind spot monitoring across the range.

safety

The boost in safety features makes the Mazda 6 one of the safest vehicles in its class, especially in the full fat Atenza variant tested here.  Every Mazda6 gets six airbags and all but the entry-level Sport get front and rear parking sensors.

engine

The Chrysler Pacifica provides a Best-in-Class maximum towing capacity of 3,600 pounds. Engineered to keep you safe, Electronic Stability Control applies selective braking and throttle control (if necessary) to help you maintain directional control.

Pacifica vs. Pacifica Hybrid

Visually, the Pacifica Hybrid isn’t much different from the gasoline-powered version — aside from a unique grille and wheels, the two versions are nearly identical. Inside, the Pacifica Hybrid gets a unique dashboard with hybrid-specific gauges, and the infotainment system includes screens that illustrate how the hybrid system operates and track your fuel economy. 

Safety

An available 360° Surround View Camera provides a bird‘s-eye view of the Chrysler Pacifica, using four cameras positioned around the vehicle to create a fully stitched image. Available FCW+ assists you by providing both audible and visual warnings as well as applying the brakes if needed.
