The tested model of Kia Picanto was introduced in New Zealand during 2011. It was not in sale in Australia at the time of this assessment. This ANCAP rating applies to all New Zealand variants.

The 1.0 litre 3 cylinder left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP*. Kia provided information to ANCAP which showed that RHD variants with the 1.25 litre 4 cylinder engine have comparable occupant protection.

Dual front airbags, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. A driver knee airbag is standard on the EX variant but is not necessary for this 5-star ANCAP rating. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted all seats. Pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.

A full list of safety features and technologies can be viewed within the Technical Report (see download link).

NOTE: In June 2016 ANCAP conducted a frontal offset crash test of an Australian Picanto for audit purposes. The audit test score was 12.95 points which meets the minimum 5 star eligibility criteria for this test. Audit test results for driver chest and lower leg protection rated ‘Marginal’ indicating a moderate risk of serious injury.
