Leading independent vehicle safety advocate, the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), awarded 5 star ANCAP safety ratings to the new Australian market entrant, the Kia Picanto, during National Road Safety Week.
A 5 star ANCAP safety rating has also been extended to the Australian Kia Picanto after being available in New Zealand for a number of years. The pedestrian protection rating of the Picanto was ‘Marginal’.
“The Kia reinforces that safety should not be restricted by budget with the Picanto providing an affordable 5 star vehicle choice,” said Mr Goodwin.
“National Road Safety Week is another reminder to consumers that choosing a safer vehicle plays a key part in reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries on our roads,” he said..
