    Is this it? Mukhang lower-spec ang nandito sa atin. Exactly as planned?

    With specs like these (from Top Gear)...
    The all-new Picanto is available with a 1.0-liter (998cc), in-line, three-cylinder Kappa MPI gasoline engine that churns out 69.96 horses and pulls with 94.18 Newton Meters of torque. It comes with either the five-speed manual transmission variant at P545,000 or a four-speed automatic model that sells for P599,000. CAC is offering only these two variants of the car differentiated by smaller 14-inch steel rims for the manual versus the 15-inch alloys on the automatic. A MacPherson Strut front suspension and a coupled torsion beam in the rear carry the car on four corners.
    Inside, the Kia Picanto is equipped with a single-DIN, MP3, CD, auxiliary and USB-ready JVC radio for entertainment. Power windows and door locks are standard on both models. Black fabric buckets seats with 60-40 folding rears can accommodate five. ABS and airbags, however, are not standard on the new Picanto.
    Domingo although reiterates that the all-new Picanto comes with a five-year, 160,000-kilometer bumper-to-bumper warranty.
    ... the Phils just gets the basic model. Oh well, this is Kia, Hyundai's poor cousin. I guess they couldn't make the Picanto too competitive vs. the i10 at baka magalit yung rich cousin.

    Forget the i10 or the Celerio. I'm comparing both the new Picanto to the new Chevrolet Spark. Both are Korean-made, and both are highly competitive.

    Looks nice kahit 1 Liter lang ang engine na dinala rito ng Kia Philippines..Mukhang medyo inayos na ng Kia Philippines ang pricing ng cars nila starting with the new Picanto and new Sportage..

    Sana nga, sobrang overpriced IMO considering na CBU Korea naman ito.

    Yep, at least retain the projector HL's sana. Tumapak na rin siya sa Vios price-level eh. Eto siguro yung mga may ayaw sa Celerio, i10, spark & Vios.
