Kia have announced a number of updates to their UK model line-up.

The changes see all manual Kia Picanto models come with integrated Stop & Go, while all 1 grade models gain new wheel trims.

A new special edition model has been added to the Ceed range.  The Ceed GT-Line Lunar Edition features premium Lunar Silver paintwork, panoramic sunroof, LED bi-function headlights, heated black cloth seat with faux leather bolsters, and heated D-cut sports steering wheel.   Powered by a 138bhp 1.4-litre T-GDi engine with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed DCT automatic gearbox, the Ceed GT-Line Lunar Edition is priced from £25,340.

The rest of the Ceed range has also been treated to updated equipment, including new 8.0-inch touchscreen display, widescreen 10.25-inch unit, and the option of new UVO CONNECT telematics.  Ceed GT-Line S models get a new 12.3-inch Full Digital Cluster, while Ceed 3 Sportwagon models now feature Advanced Driving Assistance Pack as standard.

Diesel-powered Sportage models will now include 48-volt mild hybrid technology as standard, resulting in lower Vehicle Excise Duty and lower company car Benefit-in-Kind taxation.

Finally, the Kia Stinger line-up gains a new model, called the Blue Edition.  The 242bhp 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol Blue Edition builds on the current GT-Line S trim with the addition of Electric Blue premium paintwork, 19-inch alloy wheels, and electronic controlled suspension, all for just £37,375.

The revised Kia range is on sale now at UK retailers.
