By Kia New Zealand


The Kia Picanto city car range will be boosted with the introduction of an SUV variant that delivers bold styling and more power from a turbocharged engine.

Unveiled at this month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the all-new Picanto X-Line model further broadens the appeal of the range that was recently launched in New Zealand.

It goes on sale in Europe by the end of the year and Kia Motors New Zealand has confirmed the super compact SUV will go on sale here too but is yet to confirm a launch date.

Kia Motors New Zealand General Manager, Todd McDonald, says: “The X-Line is an exciting model and we’re very much looking forward to seeing it join our Picanto line-up.

“We’ve had a very positive response to the new Picanto since it went on sale here and the SUV styling of the X-Line adds another dimension. It’s very much on trend.”

Arguably the best looking mini car on the market, the completely re-designed Picanto recently entered the New Zealand markets with three models, beginning with the LX manual, priced from a recommended $18,490+ORC, an LX Auto ($18,990+ORC) and a sports-styled GT Line auto ($21,490+ORC). All are powered by a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder 1.2-litre petrol engine and feature Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) as standard.The new X-Line SUV spices up the Kia Picanto formula with a more rugged body design that is highlighted by contrasting colour packs, along with raised ground clearance (now 156mm, 15mm higher than the standard Picanto) to give the driver a clearer view of the road.

Incorporating Kia’s signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille, the X-Line boasts more imposing SUV-style bumpers with metal-look skid plates at the front and rear that give it a more confident and go-anywhere appearance. A unique grille and fog lamp surrounds are finished with lime green or silver highlights, while black cladding around the wheel arches enhances the visual effect of the raised ground clearance.

Under the bonnet, the new Picanto X-Line benefits from Kia’s 1.0-litre T-GDI (turbocharged gasoline direct injection) engine, making it the most powerful Picanto ever.

As well as offering high efficiency and low emissions, the lightweight nature of the new T-GDI engine perfectly suits the Picanto’s fun-to-drive character. The 1.0-litre T-GDI engine delivers 75kW (100hp) at 4,500 rpm and 172Nm of torque between 1,500 and 4,000 rpm. It’s also very frugal, capable of 4.5 L/100km in the combined New European Driving Cycle.

The Kia Picanto X-Line is fitted with many of the features available in other Picanto models, including 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels (GT Line), aluminium pedals, LED daytime running lights and fog lamps, keyless entry (GT Line), Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for full smartphone integration. Like the Picanto GT Line, the Picanto X-Line is fitted as standard with a sporty D-cut steering wheel.

The New Zealand housing market is showing significant regional variances in the lead up to the general election. Nationally, there has been a fall in new listings, static asking prices and muted demand* in August.

Property Asking Price - August 2017.jpg


“With inventory and demand both low, we are currently in a relatively stable price environment,” says realestate.co.nz spokesperson Vanessa Taylor.

Real time statistics from realestate.co.nz show that nationally new property listings were down 17.5 per cent.

Average asking prices were down 1.7 per cent nationally (compared with the previous month), while demand was down 8.5 per cent.


New property listings fall 17.5 per cent nationally, with upper North Island hardest hit

Property New Listings - August 2017.jpg


Statistics from realestate.co.nz show that the number of new property listings in August fell 17.5 per cent nationally compared to the same month last year. All regions were impacted except for Hawkes Bay and the West Coast which both increased.

Only 8,729 new listings were registered across the country during August.

The upper half of the North Island saw the most dramatic falls in new listings compared to the same period last year, with Auckland down 22.7 per cent, Waikato 23.2 per cent, Northland 24.0 per cent and Coromandel 37.6 per cent.


Asking prices fall in Auckland region, interest falters

“The Auckland market appears to have lost its shine when it comes to potential buyer interest and asking prices have fallen,” says Vanessa Taylor.

Property asking prices fell one per cent in August to $933,502 compared to July 2017. The last time average Auckland asking prices were at this level was September 2016 when it stood at $933,435. In June 2017, there was an anomaly drop when we saw an influx of 800 apartments come onto the market, impacting on the overall average asking price.

Property Demand - August 2017.jpg


Of the 19 regions, demand for Auckland property sat at -23.9 per cent, placing the country’s largest city at the bottom of the table.

The Auckland region also registered a 22.7 per cent fall in the number of new property listings compared to August 2016.


Asking prices “all-time highs” in five regions

In contrast to Auckland, asking prices in August were at all-time highs in five other regions across the country – namely Waikato, Wellington, Taranaki, Central Otago Lakes and the Wairarapa.


Waikato:

“The Waikato region paints an interesting picture,” says Vanessa Taylor.


“The record average asking price of $552,707 is offset by a 23.2 per cent fall in the number of new property listings compared to the same period last year, so it could be assumed that asking prices may be impacted by supply and demand pressures,” she says.

However, interest in the region (as recorded by demand) is relatively low. The Waikato region is second to bottom (above Auckland) when it comes to interest from across the country (-18.61 per cent).

Taranaki:

The Taranaki region recorded a record asking price in August of $405,105 and was also in the top three regions in terms of demand up 27.73 per cent.


Wellington and Wairarapa:

Close neighbours, the Wairarapa and Wellington regions both recorded asking price highs, but painted a different picture when it came to demand.


The Wellington region’s asking price was up two per cent to $579,243, but sat at third lowest on the demand table (above the Waikato and Auckland regions).


By contrast in the Wairarapa the average asking price was up 7.5 per cent to $430,387, while demand was also up 11.2 per cent placing it sixth of the 19 regions across the country.


Central Otago/Lakes:

For the first time in history, the Central Otago/Lakes District broke the $900k mark in asking prices, recording a significant lift (up 9.1 per cent) from the previous month. This takes the average asking price in the region to $919,460, snapping closely at the heels of the Auckland region.


In terms of demand, the Central Otago/Lakes District just made the Top 10 list, with a 5.9 per cent increase.


*Demand: the increase or decrease in the number of views per listing in that region, taken over a rolling three-month time frame, compared to the same three-month time frame the previous year – including the current month.

Glossary of terms

Being the only provider of real estate data in real time, realestate.co.nz offers valuable property market information not available from other sources.


Average asking price gives an indication of current market sentiment. Statistically, asking prices tend to correlate closely with the sales prices recorded in future months when those properties are sold. As it looks at different data, average asking prices may differ from recorded sales data released at the same time.

Inventory is a measure of how long it would take, theoretically, to sell the current stock

at current average rates of sale if no new properties were to be listed for sale. It provides a measure of the rate of turnover in the market.

New listings are a record of all the new listings on realestate.co.nz for the relevant

calendar month. As realestate.co.nz reflects 97 per cent of all properties listed through registered

estate agents in New Zealand, this gives a representative view of the New Zealand property market.

Demand: the increase or decrease in the number of views per listing in that region, taken over a rolling three-month time frame, compared to the same three-month time frame the previous year – including the current month.

Seasonal adjustment is a method realestate.co.nz uses to better represent the core underlying trend of the property market in New Zealand. This is done using methodology from the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research.

• Truncated mean is the method realestate.co.nz uses to provide statistically relevant asking prices.

The top and bottom 10 per cent of listings in each area are removed before the average is

calculated, to prevent exceptional listings from providing false impressions.

The NZ Transport Agency is advising motorists that the Northern Gateway Toll Road (SH1 between the Silverdale interchange and Puhoi) will be closed in both directions next week for important maintenance work.

 

The closure will affect the Johnstone Hill Tunnels and toll road in both directions on the nights of

Sunday, 10th September and Monday, 11th September 2017.

 

The maintenance work, which is dependent on fine weather, will be carried out between the hours of 10.00pm and 5.00am, when there are lower traffic volumes to minimise disruption to road users. 

 

Motorists are asked to follow the sign posted detour routes by using the Hibiscus Coast Highway between Puhoi and the Silverdale interchange. This will add approximately 15 minutes to journeys.

 

This work is an important part of the maintenance programme to ensure the Johnstones Hill Tunnels and the motorway is kept in a safe and resilient condition for all road users.

 

The Transport Agency apologises for any inconvenience and thanks motorists for their patience during the works.

연중 365일 고품격 문화예술 프로그램을 펼치는 인천국제공항이 본격적인 여름 휴가철을 맞이하여 더욱 색다르고 감각적인 공연을 선보인다. 매일 3회(15:30, 16:30, 17:30) 공연이 개최되는 밀레니엄홀은 여객터미널 일반지역 1층 중앙에 위치하여 출국 계획이 없더라도 방문할 수 있기 때문에 무더운 여름에 나들이 삼아 방문하기에 안성맞춤이다.
 
오는 15일부터 31일까지는 마술사 ‘문준호’를 초청하여 관객이 손을 움켜쥐게 하는 짜릿한 마술쇼를 선사한다. 문준호 마술사는 세계 3대 공연예술 축제인 ‘英 에든버러 페스티벌’에 한국인 최초로 초청된 바 있는 세계적인 마술사이며 스피드 일루션의 대가로도 손꼽힌다. 이번 인천공항 공연에서는 2D 그림을 3D 현실로 구현하는 디지털 드로잉부터 공중 부양마술, 카드마술 등 다양한 마술 레퍼토리와 함께 관객 참여코너를 마련하여 관람객을 환상의 마술 세계로 초대할 예정이다.

8월 중 몇몇 날짜에는 앞서 소개한 샌드아트 대신 공연시간을 달리하여 보다 인상 깊은 공연을 개최한다. 8일부터 24일까지 매주 화/목요일 14:00에는 한국 전통의 화려함과 깊이를 느낄 수 있는 ‘전통혼례 재현행사’가 개최된다. 본 행사는 어려운 전통혼례 절차를 극 형식으로 표현하여 관람객의 이해를 돕고 한국문화를 내·외국인에게 소개하는 뜻깊은 시간이 될 예정이다.
