First pictures of new Picanto revealed

First pictures of new picanto revealedKia has released the first official photos of the next generation Picanto city car, scheduled to make its world debut at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

Completely redesigned and re-engineered, the new car has grown in overall length and wheelbase and is likely to offer a more usable package in the city car segment.

Kia’s Chief Design Officer, Peter Schreyer, said, “In profile, new Picanto features significant sculpting and a very prominent rising character line. The result is a layering of light and shadow and this breaks up the height, giving the car a more sure-footed stance.”

While the current Picanto is available only as a five-door hatchback, the next generation version will be offered in a sportier three-door body style also.

The new Picanto will feature four all-new powertrains in 1.0 and 1.2-litre displacements with competitive CO2 emissions levels. In addition to the standard petrol engines, LPG, bi-fuel and flex-fuel variations will be available depending on local market requirements.
