All-new Kia Picanto revealed ahead of Geneva debut

All-new Kia Picanto revealed ahead of Geneva debut

Kia has taken the covers off an all-new version of the Picanto. The popular city car has been unveiled to European media ahead of its public debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show next month. The new Picanto will go on sale across Europe from Q2 2017.

Now in its third-generation, the Picanto brings a new design, better driving dynamics and more features into what has already been a capable city car package. With the wheelbase extended to 2,400 mm (an increase of 15mm), the wheels have been pushed further out to the corners of the car for a 25mm shorter front overhang, making the car look sportier.

In Europe, three petrol engines will be available to buyers. The 1.0-litre and 1.25-litre naturally-aspiratet engines have been carried over from the outgoing Picanto. Later in the year, Kia’s new 1.0-litre turbo motor will also be available. All engines are paired with a five-speed manual transmission, delivering power to the front wheels. The 1.25-litre engine is also available with a four-speed automatic transmission. The 1.0-litre turbo motor produces 100bhp and 172Nm torque.

Kia has sold over 1.4 million units of the current-generation Picanto since its launch in 2011. The brand is looking forward to replicate the sales performance with this new model which will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
