New Kia Picanto to
debut at Geneva
THIS is the first look at the third-generation Kia Picanto which will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
It is one of Kia's global best-selling models and has been created by Kia's design centres in Namyang, Korea and Frankfurt, Germany.
The all-new model - revealed in Kia's sports-inspired GT Line specification - has a more assertive stance through bolder body lines and subtly sculpted surfaces.
It also features a longer wheelbase which pushes the wheels further out into each corner for a more confident appearance.
Inside, the new Picanto features is a modern new cabin design. At the heart of the cabin is a new "floating" touchscreen infotainment system, making the latest in-car technology available to driver and passengers.
Another bonus from the new Picanto is that it features more cabin and cargo space than many of its supermini rivals.
Kia says the new Picanto will go on sale shortly after the Geneva event and prices will be announced prior to that.
