All-new Kia Picanto city car: bolder and longer.

04 January 2011: Kia Motors Corp. released today its first official photos of the next generation Picanto city car, prior to its reveal at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show in March.

The South Korean auto manufacturer also announced that the new Picanto will be available in two body styles with a bolder look and four all-new powertrains.

Completely redesigned and re-engineered, the new Picanto has grown in overall length and wheelbase. Kias 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.
