- New Kia Picanto officially revealed
- Sports a more aggressive design than its predecessor
- Makes its public debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show
- Believed to go on sale in spring 2017
The upcoming Kia Picanto city car has been officially revealed before it goes on sale in spring 2017. We’ll get a better chance to see this small hatchback in the metal at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.
The old car’s cheery upturned grille has been replaced by a wide, angular item and a pair of scowling headlights that give it a far more aggressive look. The rear has been treated to a more subtle nip and tuck but new brakelights, reflectors and a twin-exit exhaust should help it stand out from the outgoing model.
Kia’s keenness to coat its new Picanto with red trim continues inside. Not only do the seats sport thick red panels but the doors boast bright striped decals, too. If subtle colour combinations are your thing, we expect a range of more understated schemes to be available when this car goes on sale.
