New Car: 2012 Kia Picanto

Meet the new Kia Picanto! The new supermini is the latest to receive Kia’s new family look, and will make its debut in production form at the Geneva Motor Show in March alongside the all-new Rio.

The new supermini is completely new from the ground up, and will be offered as a five-door in most markets, while the UK and Europe will also get the option of a sportier-looking three-door hatchback.

Kia describes the newcomer’s look as “bolder, more mature and more self confident.” Just like the Korean firm’s latest offerings, the Picanto gets more elaborately sculpted flanks, intricate lights and a tiger’s snout grille.

The new Picanto will feature four all-new engines in 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre displacements, which the firm claim boast class-leading 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.

The exact timing of the car’s arrival in the UK market is yet to be decided. For more details click here.
