Kia has released the first sketches of the new Kia Picanto city car, which is expected to make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

While revealing little in detail about the car at this point, the brand says that it will retain its compact size but be better packaged and with a bolder look – the sketches show a strong family resemblance to the new Rio supermini that launches early in 2017.

According to its creators the new Picanto will also offer a ‘youthful and energetic exterior and interior design’, with more options to personalise the car as is currently the market trend. The latest technology is also promised as part of the cars specification.

Kia Picanto-2017-interiorHaving been one of the first A-segment cars to offer a five-door variant alongside the traditional three-door, in its third-generation version the Picanto will follow the industry trend, being sold in five-door form only and reflecting a general dropping off in popularity for small three-door models.

   

No details regarding powertrains have yet been released – these will be revealed closer to the car’s launch. The new Picanto is expected on sale in the second half of 2017.
