Sketches released before Christmas of the new Kia Picanto have now been followed by photos of the car itself.

The third-generation version of the city car will make its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show on 7th March and then go on sale during the Spring of 2017.

According to its creators the new Kia Picanto is designed to present a more assertive, distinctive look in its sector, with bolder body lines and sculpting to its surfaces.

The car measures up at exactly the same overall length as its predecessor, 3595mm, but has a 15mm longer wheelbase at 2400mm. This has the effect of pushing the wheels further into the corners of the car. Combined with a shorter front but longer rear overhang it both frees up greater interior space and emphasizes the Picanto’s looks.

   

Kia is also highlighting the new interior design which is said to be more efficiently packaged with a dash boasting a ‘floating’ touchscreen entertainment system.

Powertrain details are still to be revealed, and the new Picanto will be sold as a five-door model only, reflecting the decline in popularity of three-door versions among buyers. The car is shown in Kia’s sporty-look GT Line trim level and new, bold paint options will also be available.
