9 February 2017 - IndianAutosBlog
Last month, Kia Motors unveiled the 2017 Kia Morning for South Korea and its Euro-spec version – the 2017 Kia Picanto.
The European version debuts at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show next month, but weeks prior, Autoblog.gr has published live images of the car clicked at a parking facility in Portugal.
The 2017 Kia Picanto features an evolutionary design with a more aggressive styling. On the outside, the all-new Picanto features headlamps with LED lighting, new Tiger Nose grille, wider lower grille, redesigned bumpers, a more raked back glass and new design wheels. 11 exterior colour choices will be available.
Being 3,595 mm-long, the all-new Kia Picanto has not grown in length, but its wheelbase has stretched by 15 mm to 2,400 mm. On the inside, the 2017 Kia Picanto features a new three-spoke steering wheel and redesigned dashboard, instrument panel, centre console and HVAC vents. There's a new free-standing infotainment system with navigation and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration compatibility.
The 2017 Kia Picanto is expected with a 65 bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder and 85 bhp 1.25-litre four-cylinder engines from the Hyundai i10 and the 99 bhp 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine from the 2017 Kia Rio.
The all-new Picanto will go on sale in Europe at the end of Q3 2017.
