Pakar Info - New Kia Picanto 2011 Pictures : The new Kia Picanto 2011 borrows the new look on the other Kia models, and we might say it suits the small car very well. Kia’s super mini will be unveiled in Geneva, in March 2011, but we can now tell that it will be a strong competitor – now that it finally has some good looks to offer.
The new Picanto 2011 is longer than the former generation, and is even wider, giving to the car a more “sure-footed stance”, says Kia’s Chief Designer Peter Schreyer. Judging from the first official pictures, he’s right – but we also dig the new grille and the much modern side line that now gives the new Picanto a sporty look.
Picanto will be available in 2011 in Europe with 4 powertrains: two variations of a 1.0 and a 1.2 petrol engines. These will be joined eventually by an LPG, bi-fuel and flex fuel engines for specific markets across the continent. The car will put an accent on small CO2 emissions and low fuel consumption, while not forgetting the fun factor, something new for Kia.
The new Picanto will come in two body styles: 3 and 5 doors, and three styling levels. We will find more in March 2011, at Geneva!
