Kia has released the first pictures of its new Picanto. It is slightly larger than the outgoing car and will be available in both three- and five-door body styles for the first time.
The new styling features sculpted body sides to give a 'more surefooted stance'. Kia describes the new design as giving a 'bolder, more mature and more self confident look'.
Power comes from all new 1.0- and 1.2-litre petrol engines. Depending on local market requirements LPG, bi-fuel and flex-fuel versions will also be offered.
The new Picanto will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on 2 March. An Irish market launch date has yet to be announced.
