Superb facelifted Kia Picanto will be officially unveiled next month at the Geneva Motor Show. The announcement has been made by the company that has so confirmed rumours circulating for quite some time now. No images of the car are yet available.
Underhood arsenal sounds perfect for the facelifted Picanto as the car will run on a 1.0-liter MPI naturally aspirated gasoline engine that offers 69 bhp and which has been updated to corespond the latest Euro 6 emissions standards.
Magic continues on the inside too as the facelifted Picanto will benefit from chrome accents near the air vents and instrument binnacle, a new upholstery pattern and a revised center dashboard. Drivers can enjoy the optional Kia’s AVN (audio video navigation) system that packs a seven-inch touchscreen display.
Basically for Europe nothing changes as the Kia Picanto that will go on sale will have the same exterior aspect. However feature list promises to provide magic. Fresh 14-inch alloy wheels and an optional sport pack compatible with both three- and five-door body styles promise to increase the car’s confort level.
And good news don’t stop here as the 2015 Picanto will be available with larger front brakes measuring 252mm. Basically this will make the car stop from 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 37 meters.
