KIA showed a restyled Picanto for the car market in Europe. The planned update “refreshed” the appearance and interior of the hatchback, added technology and presented 3 new engines.

The exterior of the Picanto has changed significantly. In addition to new body shades and rims, the new model has acquired other bumpers, an improved radiator grille in the corporate style of the “tiger nose” and LED lighting.

Inside, it is worth noting the presence of a new infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In particular, the Korean company decided to use better materials for finishing the updated model, and also provide customers with enhanced personalization options.

 The most significant changes have occurred in the engine line. Now the family Smartstream dominates there, which is represented by atmospheric engines with a volume of 1.0 and 1.2 liters with a capacity of 66 and 83 hp. respectively, and another 1.0-liter 99-horsepower turbo engine with a new injection system and improved cooling system. Together with the engines, a new 5-band automatic transmission functions.

 The updated KIA Picanto in Europe will be available in the third quarter of this year. The Korean company will open the cost and configuration later.
