Kia Motors has released the first official photos of the next-generation Picanto, which comes with a "bolder, more mature and more self-confident look."
"Completely redesigned and re-engineered, the new car has grown in overall length and wheelbase, and is set to redefine its position as one of the most competitive vehicles in its segment," Kia said in a statement.
The Kia Picanto currently sold in the Philippines is 3,495mm long, 1,595mm wide and 1,480mm tall. Its wheelbase is 2,370mm.
Available Picanto units in the Philippines are equipped with a 1.0-liter engine. Kia said, however, that the "grown-up" Picanto will be offered in all-new powertrains whose gasoline-fed engines come in 1.0- and 1.2-liter displacements. The Korean carmaker said "LPG, bi-fuel and flex-fuel variations" will also be available depending on market requirements.
Kia has yet to announce the market release of the Picanto but the next-generation city car will be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
