"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.

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.
