2017 Kia Picanto : New edition debuts at the Geneva Autosalon 2017
Now Kia has presented a new model Kia Picanto GT-Line. The next generation of the popular city car, new 2017 Kia Picanto will debut to the public at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
More sturdy Design
They show the little Korean in the sport GT-Line. The sleek design was also developed at Kia’s Frankfurt Design Center. Striking are parallels to the new Rio (about in the side window line), but also to the great Optima (at the front part). At the rear, however, the new Picanto still reminds most of its predecessor. However, the rear screen does not reach as far down. A little wider C-pillars make the new Picanto at the rear end of the body no longer look as hacked as before.
Hardly growing, yet more spacious
A surprise is the constant length of 3.59 meters. The wheelbase grows slightly to 2.40 meters, which is a plus of 15 millimeters. According to Kia, the new Picanto will outstrip various competitors in terms of space and luggage space. We are looking forward, so far fit only 200 liters with full seating in the trunk. The striking cockpit is striking: both the freestanding touchscreen and the specially designed controls of the automatic climate control can be found in a very similar form in the new Kia Rio. Of course, both elements will be subject to demand, but also here the rearmament in the small-car segment is evident. Different color versions are also available for the interior.
Premiere in the spring of 2017
Kia is still covered with the engines of 2017 Kia Picanto GT-Line, so far there are two suction cylinders in the Picanto: a three-cylinder with 66 PS and a four-cylinder with 85 PS. The new Picanto will be presented at the Geneva Motor Show in early March 2017, and it will be launched in the second quarter of the year.
