Kia has released the engine details of the all new Picanto, which will go one sales later this year.
While detailed specifications won't be revealed until the Geneva Motor Show, the Picanto will be offered with four efficient powerplants. The smaller 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine will be made available in petrol, flex fuel and bi-fuel guises. A larger 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine is also available. Outputs will range from 69 hp to 84 hp, while torque numbers vary from 94 to 121 Nm. More specifically, the 1.0-liter bi-fuel engine produces 81 hp and 94 Nm of torque. All engines will be mated to a five-speed manual or an optional four-speed automatic.


This little Kia is rather green as well, with CO2 emissions that range from 95 to 105 g/km. With the optional engine start/stop system, these figures go down to 90 - 100 g/km.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

It looks nice....much better than the current model. But I feel KIA could have done more with the rim for the concept car instead of using one that looks like Alfa's.

actually, i thought a 3 cylinder engine will never ever be efficient?

A 3 cylinder engine for a city car is just about right given the usage conditions are generally below 100km/h and more start/stop traffic. How do you think the Toyota Aygo with a 3 cylinder VVT-i engine can be Toyota's second most efficient car after the Prius?

The design concept and engine variations are basically a tweaked version of the Toyota Aygo and its siblings, Pug 107 and Citroen C1.
