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.
