Kia's revamped supermini!

By CheeJun on 14 Jan 2011

Another new offering from Kia.. The old Picanto which looked like one of the worst superminis ever to have driven on the face of the Earth looks THIS good! Better still, theres going to be a 3 door option which will stick well with all its sporting pretensions. No matter what people say about the brand, this is a great looking supermini.

It will make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March alongside the Rio which will also have a new look. This is no concept as it is shown here in its full production glory. Kia says that this new Picanto is "bolder, more mature and self confident" and I totally agree with that statement. It all started with the Cerato Forte and that grille which has sown its seed into the other range of models from Kia like the Sorento. And its just not the grille, it looks like the designers at Kia have finally got their act together and destroyed the pantry in the office and got down to work on making good looking cars. In the past, they looked flimsy, plain and 'unappetizing' but this has the recipe for a winning supermini.

Under the hood lies a perky 1.0 litre or a 1.2 litre engine and Kia claims that they boast class leading CO2 emission standards.

With the COE prices soaring at its current state, I'm pretty sure that this car will be rather popular over here due to its affordability and increasing quality standard.
