New Kia Pi­canto to de­but at Geneva

South Wales Echo - - MOTORS -

THIS is the first look at the third­gen­er­a­tion Kia Pi­canto which will make its de­but at the Geneva Mo­tor Show in March.

It is one of Kia’s global best-sell­ing mod­els and has been cre­ated by Kia’s de­sign cen­tres in Namyang, Korea and Frank­furt, Ger­many.

The all-new model – re­vealed in Kia’s sports-in­spired GT Line spec­i­fi­ca­tion – has a more as­sertive stance through bolder body lines and sub­tly sculpted sur­faces.

It also fea­tures a longer wheel­base which pushes the wheels fur­ther out into each corner for a more con­fi­dent ap­pear­ance.

In­side, the new Pi­canto fea­tures is a mod­ern new cabin de­sign. At the heart of the cabin is a new “float­ing” touch­screen in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem, mak­ing the lat­est in­car tech­nol­ogy avail­able to driver and pas­sen­gers.

Another bonus from the new Pi­canto is that it fea­tures more cabin and cargo space than many of its su­per­mini ri­vals.

Kia says the new Pi­canto will go on sale shortly af­ter the Geneva event and prices will be an­nounced prior to that.
