New Kia Picanto pictures

First interior shots and further details revealed of Korean firm Kia's all new supermini ahead of debut at the Geneva show debut.

Kia is hoping its new Kia Picanto will be the pick of the supermini bunch when it goes on sale in five-door guise in the UK in late Spring and, for the first time, as a three-door in the Autumn.

The hatchback is all-new from the ground up, and will make its debut alongside the new Kia Rio at the Geneva Motor Show in March. And now the company has revealed the Picanto’s interior, which features a dashboard shaped to mimic the 'tiger’s snout grille' that adorns the front of the car.

The top-spec car pictured also gets premium features like a multi-function steering wheel, heated seats and climate control; plus seat and dash trims that appear to be a big step up in quality over the previous generation car.

Under the Picanto’s bonnet will be a choice of 1.0-litre three-cylinder or 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engines, with power outputs ranging from 68bhp to 84bhp. A 74bhp 1.1-litre CRDi diesel will join the range after launch.

Some engines get stop start technology to save fuel, although Kia is yet to announce which, but the engine line-up does emit between 95 and 105g/km of C02, down from the current 114g/km for manual cars and 137g/km for the automatic.

The engines will be mated to a choice of either five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmissions, depending on model. Pricing for the UK will not be announced until closer to the launch date.
