Facelifted Kia Picanto Spotted in Germany During a Video Shoot

Kia has made a mid-cycle facelift of the A-segment Picanto hatchback. A Korean blogger spotted it neat Frankfurt.

The camouflage-free car seems to be a hot GT version of the Picanto, given red accents in the front grille and side skirts. Kia made slight exterior updates. In particular, head- and fog lights are revised. Two-tone rims of the wheels appear to be new.

As  for the engines, expect a naturally aspirated 1.2-liter gasoline unit with 83 hp and 118 Nm (87 lb-ft) of torque, a 1.0-liter 3-cylinder 99-hp turbocharged one with 172 Nm (127 lb-ft), both with a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Too small for America, the Kia Picanto is a good choice for a European city dweller. The list of its competitors is wide enough and includes the Citro├źn C1, Toyota Aygo, Hyundai i10, Toyota Aygo, Renault Twingo.

The 2021 Kia Picanto should debut at the 2020 Paris Motor Show in October, if only the coronavirus will not affect.
