Kia's Picanto City Car Spied in Facelifted Form


Read more

The second-gen Picanto is already in its third year in the market and Kia wants to keep it relevant for another couple of years before it replaces it, with a facelift.

Kia did a fine job covering the new styling touches on the prototype, as the only things peeking out from the camouflage are the revised headlamp clusters, but it's suffice to say that it should get refreshed nose along with some changes to the rear section such the lights and bumper designs.

Being that the Koreans also had the city car's dashboard placed under covers, there may be some styling upgrades in store for the interior as well.

We don't expect any changes to the Picanto's powertrain lineup.
