We are used to thinking of small cars as cute. However, this is not always the case – and here is another example in the form of an updated KIA Picanto car, spy images of which recently appeared online.

It is worth noting that KIA Picanto had a rather progressive and youthful appearance before, but now it generally looks brutal. Here, compare: before (white car) and after (gray car). By the way, please note that in both cases the KIA Picanto GT-line version is depicted.

Attention is immediately drawn to headlights with several units installed vertically – this solution is reminiscent of the KIA EV9. In addition, the headlights are connected by a light line. A similar solution was used for the rear of the KIA Picanto: new lights connected by a red element. In addition, the front bumper and radiator grille have changed, and the imitation diffuser has become even larger in the rear bumper.

Against the background of a radical change in exterior design, changes in the interior of the KIA Picanto are barely noticeable. However, they are there: at a minimum, a digital instrument panel will appear. It is also possible to install a larger central touch display. For example, an image is provided: before (first photo) – after (second photo).

Technical changes are currently unknown. It is certain that the updated car will retain a pair of 1-liter engines: naturally aspirated with a capacity of 67 hp or 100 hp turbo. The drive is always front-wheel, but you can choose among the gearboxes: traditional manual or a simple automated one with one clutch.
