Kia has released the first official photos of the next generation Picanto city car, scheduled to make its world debut at this year's Geneva Motor Show.

Redesigned and re-engineered, the new car, left, has grown in overall length and wheelbase and is likely to offer a more usable package.
Kia's chief design officer, Peter Schreyer, said: "In profile, the new Picanto features significant sculpting and a very prominent rising character line. The result is a layering of light and shadow and this breaks up the height, giving the car a more sure-footed stance. While the current Picanto is available only as a five-door hatchback, the next generation version will also be offered in a sportier three-door body style.

The new Picanto will feature four all-new powertrains in 1.0 and 1.2-litre displacements with competitive CO2 emissions levels. In addition to the standard petrol engines, LPG, bi-fuel and flex-fuel variations will be available depending on local market requirements.
