Kia Motors Europe will unveil the enhanced Kia Picanto next month at the Geneva motor show.
The new car boasts redesigned front and rear bumpers to enhance the car's looks, as well as updates to the grille.
Buyers can now choose a new 14-inch alloy wheel design, and the inclusion of an optional sport pack is available for both three- and five-door variants.
A range of optional premium features are being introduced to the Kia Picanto for the first time, including the latest generation of Kia's AVN (audio-video navigation) system with a large 7.0-inch display screen (available from Q3). Customers can also specify a cruise control and speed limiter system to improve long distance comfort for the driver.
In addition, the enhanced model now offers a series of three interior colour packs, allowing owners to customise their Picanto.
The upgraded Picanto has received a series of small modifications to its 1.0-litre MPI (Multi-Point Injection) engine, ensuring the car meets strict Euro 6 emissions standards.
