All-New Picanto Revealed Engines Ahead of Geneva

The Korean automaker Kia has revealed that its new Picanto city car will be available with a total of four new engines. On top of that, Kia has also released the first official picture of the car's interior. The Picanto is going to have its world premiere at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show in March and it will go on sale across Europe this spring. Customers will have a choice of up to four powertrains, however, this will depend on individual markets.

This range includes three versions of the 1.0-liter, three-cylinder Kappa engine (gas, flex fuel and bi-fuel) and a single 1.2-liter four-cylinder gasoline Kappa engine. All of the above will be mated to a choice of five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmissions. The power outputs will be ranging from 69-horsepower to 85-hp, but Kia has revealed that the bi-fuel will generate some 82-hp. Prices haven't been published yet, but we can expect the announcement closer to the launch date.
