From South Korea we received last spy shots of the refreshed Kia Picanto that was spotted with a totally front end, side and rear covered under camouflage.

Kia is preparing a light facelift of its mini-car and apart from a small makeover it will be available for the first time with a Turbo engine.

Kia finally decided to add its small three-cylinder turbo engine from the Kappa family. This new engine is based on the 1.0-liter 69 hp used on the Picanto and Hyundai i10, but thanks to the Turbo addition obtained 106 hp. 

Looking at these pictures we can’t see many changes, only a new design alloy wheels. The Picanto is well camouflage but we can still see a new front grill, probably close to the latest Kia design.
