From South Korea we received the first official pictures of the refreshed Kia Picanto that was shared through Kia app.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]Kia was working on 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 TCi 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 and 14 km/l (33 MPG – 7,1 l/100km).

Looking at these pictures the new Morning shows a new front and rear bumpers with a newly designed fog lights, updated Tiger Nose front grille and alloy wheels. Inside we cannot see many changes, only a new infotainment system.

    Again a beautiful car by KIA. Well made. Im so into Kia , especially the new designed. Even this small car has more beauty and interiour quality than the new Mercedes, VW and further waste brands.
    Dont get me wrong Hyundai and japanese car fans but in my opinion these brands also have ugly cars (both exterior and interior).
    But as for KIA its the most beautiful brand with high quality materials.In addition its very maintenance friendly (good for me as hobby mechanic) and very practical e.g. the bottom before the rear seats are almost plain that you can put your feet to the ground easily if you sit in the middle. With the german and european brands these things are no more available. Ask yourself why: Greedy or lack of spirit or both?. I dont know and i dont care even more.They are lost somewhere. To me their thinking is a nightmare. Instead of waste so much money for self driving cars and much more waste like this that nobody needs, they should invest in clean car transmissions and cars that make customers life easier like the asians especially KIA do..Wont they or cant they. I dont know.

    Keep going and long live asian KIA.

    I must add that i had put the below rear lights right to left instead of above and beneath like on the upcoming new Sorento that had these ugly rear light too on the Sorento 2014. But im sure that the next picanto will have nice rear lights. Apart from that the front and the side is very good designed.

    KIA forever. Greetings by the TURK from Germany.
