Kia shows off its new Picanto city car

Kia has released images of the third-generation Picanto city car ahead of a full global reveal confirmed for early next year.

Kia says the new car "combines a youthful and energetic new exterior and interior design and greater potential for customer personalisation, inside and out."

The Korean brand has released an image of the new Picanto's cabin in overseas left-hand drive guise,  saying it has "a suite of high-tech comfort, convenience and safety features underscored by a modern and refined new cabin design with smarter packaging efficiency."

The baby Kia Picanto only arrived in Australia in April this year in its second-generation form, and is one of the cheapest cars on our market, currently priced at $14,990 driveaway for the 1.3-litre Si model with automatic gearbox.

The new generation car should arrive Down Under by the middle of next year.
