All new Kia Picanto



I don't think we'll ever see the new Picanto in the US, and it's too bad.

From these pictures, it does seem to have a real personality, and a modern design.
In Europe it will compete with cars like the Toyota Aygo. A smaller model than the Yaris not sold here.

The strongest engine is a 1.2 Liter with 85hp.
But thy are expecting an all new 1.0 Liter 3 cylinder with 80hp, and its 110hp turbo version for 2013.

"Front off the Toyota IQ"

So you don't see Smart in the IQ? And besides the front bumper came from the Sorento SX and Forte Koup.

Uhh, no. The only thing the iQ has in common with a Smart is both are sub-compact cars of similar size. The iQ does not look like a Smart.

This Kia front end however looks a lot like a Toyota, as does a Sorento and Forte. Hyundai loves to use Toyota styling cues.
