Kia Picanto 2011 tampil premier pada Geneva Motor Show 2011 yang dihelat hingga 13 Maret .  Hatchback andalan manufaktur mobil asal negeri Ginseng ini menyajikan tampilan yang lebih modern, impresif dan gahar.

Kia Picanto sekarang menjadi mobil kecil yang bertambah dewasa,” komentar Soon-Nam Lee, Direktur Pemasaran Luar Negeri, Kia Motors Corporation. “Kami mengantisipasi bahwa permintaan global untuk segmen mobil ini akan berada di wilayah 2,4 juta unit per tahun dalam enam tahun ke depan. Kami yakin Picanto baru akan memungkinkan Kia untuk meraih pangsa lebih besar di segmen ini,” tegasnya.

Tidak seperti generasi sebelumnya yang hanya tersedia hatchback lima pintu, Picanto baru akan ditawarkan dalam pilihan varian 5-pintu dan 3-pintu.

Selain itu terdapat 4 pilihan mesin Kappa. Tiga versi mesin 1.000 cc, 3-silinder (bensin, flex fuel dan bi fuel) serta 1 pilihan 1.200 cc, 4-silinder. Tenaga yang diletupkan antara 69-85 hp dan torsinya 94-121 Nm. Emisi gas buang, diklaim, tereduksi besar-besaran menjadi 95-105 gr/km. Konsumsi bahan bakar dari 4,2- 5,9 liter per 100 km. Mesin-mesin ini akan dipadu dengan  pilihan transmisi otomatis 4-speed atau manual 5-speed
