storage space close at hand.

When you have places to go, it stands to reason you’ll have things to take with you.

no problem with the new picanto. take them along all tidied away.

60:40

Because your gear comes in all shapes and sizes.

the 60/40 split rear seat back is ideal when you need to carry unusual-shaped items (while still

letting you carry three people of course). When it comes to sizeable loads, you can fold down

both rear seats and make use of the extra space.

under the tailgate there’s 200 litres of luggage space – so your bags and shopping items are taken care of.

Fresh Engine Choices

2011 kia picanto engine

Though the engines are humble, they for sure serve the purpose for the new Picanto. Buyers will have a choice of 1.0L and a 1.2L gasoline engine; basically same as what we see on the Hyundai i10.

Both the variants come with Kia’s class-leading CO2 emissions levels that are lesser than any of its rivals, helping make the world a better place to live!

Sources have it that the cleanest of Picanto engine this year, will not spew out anything more than 100g/km. Now with such an environment friendly emission, the model for sure is set to rock the go-greener segment of users.

Total of 4 engine variants is what teh brand promises with the 2011 Picanto edition. Along with a regular petrol engine, we are also likely to see LPG, bi-fuel and flex-fuel versions this year.

Drivetrain Options

Depending on the engine specifications, a five speed manual or a four speed automatic gearbox will be offered.

profileThe drive was stable and controlled with a lot more power in the Kappa 1.0 engine than I would have guessed. I even couldn’t recognize that I’m driving A-segment. The noise level in the cabin was low and vastly improved upon.

Here’s a video clip we recorded to show you the engine room and Kappa engine’s sound.

It was a great ride and we hope you all enjoy the driving experience with the all-new Picanto as much as I did – once it becomes available in your countries. The next generation Picanto will be officially unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2011. Here’s a quick video of our drive around town!
