3 Things To Watch Out For About The 2017 Kia Picanto
If you’re excited about what’s in store for us in the new Kia Picanto, then you’re in for a treat. The South Korean automaker just released the first teaser sketches of the new generation Picanto, and it looks nothing like the current model.
Here are the top three things to watch out for in the 2017 Kia Picanto according to a report:
1. The Focus Is On The Younger Generation
It looks like the Picanto will have a “livelier” exterior that will attract the younger generation (millennials) more. The Picanto is Kia’s smallest car, a crucial segment in the auto industry because smaller sedans are usually the first cars for college students and young urbanites. This third-generation Picanto is coming out with a few surprises up its sleeve—for one, it will have a larger dimension and it will have a completely different design from the outside to the interiors.
2. More Enticing Than The Current Model
A few months ago, Kia introduced the new generation Rio subcompact, a truly critical phase for the brand because this is a fiercely competitive segment. Now that it’s ready to come out with the new Picanto, it came with guns blazing. The current Picanto is nothing to talk about, which makes the new one a future talk-of-the-town. Apparently, the new model is going to have a more dynamic A-segment model, which makes it more enticing than its predecessor.
3. A Mix And Match Of GT Line And Rio
The rendering of the new Picanto is a bit of a mix and match. On the exterior, it looks like the dual exhaust tips, bigger alloys, and fresh bumpers are based on the flagship GT Line version. Inside, the cabin is modeled after the 2017 Rio. Most noticeable in the cabin are the two circular instrument cluster dials and a digital round screen. Even the steering wheel looks similar to the same unit found in the Rio.
There should be a couple of power options—either an engine producing 100 horsepower or one that gives out 120 horsepower. If Kia wants to offer affordability, they can go to a naturally-aspirated gasoline engine options.
