What’s new in Kia Picanto 2021
The new Picanto arrived in EU USA without official announcement. The compact is outdated in mechanics despite its thought-provoking and robust look.
With a 4-speed automatic transmission and 1.0 12V flex-aspirated engine, it equals mechanics only with the New Toyota Etios.
But not everything is outdated with the New Kia Picanto 2021 . Although it is still 3.6 meters long, it is 1.5 cm larger in wheelbase and 1 cm more in rear swing.
