Kia has released the first teaser images of the 2012 Picanto, ahead of its debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Styled at the company's European design studio, the new Picanto promises "to stand out from the crowd" by "exuding self confidence, solidity and maturity." Furthermore, it will be available in three- and five-door configurations.

Under the hood, we can expect two petrol engines to be offered. The 1.2-liter four-cylinder will produce 77 hp (57 kW / 79 PS), while the 1.0-liter three-cylinder churns out 68 hp (51 kW / 69 PS).

No word on pricing, but the 2012 Picanto will start arriving at UK dealership next spring.
