Kia has announced the redesigned Picanto will be available with four "super-efficient" engines when it goes on sale later this year.
While detailed specifications won't be revealed until the Geneva Motor Show, the Picanto will be offered with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine (in petrol, flex fuel and bi-fuel guises) as well as a 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol. Outputs will range from 69 (51 kW / 69 hp) to 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp), while torque numbers vary from 94 (69 lb-ft) to 121 Nm (89 lb-ft). More specifically, the 1.0-liter bi-fuel engine produces 82 PS (60 kW / 81 hp) and 94 Nm (69 lb-ft) of torque.
Regardless of what engine is selected, it will be mated to a five-speed manual or a four-speed automatic. This enables the car to have low CO2 emissions that range from 95 to 105 g/km (90 and 100 g/km with the optional engine start/stop system).
