Scanned photos of the refreshed Kia Picanto have surfaced online.

These pictures have been taken from a leaked dealer brochure and show the vehicle has been equipped with new bumpers, redesigned fog lights, modified front grille and new alloy wheels. The interior appears to be identical to the pre-facelift version.

The big news for the 2015 Kia Picanto is the new 1.0-liter turbo petrol engine. It is based on the 1.0-liter unit with 69 HP (51 kW) of the Hyundai i10 and previous Picanto but now comes with 106 HP (78 kW). The average fuel consumption is rated at 7.1 l/100 km.

The model could be introduced during the Geneva Motor Show in March this year.
