After an announcement made a month ago, Kia has introduced the Picanto facelift today in Geneva.

Joining the SPORTSPACE concept and cee'd GT Line, Kia's cute Picanto city car has received a mid-cycle refresh featuring mild cosmetic updates and an optional exterior sport pack available for both 3- and 5-door models. The main attraction inside the cabin is an optional audio video navigation (AVN) system which has a 7-inch touchscreen display.

Other changes implemented include a speed limiter, cruise control, new cabin color themes, fresh upholsteries and chrome accents for the air vents and instrument binnacle. Kia is also adding some new 14-inch alloys and optional larger 252mm front brakes compared to the standard 241mm discs. The engineers have also revised the 69 bhp 1.0 MPI engine which now meets Euro 6 regulations.

Built at home in South Korea, the Kia Picanto facelift will go on sale in Europe towards the end of the month.
