Not long after unveiling the restyled Kia Rio, the company has once again launched the restyled Picanto. The difference between the current model and the restyled model is visible but not by much. This is due to its slightly reshaped front fascia with new LED headlights and a sportier-looking bumper. There are also modifications to the grille, while the fog lamps gain new chrome trim. The rear end is not left out as we see updated taillights with new LED signature, new horizontal reflectors, and a tiny diffuser with integrated what we believe are fake dual exhaust tips.
The interior adds improved infotainment screens and new customization options. A larger 8.0-inch touchscreen display with satellite navigation is now paired with a high-resolution 4.2-inch digital display in the instrument cluster. Features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard (depending on the region). The seats are either in black cloth or synthetic leather and features an upgraded package. Customers can choose new optional interior colour packs such as the Lime Pack, Orange Pack, Red Pack and Green Pack.
The engine remains the same but it has now been improved to offer better economy. The engines include a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder 66hp and a 1.0-litre T-GDi turbo making 99hp. These engines comes with a new Integrated Thermal Management System which is cleaner than the previous model. The 2021 Picanto is mated with a new 5-speed automated manual transmission or the regular 4-speed automatic gearbox. All the latest safety features are now included like Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Warning, and Lane Following Assist.
