2023 KIA Picanto Rumors, Facelift Price, Latest News. The Picanto facelift will be sold across continents with a 7-year brand and 100,000-mile warranty
We first spied on the fresh KIA Picanto in January this year, when the highly camouflaged prototype was caught testing in the winter conditions. Now, about four months later, the Mini Hatch makes it the official Premier for the South Korean market.
In her home market, Picanto is known as Morning until now but the facelift brings the morning Urban moniker, which is more reflective of the change. Visually, you’ll easily be able to distinguish the updated model’s thanks to the slightly reformed front fascia with new LED lights and Sportier-looking bumpers. There is also modification of the Grille, while the fog lights get a new chrome Trim.
2023 KIA Picanto Powertrain
In terms of powertrains, there is only one machine available for the South Korean market– the naturally-secreted 1.0-liter gasoline unit, both for 75 horsepower (56 kilowatts) and 70 pound-feet (95 Newton-meter) of torque. It’s mated either for a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic gearbox.
Most body panels are hidden under wraps, but we expect the final product to carry a regular update consisting of redesigned front and rear bumpers. From the Spy shot, we see that there is a new tail lamp graphic while the headlights seem to be revised. The new exterior colors and possibly different alloy wheels should complement the styling outside.
Similar changes on the back, where we see updated backlights with new LED signatures, new horizontal reflectors, and small diffusers with integrated what we believe are fake dual Exhaust Tips. Other visual enhancements include new 16-inch wheels and additional chrome trim for the door.
Step into the cab and you’ll find new decorations, coupled with the latest infotainment system with an 8-inch display and a Bluetooth multi Connection function, which allows two Bluetooth devices to connect at the same time. There are also smaller 4.4-inch screens in the instrument cluster.
2023 KIA Picanto Facelift Interior
The 2023 Picanto Interior is partially enclosed, indicating that Korean cars will make some changes to the dashboard. If that’s one of those things that might be improved, then that’s the Infotainment system. We also expect cabins to bring new upholstery and decorations.
Since it should remain for sale for at least two to three years, Picanto that is facelifted may receive some tweaks focusing on improving fuel economy and reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Iterates out packs of three small gasoline engines in different outputs, paired to a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Some say that Picanto might turn into an electric vehicle, but it was planned for the fourth generation.
2023 KIA Picanto Price
Prices for Urban mornings in South Korea will start from 11,950,000 win, which is around $9,760 at the current exchange rate.
