Cape Town - The first renderings of Kia's third-generation Picanto have been released and the first thing we like is how good it looks. Granted, these are just sketches but it's a step forward from the current model for sure.  

Edgy and compact

Kia says the the new car combines a youthful and energetic new exterior and interior design with greater potential for customer personalisation. 

From the images it looks to have retained its compact dimensions. The automaker says it'll have 'bolder lines and a vibrant colour palette'.

Moving inside, the car will undergo a transformation with a new cabin design, 'high-tech' comfort, convenience,  and safety features.   We'll see the full reveal in early 2017.
