Cape Town - Just after we published the first sketches of the third-generation Kia Picanto, we received an email from reader Jan-Nico Kleinhans querying why we only had renderings of the city car

Spotted in Cape Town CBD

It turns out that Kleinhans' friend Pieter Pentz had spotted the new A-segment hatch in Cape Town's CBD earlier in December and then Kleinhans saw it in Blouberg at night whilst it was being filmed.

Kia South Africa confirmed to Wheels24 that Kia motors Europe filmed their television commercial in the city.

Kleinhans said: "(It) looks awesome, especially those tail lights at night." 

The new car, due to be unveiled in 2017, looks different to the current generation. The exterior is dominated by edgy design details and a new assertive front grille. 

We can't wait to see those rear lights too.
