The wraps are off Kia's new Picanto, which goes on sale in June with prices starting at just over 8000.

Unlike the old model, the new Picanto will also be available as a three-door version. It's also longer than the car it replaces with an extended wheelbase for improved rear legroom.

Two petrol engines will be available, a 1.2-litre 84bhp engine that'll do 66mpg with CO2 at 100g/km and a super-frugal 3-cylinder 1.0-litre engine with 68bhp, 69mpg and 95 g/km of CO2.

Kia says that both engines are capable of running on LPG without conversion, which will bring emissions down to 90g/km of CO2.

The all-new interior is both stylish and well built for a budget car, while Kia is expecting a minimum four star Euro NCAP crash rating.
