I do love its turning circle and my automatic control.
Because I am very short certain things are difficult e.g. I can't reach the button to unloxck the petrol without opening the door and gwtting out.
It is also difficult to reach the bar whch moves the seat forwards from the seated position.
I find the headrestr imppossible - I need something much narrower.

Comfortable to drive (I suffer from a bad back),we'll appointed (gadget wise), air conditioning an excellent feature well worth the extra money and I like the design of the car....roomy inside yet the car itself is small and easy to park in small spaces.
Not really a bad point but I find the notification of the optimum time (for fuel economy I assume) of when to change up a gear a tad annoying and unecessary. It seems to indicate change up to 5th gear as soon as the speedo reaches 40mph regardless of whether you are travelling uphill or on the flat.I prefer to rely on my own judgement going by the sound of the engine and my own driving experience which goes back over 50 years.

As with many Kias, the latest version of the Picanto is far better quality than the car it supersedes – making it stronger competition for the likes of the Hyundai i10 and Ford Ka. Chunkier styling gives the small Kia a bolder, more premium look, while the interior is well laid out and looks expensive and classier. You can now get it with three or five doors, with the former looking sportier than the more practical latter. A longer body provides more space inside, too, and the boot is a lot bigger than before, offering significantly more luggage room. Both of the quiet petrol engines on offer give decent performance and overall driving experience is good, especially around town.
