Kintyre GB Commuter
Fun to drive.
Fuel economy.
Lots of space for a small car.
Gets very hot inside on sunny days. Perhaps due to large black dashboard under windscreen.

I love the colour, the size, the visibility.
One drawback, if you leave the lights on when you turn off the engin there is no alert.

Leicester GB Recreational
Seat warming, auto lights, size equals easy parking and width means less likely to get supermarket dents. With seats down, surprisingly spacious for large goods. Have managed to transport a wheel barrow in the back!
After a year's use at less than 5000 miles the driver's seat belt does not retract fully. Really needs a sixth gear.

I have bought the picanto white this time,having had two picanto's previously. I love the look of it and the extra features .bluetooth,keyless entry and air con are great.The seats also seem more comfortable.I am 5ft 11 but I have plenty of leg room and also support under my thighs.The extra choices on the wipers is very useful.,and the twin exhaust finishes the cute sporty look.
The front door window design allows water to drop into the car when the windscreen jets are used,this has been the same on all models.The boot hatch design traps dust on the bumper and always looks dirty.

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.
