I love my new Picanto.

When I was looking into buying the car I did a lot of research into safety as a mum it was very important for my car to be as safe as it could be, whilst still being affordable and stylish. Safe to say I was impressed with the scores and crash test videos, and bought my car :)

It is a small car but it doesn't feel cramped at all. It's got 5 doors and plenty of leg and height room (even in the back) and the boot is very substantial too.

The drive is good and its a nippy little car and sticks to the road well.

I was really quite impressed with the quality and clarity of the speakers when using the Bluetooth.

All round, I am very happy with my little car.

The only thing I think lets it down is the lack of storage options, but it is a little car, so not a deal breaker :P

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.
