My last car was a Picanto vr7 .The sr7 is
a much improved vehicle .Engine,steering and fuel economy.
The Hankook tyres are very noisey and
rumble for 150 miles , till they bed in.The SR7 had Kumho tyres fitted which were quite ,so i probably noticed the difference .

Loving having a small car again, my 3rd Kia!
Fab to be able to park anywhere.
For a city car it looks good out here in the country
No ice indicator or outside temperature
Would be good if radio volume automatically reduced when in reverse so I can hear the sensors

Good interior, the best of any similar size car we considered before purchasing the Picanto. Capable on the motorway; keeps up with the traffic comfortably. Purchased as a second car but now use it as the family car!
Have to downshift more than I expected going up steep hills - although you soon get used to that.

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.
