Wasn't looking forward to down sizing my car but this car has made it easy. I love the fact it's so high spec inside and performance round the city centre is great. Please test drive one and see how fun it is to handle, you won't be disappointed with the roomy feel inside the car and ease of parking.

No tax, easy on the petrol, and easy to park. Looks cute.
Boot is small but I can live with that.

Too small, very small boot and very tight for people sitting in the back seats. Used to a 1.4 litre Jazz but purchased a 1 litre and its was too slow. 1st gear sounds like the car is struggling and engine doesnt sound healthy fine in other gears though.

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.
