KIA Picanto review

NGC verdict 07.09.2011

Kia's new Picanto looks sharp and modern but the driving experience feels from a previous generation. Working the three-cylinder 1-litre engine to achieve reasonable performance, even when the car is lightly laden, spoils the refinement and hammers the fuel consumption.

On the plus side there's no road tax to pay, or London congestion charge, and you can carry five, thin adults around town. Compact size and good all-round vision mean parking is easy. Remainder of seven year/ 100,000 mile warranty can be passed on to the next owner so should help second hand values.
