Kia Picanto 1.0 2

Week ending July 29

Mileage: 1000
Driven this week: 50 miles

I jumped from driving a Porsche Cayman R this week into the latest addition to our long-term test fleet, the Kia Picanto. It was quite a shock, but not in the way you may imagine.

The stripped-out Porsche doesn't even have a radio in efforts to save weight, but the little Picanto seems well equipped for a sub-£10k car. Kit such as electric mirrors, MP3 connection, steering wheel-mounted controls, alloys and air-con are all standard on our Picanto. It also has Bluetooth and the set-up process is a lot more straightforward than some in more expensive cars.
