What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For Lots of car for the money; spacious and well equipped

Against Tiny boot; sluggish performance; choppy ride

Verdict Hard to fault, other than the fact that it's not a great drive

Go for… 1.1 LX

Avoid… 1.0 models

Kia Picanto Hatchback
  • 1. It's a remarkably big little car: six-footers will have no problem travelling in the back
  • 2. Residual values aren't great, so there are some good deals to be had on used cars
  • 3. Owners have complained that the impressive official fuel consumption figures are extremely hard to match in everyday driving
  • 4. The boot is tiny - it's certainly not big enough for a family
  • 5. Go for the 1.1-litre engine - the 1.0-litre is just a little too underpowered
