The Kia Picanto is a fine small car, with a smart interior, tidy handling and, if you pick the 1.25 MPi 83 engine, decent performance and economy. A Hyundai i10 is a bit more polished in terms of ride and refinement, though.get the best price
This trim has more of what you might expect on a city car these days. It adds 14in alloy wheels, electrically adjustable door mirrors, air-con, Bluetooth, electric windows all round, a leather trimmed steering wheel and gearknob, as well as driver’s seat-height adjustment.
The best compromise between power and price. It's peppy, but not only is it much more comfortable with motorway work than the entry-level 1.0-litre, it’s smoother, too. We managed just under 40mpg on mixed roads in our test. It's the engine we recommend.
