The Kia Picanto is one of the very best city cars, with a smart interior, tidy handling and decent practicality

Trim:

X-Line

This SUV-inspired trim adds more rugged styling on the outside, thanks to new bumpers, plastic arch mouldings and skid plates, as well as a slightly raised (by 15mm) ride height. It also has the larger 7.0in infotainment screen and safety tech (including automatic emergency braking) of 3 trim, along with the more expensive GT-Line's upgraded headlights and tail-lights. We’d still go for 3 trim, though.

Engine:

1.25

The best compromise between power and price. Not only is it much more comfortable with motorway work than the entry-level 1.0-litre, it’s smoother, too.
