City cars sell extremely well in the UK, and that’s the reason you’ll find most manufacturers offering one. Kia’s is the Picanto, which goes head to head with rivals such as the Hyundai i10, Seat Mii, Skoda Citigo, Suzuki Celerio and Volkswagen Up.
Of course, cars all focus on giving buyers in this market exactly what they want: seriously cheap motoring, but without compromising on too much space, quality or decent driving characteristics.
The Picanto available with a choice of three small petrol engines, a manual or automatic gearbox, and five doors only.
City cars may be cheap to buy, but nobody wants to waste their money, so does the Picanto prove well-rounded enough to see off its best rivals?
