Entry-level 1 trim is as bare as a derelict cottage, with steel wheels and no air conditioning. However, you do get 60/40 split-folding rear seats, a trip computer, remote central locking and electric front windows.
Move up to a 2 model and you get more of what you might expect in a modern car, including 14in alloy wheels, electrically adjustable door mirrors, air-con, all-round electric windows and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.
But we reckon 3 is the trim to go for. The equipment bonanza includes 15in alloy wheels, power-folding door mirrors, climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and a sliding front centre armrest. It doesn’t stop there, either, because you also get a great infotainment package (see infotainment section).
SUV-inspired X-Line trim gets 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 gets a bespoke equipment list: the larger 7.0in infotainment screen and automatic emergency city braking of the 3 trim, but the even more expensive GT-Line's upgraded headlights and tail-lights. We’d still stick with 3 trim, though.
GT-Line is based on the 2 trim, so it misses out on some of the upgrades that our favoured 3 trim gets, but it comes with sportier styling and 16in alloy wheels, plus power-folding door mirrors and privacy glass.
Range-topping GT-Line S trim comes with the same sporty look as regular GT-Line, but adds trinkets including heated seats, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry, a sunroof and a dual-height boot floor. It makes the Picanto very pricey, though.
