KIA PICANTO Hatchback 1.25 3 5dr

Cheaper versions of the Kia Picanto make the most sense, so there's no way we can recommend this expensive model.

Trim level

X-Line S
Comes with the rugged looks of X-Line, plus the plusher equipment levels of GT-Line S. It’s quite pricey, though.
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&#39;s upgraded headlights and tail-lights. We’d still go for 3 trim, though.
GT-line S
GT-Line S is one of the top trims. It has the same sporty look as GT-Line, along with the trinkets included on 3 trim, plus heated seats and a heated steering wheel, wireless phone charging, keyless entry, a sunroof and a dual-height boot floor. It’s certainly well furnished, but a little too pricey to fully endorse.
Our pick
3
This has everything you could realistically need while still remaining relatively affordable. The equipment bonanza includes 15in wheels, power-folding door mirrors, climate control, cruise control, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and a sliding front centre armrest. In addition, you get a great infotainment package with a 7.0in touchscreen, smartphone mirroring and sat-nav with live traffic updates, plus added safety with automatic emergency city braking.
GT-line
It&#39;s based on 2 trim, so GT-Line misses out on some of the upgrades that our favoured 3 trim gets. Instead, it comes with sportier styling and 16in wheels on the outside. Automatic emergency braking is also standard, along with power-folding door mirrors and privacy glass.
2
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.
1
Entry-level 1 trim is as bare as a derelict cottage, with not even air conditioning. It comes with steel wheels and the bog-standard infotainment system without Bluetooth, while there are some niceties, including 60/40 split folding rear seats, a trip computer, remote central locking and electric front windows.
