What Car? says...
The Kia Picanto has become something of a rarity. That’s because it's a dinky city car that runs on petrol at a time when most of its rivals have either gone electric or been removed from sale altogether.
Why? Well, there simply isn't as much profit for manufacturers in building 'value' petrol cars anymore. They'd rather you shelled out thousands more on a small SUV, like the excellent Ford Puma, or an electric car, such as the latest Fiat 500.
