How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The Kia Picanto's driver's seat slides back a little farther than the Volkswagen Up's, and tall adults will find easily enough head and leg room to sit comfortably. The Dacia Sandero is a much bigger car overall, and the i10 is a little wider, but the Picanto won't leave you feeling hemmed in around the shoulders.

There's plenty of storage dotted around, including two cupholders between the front seats that are big enough for the largest of skinny mochaccinos, plus a tray for your mobile phone, and front door pockets big enough to hold a small water bottle.

Seat folding and flexibility

City cars don’t usually have clever seating tricks hidden up their wheel arches, and the Picanto's no different. Its rear seatbacks can be split in a 60/40 configuration, but there aren't any sliding or reclining seats like those you'll find in the similar-priced Suzuki Ignis

Nor is the front passenger seat height adjustable or available with lumbar support.
