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.

1.25
This four-cylinder petrol engine still has to be worked hard when you want a decent burst of acceleration and it’s a little boomy at high revs, but give it some beans and it&#39;s very peppy and much stronger than the entry-level 1.0. It’s not a great deal more expensive than the entry-level engine, so we reckon it’s well worth the extra. The five-speed manual ’box is slick, but the optional automatic is a little jerky at times.

Three-cylinder petrol is the one to go for if you’re buying through work because it benefits from the lowest CO2 emissions. However, it has to be worked very hard indeed, so in all other cases we’d go for the 1.25.
