Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Kia Picanto hatchback?

If a sweet small car with a long warranty is the sort of thing you’re looking for, the Hyundai i10 is a similarly strong contender. It only gets five years’ warranty to the Picanto’s seven, but the ride is softer and it handles just as well, so it should be on your shortlist.

We’re also big fans of the Skoda Citigo, which is just as good value as the Picanto. You don’t get the long warranty, but you do get impressive comfort and a smart interior – as well as some remarkably efficient engines.

Or if value is key, why not have a look at the Suzuki Celerio? Bland styling masks an incredibly practical city car, with remarkable amounts of space in the rear seats and boot, along with plentiful equipment. What's more, it’s very cheap to buy.
