What used Kia Picanto hatchback will I get for my budget?
The Picanto is still too new for us to be able to answer that question but, at the time of writing, prices start at around £6500 for an early example. That puts it roughly on a par with rivals such as the Skoda Citigo and cheaper than the Volkswagen Up and Hyundai i10.

How much does it cost to run a Kia Picanto hatchback?
Not too much, as you might expect. Fuel economy on the 1.0 is officially rated at 64.2mpg and it's 61.4mpg on the 1.25; those figures are, however, bettered by some super-efficient rivals. Steer clear of the automatic gearbox, which hammers the fuel consumption of the 1.25 engine it’s attached to. All Picantos, meanwhile, will cost you £140 a year to tax.
You shouldn’t find servicing costs too steep, either; Kia’s dealer servicing tends to be very reasonable. However, keep in mind that, once your car gets to three years old, there’s no special discounted servicing scheme at Kia dealerships like those you might find from other manufacturers.
