Kia Picanto Overview

The Picanto is Kia’s alternative to the mechanically similar Hyundai i10. They’ve made it look different, referencing the stylish Cee’d in the process, although the latest i10 provides a stern challenge. Unlike Hyundai, Kia offers a slighty sportier-looking three-door: it even has a red-framed grille, like you get on a VW Golf GTI. Overall, it’s a well-made, well-equipped, practical and affordable little thing that’s cheap to run and ought to put the wind up more expensive European cars. Kia has fought hard to overcome the brand prejudices that have held it back on the world stage. It’s now unquestionably succeeded in that regard, and the Picanto is worthy of close inspection as a result. Maybe even more so following a mild facelift last year. Changes were mild, but nicely round off what was already a nice car.
