    "Fabulous car"



    I love my picanto. It does everything you need from a car. It moves when you need it to and you don't feel vulnerable on the motorway in it like you do in some small cars. Adults and older children fit in the rear with ample leg room. New model has3 rear seatbelts. Medium dog crate plus two teenage boys easily fit in due to 60/40 split in seat. Seats fold down flat giving lots of space. It come with iPod adapter. My model has air con. It's economical and cheap to run. Ride is comfortable. Boot is good for the size of car. It's a great little car with the security of 7 year warranty. What more could you want.

    "You get what you pay for"



    Great value for money, lots of positives but major drawback is that there are only 2 seats in the back. It isn't a joy to drive and personally would rather spend extra and get a different small car with turbo diesel if possible.

    "Great value motoring"



    I have recently downgraded to a Kia Picanto from a large Kia sportage and I couldnt be happier. It took a couple of weeks to get used to the smaller car but it has already saved me an absolute fortune. I have reduced my fuel costs by two thirds, It has free road tax and my insurance is almost half the price!
    There isnt a lot of space in the boot if you still need a big pram but I can easily fit a Quinny Zapp buggy in there along with a weeks shopping.
    Another bonus is the parking, You can fit this car into almost any space (even if you are rubbish at parking like me!)
    The Kia Picanto even comes with a 7 year warranty so you dont need to worry about costly repairs.
