The cheap and compact city cars are plenty in the market today and they have been hugely improved to take the “cheap” out of them and load them with features to make them desirable options to the otherwise impractical and large sedans that do not always get to places fast. The Kia Picanto despite its funky looks and competitive pricing has failed to impress the crowd into buying them. This changes in 2017 as the new Kia Picanto which promises to be funkier than its previous version, improved quality inside the cabin and longer wheelbase for added comfort and more spaciousness in the car.
There is a turbocharged 1.0L petrol engine, which is the most powerful ever fitted to a Picanto. There are 1.3L nonturbo and 1.2L petrol engines on offer. The turbocharged unit is the peppiest and powerful of the lot and should return some great economy figures. The car feels settled and the steering is light and the cabin is overall very quiet during the drive.
The car is a decent city car to drive and the GT version comes with larger wheels. The cabin quality is now upscale with more personality in the car with high-quality materials and personalization options. There is a circular theme going on the dashboard with a nicely done plastic dashboard with a 7-inch infotainment system that sits and fits the persona of the car very well. The car is more comfortable, sharper, and a nicer place to be at as well making this car a wonderful city car in its own right with practical boot space, nippy in traffic and with great features.
