First launched in 2004, the Kia Picanto is the Korean firm’s entry-level model and is a popular choice for many new car buyers thanks to its low starting price, generous equipment levels and compact dimensions.

The second-generation was launched in 2011 and incorporated the ‘Tiger Nose’ grille which is now present across the Kia range.

Its compact size and small turning circle make the Picanto perfect for city living and it’s also one of the best equipped in the segment with electric windows, remote central locking and air-con all standard-fit.

Available in the UK with either three- or five-doors, the new model is longer than the previous generation and as a result interior roominess and boot space has much improved.
