The Kia Picanto has won the ‘Used City Car’ award in the What Car? Used Car of the Year 2022 awards.
Small but mighty, the Kia Picanto is designed to get into those tight spaces yet keep power at the forefront of every drive. First introduced to the market in 2004, this compact city car received praise for its wallet-friendly running costs and spritely exterior design.
Ensuring that compact doesn’t mean uncomfortable, Kia has kitted out this model with richly fabricated seating and a well implemented suspension. Driving is smooth and responsive and with a range of economically minded engines on offer. The 66bhp 1.0-litre petrol engine, for example, is well suited to both city streets and country lanes.
There is plenty of equipment on offer across this range, with many vehicles featuring hill-start assist, auto headlights, electric front windows and radio with full USB and AUX connectivity. Other features available across the varying trim levels include heated mirrors, a rear-parking camera and six-speaker audio system.
