KIA Picanto is small, but practical. It's great around town, but if you really need to, you can drive it longer distances too. KIA Picanto GT-Line is the somewhat more sporty looking variant of the regular Picanto, but in my opinion it is too expensive. Better pick lower trim, and save yourself some money.

      Ordered a white picanto GT- line 1.25 today and pick it up on Thursday.
      I must say the car looks far better in the flesh and even better in pearl white.

      Marek Drives Yeah good point im just so mad about The prices here. You can get a bmw 420, for the same price as a m5 in germany 😭😭 so it’s still super expensive to buy a car if you are a student

      If they give the car for free, but it is unsafe to drive, people need to know. This is a budget car, but that does not mean it is faultless. Yes, one can turn a blind eye to some of its shortcomings, but it does not mean it is perfect.

      At the time I was recording this review there wasn't a turbo option. Just the two normally aspirated engines.

      All versions of Picanto come with disc brakes on all 4 wheels. Is strange but the 2nd generation Picanto with the 1.0 seemed more peppy than this new gt-line with a 1.2!

      I don't like city cars. It should serve a porpous be like a box with no quismos cost no more than 6-7000 euro so you don't cry too much when someone crashes you in parking. Ok on long journeys you need confort and power but not in small trips in the city. Go for basic dacia sandero iven thow it is in another class. Stop the suv madness.

      Is this the same class as a Honda Fit or a Seat Ibiza?  Those would be my pick.  I figure if you are buying in this class, forgo the "extras" & buy the most durable and spacious car in the class.  (Most important is durability because that equals resale value)

      It's a class lower. Seat Mii. Honda doesn't have anything this small.

      I'd like a small city car if only I could fit in it and get out again without being levered out.  I [well my daughter officially] had a Fiat Panda [made in Poland] for a few years. However my wife would not be seen in daylight with me in the car, or all three of us. She thought we looked like the Wombles of Wimbledon Common [look it up] stuffed in the car.
      It is eleven years old now and still going well, sold to my sister in law, who uses it to travel round the countryside for her job as a social helper. Its a 1300 diesel.

      In Greece the gt line does not come with the standard navigation system. The dealer told me that kia from now on will not install the navigation system but it will have connectivity with your smartphone! By the way in Greece gt line costs about 13500 euros. So I bought the i10 premium navi 1.2 liter with 12870 euros.
