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.

      Typical review.... Talks about the cup holders at length, but never mentions the height adjustable drivers seat which is the jolly good reason I bought one.

      Looks fantastic in GT-Line spec, available in the UK with the 100PS 1.0L 3cyl turbo. A 'GT' edition with the 1.0L 120PS engine out the Rio would be great.

      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.

      It was cloudy. I don't wear them, because I want to look cool, but because squinting into the sunlight is just as bad.

      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.
