Did you know... the Kia Picanto has been honoured? Did you know... the Kia Picanto has been honoured twice? In fact, it claimed the 'Under £9,000' and the '£9,000 to £11,000' titles in the Parkers' Cost of Motoring New Car Awards. The judges considered a number of factors before handing the silverware to this affordable city car. These included: depreciation, maintenance, fuel, and road tax costs over three years/thirty-thousand miles.Kieren Puffett, Editor of Parkers, revealed: 'The first version of the Kia Picanto was a great city runabout and this all new version has upped the ante. Not only is it very practical and provides plenty of room for four adults, it’s a quality car at a very competitive price.' Did you know... the Picanto has other virtues to complement its low running costs? It has composed handling, for starters, and the ride is reasonably comfortable. The pleasing equipment specification helps too. Even the basic model has: power steering, central locking, a CD player, and electronic stability programme. The top-end trim has: Bluetooth, MP3 connectivity, and climate control too. The Picanto is clearly a capable mainstream alternative - if you can live with the arguably unfashionable badge. Finally, did you know that prices range from only £7,795 - £11,195? No wonder this city car keeps winning titles.
