Which city car has the best automatic gearbox?

What is the best automatic city car to buy? I've looked at the Citroen C1, Peugeot 108 and Toyota Aygo.

I wouldn't recommend a C1/108/Aygo - they use a frustrating automated manual gearbox rather than a 'proper' auto. I'd suggest a Kia Picanto with its four-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox.

Key areas are much improved over 107. Easy to drive and park in town. Sprightly and lively petrol engines. Fabric-roofed 'Top' version available.
Cheap to run with zero tax on all models. Improved interior quality and refinement over previous C1. Available with retractable fabric roof. Decent at motorway speeds.
Plenty of kit as standard. Quirky looks.
