What city cars with auto gearboxes do you recommend?

I want to buy a 2018 or 2019 automatic city car. What are your thoughts on the Hyundai i10 and Kia Picanto? I like these because of the warranty. What are your recommendations? Thanks.

A Hyundai i10 or Kia Picanto would be a great choice. As you say, they come with a long warranty, and they use very reliable torque-converter automatic gearboxes (rather than the frustrating automated manual transmissions used in many city cars). You won't find a better automatic city car.
