Not spectacular... but never let us down

The kia picanto won't win any awards in the driving stakes as it's very slow and not particularly nimble however it will hold its own in town. We had the picanto for 4 years and in that time did a lot of miles, probably not what the car was intended for but nonetheless it kept getting us from a to b with the minimum of fuss (albeit slowly)
It was surprisingly roomy for a small car although boot and ride quality were not great. Always started first time and flew through mots
Overall it served it's purpose well. It's not refined but if you're a pragmatist with the view that a car is for getting from a to b reliably then it fits the bill.
