  1. gary shapland :
    The changes and the updates on this car makes it a real contender to be taken seriously in the small city car market. It looks super modern and as if from one of the Major manufacturers like Ford or Vauxhall, but look at what you get, a 7 year warranty. We will see more and more of the Kia Picantos on the road as people downgrade, renew and basically save money. Well done KIA, keep them coming.
