Ten Second Review
Kia Picanto Lease Review - The Picanto is a car range which is known for small stuff under the bonnet, with a 1L engine and a 1.25L engine available frugality is the name of the game. You'll definitely save a fair bit of money, but also sacrifice acceleration and power when going up hills. Therefore if you're wanting to get from A to B in the shortest time possible then this won't be the best choice.
The latest Picanto range from Kia is able to offer drivers a little bit extra in almost every area. In terms of size it's bigger than previous models, offering drivers more room inside and a little more presence on the road. The finish and interior is of a higher quality and all round looks a bit tidier. In terms of fuel usage you also get extra miles for each gallon put in. In addition to all of this you reduce your CO2 emissions as well with a cleaner burning engine.
If you want to reach high speeds you'll have to be prepared to push the engine hard though. This doesn't cause any real performance issues but it does cause quite a lot of noise. Therefore prolonged motorway driving can be a bit of a aural battle between the stereo and the engine.
Parking is easy due to it being a conveniently sized city-car and so most spaces don't present any challenges. This is one perk of the lack of size/power you do manage to squeeze into spaces where others simply wouldn't have a chance.
Anyone who valued the Kia brand and is looking for a small car is looking at a no brainer decision here.
