2017 Kia Picanto S manual

2017 Kia Picanto S manualAnd Kia has played right into that with this latest iteration, moving the front wheels forward to extend the wheelbase, increase cabin volume and shorten the front overhang, while increasing the rear overhang to add 55 litres to the boot volume (now a useful 255 litres) without increasing the overall length of the car (3595mm, if you need to know) by a single millimetre.

The new Picanto is no larger than the model it replaces; 1.4m tall, 3.5m long and 1.5m wide. Built on a new platform, the new city car boasts a longer wheelbase and longer rear overhang (the front overhang is reduced by 25mm, to 675mm).

The Kia Picanto is, all things considered, an almost faultless city car. It has light steering, feels go-kart-like despite the low power on offer, is easy to manoeuvre and easy to position in tight streets while offering excellent all-round visibility. Crucially, it’s also easy to park, with a clear rear-view camera, and basically really simple to drive.

While it’s not the outright best small car on offer, nothing else can compete with the Picanto when it comes to value and inclusions, and that’s where it mounts its strongest argument. If you need a city runaround you’d be mad not to take a close look at the 2017 Kia Picanto.
