Right, if your thinking of getting this then look at VW polos instead. they are much more reliable. I treated this car so gently and it broke down after 6 months (8,000) miles. The engine failed and needed a whole new and geerbox… Read Full Review

I am an Approved Driving Instructor and purchased this 1.1 automatic to replace a Hyundai Amica.
Small engined as it may be the Kia has more than enough power to climb the hills round here, do a days work as a driving school car and return 38.9 mpg.
At motorway speeds it is surprisingly civilized, not too noisy and keeping up with the other traffic.
So far with just under 1000 miles I am more than pleased with the little car.
BTW my other car is a BMW 525 auto and I positively enjoy driving… Read Full Review

I bought the Kia Picanto 1.1LX for my wife who was expecting our first child at the time. We par exchanged her H Reg Fiat Uno 1.0, and got the dealer down in price almost £1,000. The result - for just under 6k, a car with ABS, A/C, dual air bags, remote central locking, all 4 windows are electric, leather steering wheel and gear nob, and much much more. Top Gear says the Picanto is a poor effort, and to buy the Fiat Panda instead. I say drive them both and you'll soon give the Panda up for… Read Full Review
