"Kia Picanto - THUMBS UP"

Great little car for running around the city, It is also good for travelling long distances from time to time but wouldn\'t buy the car if that was a daily habit. I wouldn't recommend more than 2 people travelling in the car for more than 15 minutes though because the back is extreamly cramped. The petrol consumption is brilliant and doesn't eat you out of pocket. The tyres need checking regularly as they do have a tendancy to 'deflate' as it were, within a week or so.

On my visit to Devon I was very proud that my car managed to make the four hour car journey and that when we got there it was able to go up the hills, even if it did need some persuading.

The GLAMOUR model that I purchased has a different look to the standard Picanto. The front grill especially looks alot more stylish and so did the silver dust caps ( before I had them pinched).

Overall a very good little motor car.
