Actually, this went back yesterday but I've only just had a chance to post these pics.
I'm not sure the facelift the Picanto recently underwent did its looks any favours but apart from that I was pretty impressed.
What's best about the Picanto is that it offers four doors, lots of equipment and enough space, at a pinch, for four adults. That's pretty remarkable when you consider it's a whole class - at least in terms of price - below mainstream European cars such as the Polo and Clio.
It's not a bad drive either - more evidence that Kia is on the up.
