TG Awards 2011: bargain car of the year
The Kia Picanto is a small car with a lot to shout about...
Posted: 26 Dec 2011
The Picanto flies past. It feels more solid than its bargain status would suggest. There's something very grown up about the way it drives, from the smooth 1.25-litre petrol to the damping that feels far more intelligent than anything else at this price - softish front springs to absorb whacks around town, stiffish rear beam to keep things tidy through corners. And I'm not sure if a car has ever done a stoppie, but the brakes bite hard enough to give it a go.
