The brand new-look Kia Picanto ticks a whole lot of packing containers.
However one field that is not ticked this time round is “enjoyable”. That is as a result of the model has axed the very best model of the Kia Picanto, the GT (see my evaluation of the earlier one linked beneath), and as an alternative simply provides a few variations with a uninteresting non-turbo engine.
Sure, the Picanto (aka Kia Morning) remains to be good in a heap of how, together with the actual fact you will get it with a 5-spd handbook stick shift, or a 4-spd automated gearbox for simply $1000 extra.
And there are robust drive-away costs for the brand new 2024 Kia Picanto vary, together with the bottom mannequin Sport and the GT-Line examined on this evaluation.
Extra security tech? Sure. Nonetheless a protracted 7-year guarantee? Sure. No actually good alternate options? Right…
So yep, in order for you a small low-cost automobile, it is the very best you will get. But it surely’s lacking that one essential ingredient that it used to have. How unhappy.
