If you asked me I’d say it’s because the interior of your car is where you’d spend most of your time with it, and it is indeed where most of your money goes in when buying the new top spec Kia Picanto Smart.
Most of us use small cars for their great fuel economy, but some shy away from them as the tend to feel cheap, I’m here to tell you that that doesn’t always have to be the case. The new Kia Picanto has enough style and spec to suite just about anyone.
The leather trim on the steering wheel has a good premium feel to go with the leather seats and the gear knob trim. The whole facia design is reminds us a lot of the latest generation Kia Rio.
The 7 inch infotainment display is by far one of the main attractions. It features Apple Car Play and Android Auto, meaning you can access more of the apps from your phone through the touch screen, like your google maps navigation app.
The boot space came as a bit of a surprise considering how small the car is. A medium suitcase easily fits with space for smaller bags around it. The rear seat can be folded with a 60:40 split in case you have larger items that you’d like to take.
There is more than enough legroom in the rear of the Picanto even with 2 1.71m tall occupants seating one behind the other.
Prices for the Picanto Range Start at R134,900 to R195,900.
