Long-term test: Kia Picanto 2 EcoDynamics

Mark Nichol

It's a glib thing to say these days, but Kia is a company on the up (there, we said it anyways). That's probably nowhere better demonstrated than in a new Picanto - a car that happens to be on the Up.

The Volkswagen Up, that is. It's a testament to how far Kia has come recently that its littlest car can be mentioned in the same breath as the latest from the mighty Volkswagen - the Up is the widely acknowledged class leader. But in our humble opinion, the Picanto looks better, at least.
