Car Profiles - Kia Picanto

KIA PICANTO

Back then, this was the most cheapest car you can buy brand new. Nowadays, prices are similar to other rivals but comes sparsely equipped. 1.2 is engine of choice but Kia only offers the 1.0, which needs to be revved. It is easy to own and drive, though.

The Good: Easy to drive and park
The Bad: Not much standard equipment

Price Range: P575,000-P650,000
Our Rating: **
