Kia Picanto- the economic superstar

18/01/2019

The Kia Picanto has been roaming our roads since its South Korean manufacturers released it in 2004. The Picanto is still manufactured at the Donghee joint-venture plant in Seosan, South Korea, and has been for the last fourteen years.

The city car has won many awards in its short lifespan, so far winning the iF product design award in the "Transportation Design" category in 2011 and the Red Dot award in the "Automobiles, Transportation, Commercial and Water Vehicles" category in 2012.

Top Gear magazine also named the Picanto "Bargain Car of the Year" in 2011. The Association of Scottish Motoring Writers also awarded the car as "Best Small Car" in the same year. And in South Africa, the model took the Standard Bank People's Wheels Award for "Budget Buys - Affordability First" for three years from 2011 to 2013.

What other reasons are there to love this car?
