57-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

For the price we paid it has surpassed all our expectations.We bought the cheapest new we could find,because we are on a contract in Spain .It would have been the last car we would have looked at if we were in the Uk but on saying that we would now have no problem in buying any car in the Kia range.

Small, economical, cheap to run. Sold as such and does exactly what it says it is. We already had a Kia Picanto in the family and I was happy to purchase my one second hand. Excellent little cars.
