Great little car

I bought this Picanto new in January 2020 after I retired and traded my Ford Fiesta. I bought new battery and tyres. Done 73000 ks and have driven across the Nullarbor Plain from Adelaide to Perth WA three times. The only problem we had was keeping it to 110kph. At times she crepted to 150 we out me realising as it was such a smooth drive. My only complaint is the boot which is quite small. Will probably trade it in next year for a new one. Show details

Flimsy front grill

Front grills are supposed to provide a good deal of protection to important equipment behind. My experience is that there is very little as was proven by a recent collision with a pheasant. I use my gt-line getting around and shopping in Cumberland 3 to 4 days a week Show details

Unreliable and unsafe; Worst After Care Service Imaginable

I was so excited about buying my first new car ever. In my search I narrowed it down to 3 cars and after test driving all 3 purchased this one. Number one selling point was the Apple Car Play system and the wireless connectivity. The day I picked up my new car it did not work ... was told to update my IOS system when I got home; which I did. Still no success. Reported it straight away and 10 weeks later still falling on deaf ears. I am so so disappointed and now all that is left to me is going to the ACCC. Buyer Beware .... appalling, non-existent, be-littling after care service.  Show details

Love it. Love it. Love it

Purchased my Kia Picanto on 7 October 2020 and already I love it. It has all the features that you could possibly want. Yes it is a micro car, but it feels much bigger. Handles superbly and you can park on a postage stamp. I use it to commute to and from work on a daily basis in the city. Fantastic. I am hoping that they will bring out the 1 litre turbo to Australia. I would really like to test drive that. It also has capped price servicing, 7year warranty and roadside assistance. How could you go wrong Show details

Best compact car of 2019!!

One of the best compact cars around! Very economical on petrol. Packed with many features (Apple CarPlay, electric windows, cruise control, reverse camera view, autonomous emergency braking system and leather seats!) Definite value for money! Ideal little car to get from A to B! Show details

Fantastic Car!! Love it

Economical

Drives well, and feels refined

Bought the GT Line so it’s got the upgraded seats, and more aggressive body styling, looks the part

Best value for a car of this size & has apple car play, Bluetooth, auto headlights, radar control breaking, parking sensors, reversing camera, auto headlights, and so much more, an overall great package and highly recommended

Can anyone tell me how the GT-Line 5-spd Manual perfoms on the highway ie what RPM does it spin @ 100kph and noise levels etc, thanks

Chad

It pulls around 3000 RPM and achieves roughly 5.5L on the highway.
The auto pulls around 4000 RPM and it is quite noisy.
