Kia Picanto

The Picanto received a facelift in 2015 that has brought it bang up to date. It’s a brilliant car for value as your running costs will be very low plus the Kia’s 7-year warranty is unbeatable.

If you’re looking for a neat compact car that is attractive, spacious and excellent value then this could suit you down to the ground. Best of all you can bag yourself a brand new Kia Picanto with a low deposit and free insurance, discounted insurance or cashback.

Reasons to love the Kia Picanto

Sleek new design Plus Icon

Since its update, the Picanto looks far more stylish with a sporty, fresh design. It still retains its cuteness with the rounded curves and bug-eyed headlamps. There’s plenty of lively colours to choose from too especially if you opt for the five door model, so you can add some fun. Bold dazzling tones include Lemongrass and Fuchsia Blush.

Inside the Picanto is smart and comfortable with enough room to easily sit four adults.

A decent drive Plus Icon

The visibility is good on the Picanto and the steering is light and easy to manoeuvre so you’ll have no problem with tight parking spaces. Even with the most basic 1.0 litre three cylinder engine, the Picanto is a nifty drive powering easily around town and will effortlessly pull away from the traffic lights when you need it to. Like other city cars, it’s a slightly different story out on the open road where the smaller engine struggles.

Value for money motoring Plus Icon

Cheap running costs make the Picanto an attractive car for many first time or new buyers. The smallest 1.0 litre engine car has a decent fuel economy of 67.3mpg and emits an efficient 99g/km CO2. 

Lower insurance costs should also put a smile on your face, whichever model you choose. The smallest version is in insurance group two and this rises up to group six for the top spec models.

Safe and sound Plus Icon

Although the Picanto scored solid four stars in the Euro NCAP crash test. It’s re-assuring to know there’s a fair amount of safety kit as standard including ABS, airbags and traction control.

The amazing 7-year warranty that Kia offer is unrivalled by any other manufacturer and can’t help but give you confidence in the whole range of cars. It covers you for 100,000 miles or seven years (whichever comes first) but the first three years has unlimited mileage.

Frequently asked questions

How does the insurance work? Plus Icon

We offer you a personalised quote based on your age and postcode and the majority of our customers really do get free insurance. We know it's a big outlay buying and insuring your first car. We developed this offer to help ease the pain during what's probably going to be your most expensive year of car insurance – whilst you build up that first year's all important no claims bonus. Our insurance is underwritten by Allianz, one of the largest insurers in the UK.

Will I need to have a black box in the car? Plus Icon

Your new car will be covered by our New Driver Insurance. This uses clever black box technology to help you develop your driving skills – and if you drive safely and remain claim free, you can earn an additional discount at renewal. The majority of applicants will receive free insurance, but where this is not available we will offer you discounted insurance or cashback.

What happens after the first year? Plus Icon

We'll send you a renewal price, but you don't have to take it and if you can find a more suitable policy somewhere else you can move your insurance (we'll miss you though!)

How long until I get my new car? Plus Icon

Good question. It depends on the car you're after and how far you want to go customising it! If you want your car delivered ASAP give us a call on 0333 358 3441 to find out what's available now. If you've got your heart set on a certain colour or upgrade the car may have to be made to order.
