Kia, like Hyundai, have had a huge impact on the UK and European car market over the last decade. One of the reasons their cars have become so popular is their long warranties and reliable reputation. For the new driver purchasing their first car reliablity is a key factor – Kia cars won’t let you down. For that reason – a Kia car is often found near the top of the Best Cars for New Drivers lists awarded by the automotive press. Their range of small cars suitable for new drivers include the Kia Picanto and the Kia Rio. Both models have undergone significant facelifts in the last few years making them very popular.

The Kia Picanto started it’s life in 2007 as a shortened version of the Hyundai Getz. Available in both 3 door and 5 door form – the Picanto has sold well worldwide as a small city car. It’s a popular first car being great for squeezing between traffic and fitting into small car park spaces. Now in it’s third generation – the Kia Picanto MKIII was launched in 2017 and had a minor facelift in 2020. For the record – the Picanto is based on the SAME platform as the Hyundai i10
The Kia Rio replaced the Kia Pride back in 2001 as Kia’s sub-compact car offering. The fourth generation of Rio was released in 2017. That MKIV version was later given a facelift in 2020 – at the same time as the Picanto’s modernisation. Unlike most other sub-compact cars the Kia Rio is available in 3 door and 5 door hatchback PLUS a regular 4 door saloon giving buyers plenty of choice.
