Hey Fabian

We have had ours for only 2 weeks.
I guess we will know a lot more in a year or so, but right now we are VERY happy with it.

It's very comfortable. The seats are i our opinion very good, and the suspension very nice too. It's not a racer, mind you - but hey !
When you buy a mini with 68 BHP, you allready know that ;)

The power is what you can expect from a very small engine like this.

Fuel consumption.. well... 4,9 l. pr. 100 km. is what Kia says.
We have run 3 tanks through now, and the level is more like 6,6 l. pr. 100 km.

Still pretty economic, but where the 4,9 l. comes from i don't know :)
The danish Automobile union (FDM) came up with the same result, so we knew this before we bought our Picanto.
Maybe this will get better as the milage increases ?

I can only agree with Tubesnake on all mentioned aspects.

It's a neat little car!!!

Ours have the problem with the screeching rear brakes but it seemed to have gotten a little better. I'll give it a month then its back to the dealer.
Other than that its just a sweet little machine.

@Tubesnake: Nice to see a fellow dane here :)

hey drivers I would like to ask how is picanto?

example
fuel comsumation
power
comfort level..

Bro, I from SG too. Me from SGKIACLUB (moderator). For your question, paying that amount getting that kind of quality, I think is worth it. The FC is good at about 18km/l base on individual driving habits. The manuel has better power and as for comfort , I would say acceptable in its class.

agree with the rest above (tubesnake and others).

I've also had screechy back brakes, but only slightly and it disappeared after about two weeks. Mileage in Norway is quoted 4.5 litres for 100 km. My best is 5.2 litres and the worst is 6.4 litres and the average is about 5.7 litres per 100 km. 90% of my driving is at pretty steady slow highway speeds. This is for the 1.0 litre motor. I like this car in all respects, with the exception that I would not reccomend it for drivers over 180 cm. who do long distance driving.
