My first car!! And my first post, so be kind. Apparently this is a runout model as the specs have been refreshed for 2016. New 5 door car with aircon and long warranty. Metallic paint costs about £500 more. Not many of the white ones left. Hope this help someone.

I'm no expert, but that seems like a very good price

From £8,545?

how much are they on lease?

Better cars out there even at this price point.

You have to either pay a fee to buy at the end, give it back or part ex it (so the link says in the small print)

odd think they may be confusing folk. Is this a lease or an outright purchase ? OTR implies purchase but the words suggest not in the example Finance.

It seems quite clear to me, cash price £6,995. The other price is if you take out a personal contract, paying £4,068 over 36 months so need to pay the balance if you want to own the car at the end of the lease.
I am sure on the forecourt they have applied a little more discount for the cash buyer so the price will be 6,795, if you can find the cash.

Really? Which ones? Have you ever driven or owned this new model?

My wife has a Hyundai i10 that replaced a Honda Jazz and have to say it is very good. Quiet, comfortable and good performance easily matching the Jazz, just with a bit less space. She tried the VW Up! and Skoda equivalent but after extensive test driving the i10 it was chalk and cheese, with the i10 winning by a mile.

So don't knock the Korean manufacturers until you try them.

Good car, if they are being sold on a run out deal for a shade under 7K, then I would go in and offer them £6K near the end of September, they will probably say no. Leave your contact details and walk away...... you will probably get a call when they need to clear the last ones out.

what car give 2 stars - However, the Picante is particularly disappointing to drive, outclassed by the likes of the VW Up and its Citigo and Mii sister models. These rivals also beat the Picanto when it comes to interior space and running costs, because they emit less CO2, use slightly less fuel and will hold on to their value better in the long run

Given how bad I thought the Seat Mii and VW Up were after having a test drive, I would take what they say with a pinch of salt and go try them myself!

Really? Suzuki Alto? Sandero (although not in the same class as more tax and less MPG). Can't think of anything else?

Found the drive very numb also the base engine feels slower than other 1.0 cars. For the slightly more powerful one it's £10k. The Aygo triplet's are too expensive now too.

None of those have anywhere near the reliability of the Kia. The Kia knocks spots of those & VW group are facing multi law suits for false claims. VW have not been that reliable for a longtime. Living on past glories.

Anyone know whether this is available in 6 speak auto?

Hannah, you won't pull many fellas in that thing... jeez.

@HOTPOT What past glories? Mk2 GTi aside, VW's have always been overrated crap. Never been all that reliable at any time. I remember some old Polo's and Golf's getting rust spots before 10 years old and engines only reaching 70k before going kaput, even after head gaskets were replaced.

​VWs are better now, I've had three new Polos in last 7 years and all been reliable, but actually regretting getting the latest one as quality has definitely deteriorated. Wish I'd gone for a Kia now, probably will next time.

I like your style, sir.

Forget poncey reviews, try making your own mind up, even these days it's possible. I would never go for a VAJ group car, they are so awful these days, been there and done it.
Nice car for what it is and nice price

Ahh, that would account for my September 2015 Golf GTi being ultra reliable then! Not is a rattle or a squeak from the interior either! Great price for the Kia. You'd never pick a new Citigo or Up! for that price.

What Car? are unofficially sponsored by VW Group. Every single test comes up the same, VW always win, it's a well known 'joke'.

Well done on your £30k (ish) Golf lasting a WHOLE YEAR!

Wow you have done well lasting a whole year! my two company Audi's averaged 4 months between hugely expensive warranty claims to be fair they were doing 30k a year so equivalent 10k or annually to an average milage but still very unreliable.

Could that be a pre-registered one?

Might be good to point out that Kia's still come with a 7 year warranty. 7 Years of trouble-free driving.

It's an excellent first car you're very lucky we'll done.
PS don't listen to the VanityWagon sceptics.
