The all new Kia Picanto has been on sale since June 2011 and is available with the 1.0 and 1.25 Kappa petrol engines, priced from £7.795 for the three door and £7.995 for the five door.

The Kia Picanto has been named Northern Car of the Year by the Northern Group of Motoring Writers.

Presenting the award, Derrick Grocock, Vice-Chairman said: "Kia's consistent quality and style have seen them become the only company to have two vehicles in the Top 10 on three separate occasions – and this year Picanto topped the bill with the all-new Sportage right behind.

"Picanto was a clear winner thanks to its looks, quality and excellent packaging which makes it such a perfect city-car," he added.
