Kia Picanto 2022 Comparison with similar cars

Features-wise, the Kia Picanto is generally on-par with most of its rivals. The same goes for safety features. In terms of power though, the Picanto is one of the few city cars in the local market that may come with an inline-4 mill. This puts it on-par with the Honda Brio and Chevy Spark output-wise. In terms of style though, let’s just say that the model hasn’t received any significant updates recently in that department.
