KIA PICANTO, AVAILABLE AT LEVEN KIA, WINS USED CAR OF THE YEAR AT THE FIRSTCAR AWARDS
Kia’s smallest model, the Kia Picanto, has been awarded ‘Used Car of the Year – up to £5,000’ at the 2019 FirstCar Awards. The Picanto adds to its many accolades with this award and remains extremely popular with young adults and first time car buyers.
The cars are judged on their safety, reliability, value for money, affordability, ease of driving and practicality and the Picanto was top of its class.
Gordon Kelly, Kia Senior Sales Executive, at Leven Kia Selkirk said: “It’s fantastic that the Picanto has been recognised at the FirstCar Awards. We find that most of our customers here in Scottish Borders purchase a Picanto as a first car or as a small runaround. We look forward to welcoming more new drivers to our dealership to see and drive the Kia Picanto for themselves.”
David Motton, Editor of FirstCar said: “A used Kia Picanto makes a great first car for any new driver and Kia’s seven-year warranty should protect against unexpected bills. Being so small, the Picanto can squeeze into the tiniest parking spaces, and the light controls make it easy to drive. The Kia is surprisingly practical for such a little car, and fuel-efficient engines and low insurance groupings make it affordable to run. We can’t think of a better first car for a new driver with £5,000 to spend.”
Leven Kia Edinburgh & Selkirk stocks a wide range of new and used cars, including the highly praised Kia Picanto.
