Yes I rather like them Smile
 
I totally agree about all the gibberish written about the UP & Mii etc. The interiors on them are hideous & a quick look at all that painted metal puts me in mind of a cheap '70's car. They really don't look anything special.
 
The VW UP semi-auto also gets horrific reviews on-line but not in the 'press.
 
The one thing I have noticed is that I've not seen that many reviews in car magazine's of the new Picanto (unless I've missed them?) I've seen them AutoExpress & WhatCar but that's it, nothing in Autocar etc. Seems odd for a new car..

We picked the Picanto 2 auto up this morning Wink
 
Only slight niggle (so far) is that the little light clusters that the Daytime Running Lights are in, seem to have misted up a bit Cry, so i'll probably pop it back to the dealer at some point. Hopefully it's an easy fix.

I have just ordered a Picanto 3 in pop orange for my daughter.

We looked at all the models in the showroom and took a GT line for a test drive and my daughter decided that the 3 would suit her best, however the only 3s that were in the dealers were automatics so we have ordered one for delivery for the end of September.

What we did notice was that some of them in the showroom had height adjustable seats and some didn't, the dealer said it was pot luck what we would get.

I asked when the turbo was coming out and he said that they have been told that it will not be until next year now.

In the brochure the 3 has always been shown with height adjustable seats so I don't see why any would have been made without ?
 
The 2 wasn't shown as having them but ours does, however like I say they were always a feature of the 3.

I would have found it hard to wait that long, glad we have opted for the new Rio now, although for other reasons. Anyone waiting on the 1.0 T-GDI Picanto, stick with it, I'm sure it will be worth it 👍

I hope the brochure is right and the 3 does have height adjustable seats. The GT line and S that we looked at did not have them but the automatic 3s which they had did.
