Hello,


I am very interested in buying a Picanto 1.0, have read all the reviews and been for a test drive. My own worry is that each review describes it as a great"City Car". My commute is a 50 mile round tripwhich consists of country roads and A roads then a bit of stop start for the last3 miles. The A roads are quite fast averaging 55-60 mile per hour. Do you think this car is suitable? I see that performance is a negative with this car.



I looked at the Rio Petrol 1.4 as wellbut the fuel economy isn't so good - higher tax as well. Can't seem to find so many reviews on it but maybe it has a bit more "poke" and more suitable for my purposes.



Any advice much appreciated.



Thanks

I did france and back in a Picanto 1 1.0 the other week. Not a bad motorway cruiser for its size. I wouldnt recommend it for more than 150 miles at a time but it coped admirably with my run.


If you are worried, find a rental company with one on fleet an hire one for a day or so, use it as part of your routine.
